2. Reasons for the revision

As the economic deterioration in Europe continues to have an adverse effect on the global economy, including China and other emerging economies, the demand for our products is expected to decrease further. In light of this trend and other factors, we have reviewed our previously announced financial performance forecasts, which were based on our assumption that the trend would reverse and the demand would increase in the six months ending March 31, 2013, and have determined to revise downward our previously announced financial performance forecasts for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2013.
