The Company sees its net sales for the fiscal year 2012 in line with its expectations, but operating income fell short of the Company's expectation due to increased selling costs and general, administrative expenses. In the meantime, income from continuing operations before income taxes increased due to factors including foreign exchange gains deriving from Yen's depreciation. Net income attributable to the Company also increased to exceed the Company's expectation mainly because of positive tax effects and decreased non-controlling interests.
