2. Reasons for Revisions to Earnings Projections

Net sales projections have been revised downward by 50.0 billion yen to 4,490.0 billion yen. Sales of PCs, car audio and navigation systems, and LSI devices have been revised downward due to delays in procuring certain parts and customer production adjustments due to the flooding in Thailand. In addition, the downward revision in net sales also reflects lower sales of services and server-related products because of delays in the recovery of ICT spending inside and outside Japan, as well as lower demand for LSI devices and electronic components.

Operating income projections have been revised downward by 35.0 billion yen to 100.0 billion yen. In addition to the impact of lower sales of services, server-related products, PCs, car audio and navigation systems, LSI devices, and electronic components, the downward revision in operating income reflects the adverse impact of higher HDD procurement costs due to the Thai flooding.

As a result of the projected decline in operating income, net income projections have also been revised downward by 25.0 billion yen.
