Reasons for the revision
The recent business environment surrounding the Company continued to be severe as the IT equipment and home appliance shipments have been decreasing after the markets passed their peaks. Also, the global automotive production recovery has been delayed, the US housing starts have been decreasing, and the demand for capital investments has passed its peak. In addition, the demand for our EV-related products was affected by the production slowdown due to the lockdowns in China. Reflecting these changes in the business environment, the Company recorded restructuring expenses and revised its fiscal 2022 earnings forecast.
The provided financial forecast assumes the exchange rates of ¥110 against the U.S. dollar and ¥125 against the euro, the same exchange rates used for the preparation of the previously announced forecast.
During the nine months ended December 31, 2022, the Company completed the provisional accounting treatment for business combination. As a result, figures for the year ended March 31, 2022 reflect the revision of the initially allocated amounts of acquisition price
