(2) Reason of revision
After the previous projection had been released, operating income and ordinary income were improved owing to the reduction of SG&A expenses and others. However, forecasted net income was deteriorated, as the some part of deferred tax assets of the fiscal 2009 cannot be recorded according to the strict deferred tax accounting policy and the provision of valuation allowance for the some part of deferred tax assets of the fiscal 2008 was recognized.
2. Valuation allowance for deferred tax assets
As a result of considering the realizability of deferred tax assets strictly, 36.3 billion yen of provision of valuation allowance was realized and recorded as income tax- deferred (tax expenses). On the other hand, 3.1 billion yen had been already realized as provision of valuation allowance of deferred tax assets at the end of third quarter of the fiscal 2009 (on December 31, 2008), therefore the total amounts of 39.4 billion yen was recorded as tax expenses.
Note: Above mentioned projections are based on certain assumptions and our management's judgment in light of currently available information, therefore actual results may differ from these projections.
