Reasons for difference and revision

(1) Reason for the difference

Regarding its consolidated earnings forecasts for the six months ended September 30, 2011, the Company disclosed those forecasts in range format because it was difficult to predict them accurately due to uncertainty in the global economy and the impact from the Great East Japan Earthquake. The Company now has actual results, and announces them as above. The reasons for the difference are mainly increases in raw materials prices and the impact of the appreciation of the yen.

(2) Reasons for the revision

Regarding its full-year consolidated earnings forecasts for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2012, the Company is reviewing the impact from the large October floods in Thailand on its business results to the extent possible.

(Note) The above business performance has been predicted by referring to information available at the time of the release of this document. The actual results may differ from the predicted figures due to a variety of factors that may be observed in the days ahead.
