TOKYO -- Struggling screen maker Japan Display reported a first-half net loss of 108.6 billion yen ($995 million) on Wednesday, hit by sagging sales and plant impairment losses as it continues seeking patrons for a financial bailout.

This marks a record first-half loss for JDI, as the company is known, and the sixth consecutive half that it has reported red ink.
