2. Reason for revision
Sales are expected to exceed those of the previous forecasts because they are showing basically favorable trends both in Japan and overseas even though there are influences by yen's appreciation. Continued efforts are exerted for effective control of expense budget, and in addition, partly due to strong yen, some retrenchment is expected on the expenses of the Company's U.S. subsidiary, all contributing to possible reduction in the total expenses from the previous forecasts.
Consequently, in the revised consolidated financial forecasts for the year ending March31, 2011, the Company anticipates that net sales increase 6.0 billion yen to 365.0 billion yen, operating income increases 9.5 billion yen to 18.0 billion yen, ordinary income increases 9.5 billion yen to 15.5 billion yen and net income increases 6.0 billion yen to 9.0 billion yen compared to the previous forecasts dated July 30, 2010.
