Sigma anual turnover - 33 billion yen

On the Corporate Information page of the Sigma Global site they divulge that as of 2016 Sigma had over 33 billion yen in annual turnover (about $300 million US). I don't think that would come from their camera sales, because I don't believe that Sigma makes that many cameras.

I do think that eventually Sigma will sell over a million cameras yearly Worldwide, which would translate to billions of yen per year, but for now I doubt it's more than a few thousand cameras per year, which translates to less than 10% of their annual turnover, no doubt. To me this is evidence that Sigma makes the bulk of their profit, if not all of it, from the sale of their lenses. I believe Mr. Yamaki has actually said they do not turn a profit on camera sales, so if the company is profitable, where else would they make profits, other than lens sales? Flashes? Camera/lens bags?
