Reasons for the Revision

During the first half of the fiscal year favorable demand for such products as 3G mobile communication base stations and system-on-chip devices used in digital audio-video equipment helped boost profitability. Although negatively impacted by such factors as continued pricing pressures in the Solutions & Systems Integration segment and lower sales of mobile telephones, thanks to progress in reducing costs and expense reductions from restructuring efforts undertaken in the previous fiscal year Fujitsu expects consolidated operating income to exceed its previous forecast. The company also anticipates higher than previously forecast net income as a result of higher operating income as well as improvements to its balance of financial income and expenses, net foreign exchange gains and other factors.
