  2. Reasons for the Adjustment to FY07 Interim Consolidated Financial Results Forecast
    Sales in the industrial automation and electronic components segments, the OMRON Group's core businesses, are expected to fall short of the forecasts announced on April 26, 2007. As a result, the Group's interim operating income is expected to fall short of the previously announced forecast by a margin that requires disclosure according to the Group's internal disclosure policy.
OMRON's internal disclosure policy stipulates that an amendment must be announced if net sales, operating income, income before income taxes or net income will differ from forecasts by 10% or more.
In accordance with U.S. GAAP, figures for the FY06 interim period have been reclassified in relation to operations discontinued during the first quarter of FY07.
The figures in these financial results forecasts have been calculated based on the information currently available to management. A number of factors could cause actual results to differ materially from expectations.
