2. Reason of the Revision

As for the consolidated earnings forecast for the first and second quarter of this term, operating and ordinary incomes are estimated to be lower than the previously announced estimates, mainly because cost of sales exceeded the estimate due to the difference in estimated term-end inventory of the group company that sells tires and wheels.
In addition, in the segment of other businesses, considering the situation in which the performance of the experimentally operating agricultural business is estimated to be poorer than the forecast, an impairment loss of fixed assets related to said business amounting to 336 million yen was included in extraordinary losses, and so net income attributable to owners of parent is estimated to be lower than the previously announced estimate.

The full-year consolidated earnings forecast is now under review, and if it becomes necessary to revise the earnings forecast, we will disclose it swiftly.

  • Note: The forecasted values written in this document were produced based on the available information as of the release date of this document, and so actual business performance may be different from the forecasted values due to various factors.
