Japanese holding company Index Corporation, which wholly owns Catherine developer Atlus, saw its losses decrease in the last fiscal year, thanks to its video games businesses. In an earnings statement for the fiscal year ended August 31, 2011, and as translated by Andriasang, the company revealed that its video game results had been boosted thanks to significant sales of Catherine, which saw over half a million sales in total. The company had previously said that the game shipped 200,000 units in its first week on sale in the U.S., noting that it was the biggest launch in Atlus' history. Parent company Index also said that its Persona series saw strong sales during the last fiscal year. Over its video games businesses, including Atlus, the mobile-focused Index and the online-focused Rosso Index, the company saw sales of ¥18.5 billion ($240.9 million) and operating profits of ¥2.3 billion ($29.95 million). Overall, Index posted revenue of ¥22.9 billion ($298.18 million) for the last fiscal year, down 34 percent year-on-year, and losses of ¥4.5 billion ($58.60 million), compared to ¥7.4 billion ($96.36) in the previous year.
