Net sales are expected to proceed according to the previous financial forecasts.
However, on the cost side, selling, general and administrative expenses are expected to decrease from the previous forecasts, mainly due to a decrease in research and development costs.
Consequently, in the revised consolidated financial forecasts for the year ending March 31, 2011, the Company anticipates that net sales are in accordance with the previous forecasts, 365.0 billion yen, operating income increases 4.0 billion yen to 22.0 billion yen, ordinary income increases 4.0 billion yen to 19.5 billion yen and net income increases 2.0 billion yen to 11.0 billion yen compared to the previous forecasts dated October 29, 2010.
