Reasons for the differences and revisions

Net sales for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2019, are expected to exceed our original forecast because of an increase in product prices driven by factors such as a rise in naphtha prices, and of the depreciation of the yen. Profits, however, are expected to fall short of our original forecast, based on the assumption that trade conditions will worsen amid increases in naphtha and other raw material and fuel prices, and of declines foreseen in overseas markets.

Note: Forecasts are based on information available to the company as of the date of the news release. Actual results may differ due to unforeseeable factors.
