Reasons for the revision for the financial forecast

The financial results for the three months ended June 30, 2018 exceeded the Company's previous expectations. In view of the favorable growth in this period, the Company has decided to revise its previously announced financial performance forecast for the first-half and year-end for the year ending March 31, 2019. The provided financial forecast assumes the exchange rates of ¥100 against the U.S. dollar and ¥125 against the euro, the same exchange rates used for the preparation of the previously announced forecast.

Notes:

  1. The exchange rates used for the preparation of the foregoing forecasts are US$1 = ¥100 and €1 = ¥125. Yen exchange rates against Asian currencies have been set in relation to the exchange rates between the U.S. dollar and the respective Asian currencies.
     
  2. During the year ended March 31, 2018 and three months ended June 30, 2018, the Company completed the provisional accounting treatment for business combination. As a result, figures for the six months ended September 30, 2017 and the year ended March 31, 2018 reflect the revision of the initially allocated amounts of acquisition price.
