Nintendo Co. Ltd. announced earnings results for the first quarter ended June 2014. For the quarter, the company reported operating loss of JPY 9.47 billion.

The company reported JPY 9.92 billion losses compared with JPY 8.62 billion profit a year earlier. Sales were JPY 74.695 billion, down 8% from a year earlier. The company suffered an operating loss because total selling, general and administrative expenses include fixed expenses exceeded gross profit.

The company left unchanged its forecast for a JPY 20 billion net profit on sales of JPY 590 billion for the year to March 2015.
