Reasons for Revisions

Although sales is outpacing previous forecasts, on the income front the Company has been affected by losses in North America and Mexico since the third quarter in PHILIPS-brand LCD TVs, audio accessory-related products and other items. Particularly in the fourth quarter, performance is being affected by the expenses to liquidate inventories. Such factors are expected to have a substantial downward impact on profitability. Accordingly, we now expect operating income to fall below previously forecast figures.
Owing to this worsening of operating income, the Company also expects ordinary income and net income to fall below its previous forecasts.

(Note)  The earnings forecast is based on information available to the Group at the time such forecast is made, and contains risk and uncertainty. Actual results may differ from the forecast due to a variety of factors including changes in the economic conditions of overseas markets such as the United States (a key market for the Group), and significant fluctuations in product prices and foreign exchange.
