Explanation for the variance between forecast and results
With impacts from the Great East Japan Earthquake, the company's net sales for the first half of fiscal 2012 which ended September 30, 2011 fell below the previous forecast due to postponements of large-scale projects in the Energy and Electric Systems segment and other factors. The company's profits in the same period, on the other hand, exceeded its previous forecast mainly owing to various business improvement measures as well as earlier-than-expected recovery from the earthquake as seen in the Industrial Automation Systems segment with its production normalizing efforts.

Explanation for the forecast revision
With the yen remaining strong against foreign currencies and concerns arising towards a slowdown in global economy, the company's net sales for fiscal 2012 ending March 31, 2012 is expected to fall below its previous forecast announced on July 29, 2011. By further strengthening the company's various business improvement measures, profit figures are expected to be achieved as previously forecasted.
