As a result, profit attributable to owners of the parent is forecasted to be ¥22.5 billion (up 104.0% year on year), which is ¥14.3 billion higher than the previous forecast.
Furthermore, regarding the full-year consolidated financial forecasts, although the forecasted figures announced on May 13, 2016 have been left unchanged, should a revision to the financial forecasts become necessary in the future, the Company will make an announcement as soon as possible.
