(2) Background of revision

The new forecast of Ricoh's consolidated operating results for the full year ending March 31, 2017, is based on both current business performance and business environment, and so net sales will be lower than the last forecast. Also, Ricoh's corporate tax expense increased due to the Advance Price Agreement*1 made between Japan and US tax authorities. As a result, the net income attributable to Ricoh Company, Ltd. will be lower than the last forecast.
