The achievement percentage of non-consolidated earnings results for the full year of 2007 against the previous forecast (announced in February 1st, 2008) were 89.5% in ordinary profit and 92.4% in net income. The differentials in operating profit brought about weaker-than-expected sales as our customer postponed their capital investments reflecting stagnated semiconductor market and depreciated oversea sales by exchange fluctuation. We also posted exchange loss in the non-operating expense item caused by abrupt appreciation in the yen in the fourth quarter.

Consolidated net sales of 22,175 million yen for the fourth quarter of 2007 were down 4.8% from the third quarter of 2007 and down 6.8% from the fourth quarter of 2006. For the full year 2007, net sales were a record high of 91,618 million yen. However, the sales did not reach the previous forecast amount (94,500 million yen) by 3.0%, announced on February 1st, 2008. The drop in sales brought about weaker-than-expected non-consolidated sales as we announced on April 1st, 2008 and depreciated oversea sales amount due to exchange fluctuation.
