The Information and Telecommunications Systems segment and the Social Infrastructure and Industrial Systems segment are the company’s most productive business units. At the same time, Hitachi’s Automotive Systems segment continued to produce tepid results: segment revenue increased by five percent over the previous fiscal year.
