Reasons for Revisions
During the first two quarters of fiscal 2014, all business segments of the OMRON Group performed strongly, with increased sales in every business segment. Therefore, both net sales and profits have surpassed those announced previously. For the third quarter and beyond, OMRON Group expects demand to stay robust. Based on this understanding of the environment, OMRON Group has revised its full-year performance forecast upward as stated above.
The assumed exchange rates for the third quarter onward in the performance forecasts are USD 1 = JPY 100 and EUR 1 = JPY 135.
The performance forecast is based on information available to the Company at the present time, and on certain assumption judged by the Company to be reasonable. Due to various factors, actual results may differ from the forecast.
