Index, the company that now houses Atlus, was in the red in its previous fiscal year. But there was some bright news in the company's games business thanks in large part to Catherine.
In its earnings statement for the year spanning September 1, 2010 through August 31, 2011, Index saw sales of 22,934 million yen, down 34% from the same period last year. The company posted a lower net loss of 4,498 million yen, down from the 7,376 million net loss last year.
The company's games business, which includes Atlus, the mobile focused Index, and the online focused Rosso Index, saw sales of 18,452 million yen and operating profits of 2,695 million yen. The results were boosted by Catherine, which sold 500,000 units in Japan and abroad. The company also mentioned strong brand performance for the Persona series.
