Toshiba supplies computer chips to Apple
Toshiba has said it made a smaller-than-expected loss in the final three months of last year due to a recovery in its electronic components business.
The company made a net loss of 10.6bn yen ($117.5m; £72.7m) compared with a loss of 121.1bn yen a year earlier.
Toshiba's chip business suffered heavy losses last year but was recovering, the company said.
Group revenue for the quarter rose 6% to 1.58 trillion yen, from 1.49tn yen a year earlier.
Toshiba, which supplies chips to Apple, has lowered its yearly revenue target from 6.8tn yen to 6.4tn yen, but kept its forecast for a 50bn yen loss for the year ending March 2010.
The company described sales of its televisions as "healthy", but blamed a decline in sales of home appliances on the economic downturn.
