The details are as follows.

Net income Attributable to Nidec Corporation per share-basic   398.72  404.26  --   --   59.28

2. Reasons for Revision

The upward revision is intended to reflect the increase in the Company's sales and profits for the six-month ended September 30, 2013, which exceeded the previously announced financial guidance.

The exchange rates used for the preparation of the revised forecasts are US$1 = ¥95 and €1 = ¥125. The exchange rates between the relevant Asian currencies and the Japanese yen used for the preparation of the foregoing forecasts were determined assuming these exchange rates.

"Net income attributable to Nidec Corporation per share—basic" reflects the decrease of 3,740,382 shares in the Company's treasury shares as a result of the share exchange transactions with Nidec Copal Corporation and Nidec Tosok Corporation to make them wholly-owned subsidiaries, effective October 1, 2013.

The consolidated financial results for the year ended March 31, 2013 have been retrospectively adjusted to reflect our valuation of the fair values of the assets acquired and the liabilities assumed upon the acquisition of SCD Co., Ltd. and Nidec Kaiyu Auto Electric (Jiangsu) Co., Ltd. in the three months ended December 31, 2012. We completed our valuation of such assets and liabilities during the three months ended September 30, 2013.
