TOKYO, February 5 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- HOYA Corporation today announced financial results for the third quarter ended December 31, 2008. Net sales were 112.7 billion yen for the quarter, representing a decrease of 23.3% from 147.0 billion yen in the third quarter of 2007, mainly due to order decrease and the drop in the product price resulting from global economic downturn in the main business fields such as the Electro-Optics and Vision Care, as well as PENTAX that was included in the scope of consolidation during the same period of the previous year.
