2. Reason for revision of the consolidated financial forecasts
In this fiscal year, the Company expects to recognize \1.0 billion which is a gain from the transfer of some shares held by the Company. In addition, income taxes are forecasted to be lower than the previous assumption due to the Company’s recognition of losses on sale of investments in subsidiaries for tax purposes following a repayment of paid-in capital from a U.S. subsidiary to the Company in order to collect capital from the U.S. subsidiary as part of the Company’s capital policy to optimize the global allocation of cash in the Company. As a result, the Company has revised profit for the year forecast to \58.0 billion, up \11.5 billion from the previous forecast, and profit attributable to owners of the parent forecast to \57.0 billion yen, up \11.5 billion yen from the previous forecast. ROE (Return on Equity attributable to owners of the parent) is expected to be 7.5%.
There is no change from the previous forecast for revenue and operating profit.
The annual dividend forecast remains unchanged at ¥160 per share (\80 per share at the end of the second quarter and \80 per phare at the end of the fiscal year).
* Please note that actual business results may change due to several factors since the above-mentioned forecasts were made based on information available as of June 8, 2022.
