3. Background of revision

 

Regarding the first half year ended September 30, 2016, net sales, operating profit, profit before income taxes, and profit attributable to owners of the parent were lower than last forecast, due to lower overseas sales.

Regarding the full year ending March 31, 2017, we revised its forecast as above because we have allocated costs for structural reform for our future business growth.

We will not change our forecast for the cash dividends for the year ending March 31, 2017.
