2. Reasons for revision

The third quarter saw lower earnings on lower revenues from the second quarter, mainly due to the effects of the extensive flooding in Thailand and disruptions in supply chains. The fourth quarter is expected to see these effects weakened and an improvement in earnings month after month. However, as a result of having reassessed our business performance on a full-year basis, operating income and ordinary income are both expected to decrease, and the Company revises its consolidated performance forecast for the full year. There is no revision to the forecast of net income.

(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.
