Q&A Session


Which businesses or matters do you book as impairment losses?
And what is the background for booking impairment losses?


We booked impairment losses mainly for long-lived assets of InfoPrint Solutions Company(now Ricoh Production Print Solutions) of Production Printing business. When we conducted impairment tests internally in accordance with U.S.GAPP, we identified impairment losses for Production Printing business.


I’d like to ask you about decreasing dividend forecast. Why did you propose 25 yen per share?


Unfortunately, we had to reconsider about dividend because of the latest forecast losses in net income for FY2012/03. Although we basically adhere to a stable dividend policy, the current situation is a surplus except for one-time costs (for example impairment).


Do you see signs of deterioration in your business due to the Euro area economic crisis?


While there are differences from country to country in Europe, we see some evidence of a deteriorating business environment. Still customers choose Ricoh based on our proposals to improve customer’s TCO and cut costs in a tough business environment. We constantly work on improving our solution proposal skills and aim to grow further.
