2. Reasons for Revisions to Earnings Projections

Net sales for the first half of the fiscal year were 32.5 billion yen lower than projections. Sales of network products and mobile phones were higher than the previous projections, but sales of services outside Japan were lower than projections, due mainly to declines and delays in ICT investment in the United States and Europe. The appreciation of the yen also impacted sales. Operating income totaled 47.1 billion yen, exceeding projections by 12.1 billion yen. Despite lower-than-expected sales of services outside Japan, higher network products sales and group-wide efforts to lower costs and reduce expenses contributed to the improved profitability. Net income was also higher than projections.


Regarding financial projections for the full fiscal year (April 1, 2010 –March 31, 2011), previously announced July 29, 2010, the company has revised its net sales projection from 4,800.0 billion yen to 4,670.0 billion yen, or a decline of 130.0 billion yen. The lower projection is due primarily to declines and delays in ICT investment in the United States and Europe along with the impact of yen appreciation. The full-year projections for operating income and net income are unchanged. For details, please see "Fujitsu Reports Fiscal 2010 Second-Quarter Financial Results" announced separately today.
