3. Reason for the revisions
  The view of the world economic outlook has drastically deteriorated since the breakout of the global financial crisis and the subsequent global economic slowdown has started to affect actual business activities. The semiconductor industry is confronting a recessionary trough due to an excess-supply problem and they are maintaining their cautious stance toward capital investment. Taking these into consideration, we have made the above revision to the previous forecasts for fiscal year 2008 announced on August 8, 2008. However, we will continue to invest in strategic R&D for future growth, while continuously working for cost-reduction.
