The achievement ratios of non-consolidated earnings results for the second quarter of 2008 were 93.4% in ordinary profit and 118.7% in net income against the previous forecast which announced in August 8th, 2008 (forecasted ordinary profit; 3,900 million yen, net income; 2,000 million yen for the first half of 2008).
The second quarter sales were almost the same as last quarter. The operating income increased slightly from last quarter reflecting cost reduction efforts in selling, general and administrative expenses. Increase in ordinary profit and net income are attributable to the increase in non-operating income from dividends from the consolidated subsidiaries. However, this income will be eliminated in consolidated results.
