Correction to News Release Concerning Fiscal 2007 Third Quarter Earnings Distributed at 15:30 on January 30, 2008 (Japan Time)
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASEJanuary 31, 2008
OMRON Corporation has announced a correction to the news release entitled 'OMRON Corporation Reports Earnings for the Third Quarter of Fiscal 2007 ', which it published via an independent news distribution agency at 15:30 (Japan time) on January 30, 2008.
The correction concerns a difference between the English translation and original Japanese text in the section of the release entitled '(3) Projected Results for the Fiscal Year Ending March 31, 2008 (April 1, 2007 - March 31, 2008)'.
"In this environment, the OMRON Group's net sales, which increased over the same period of the previous fiscal year in the first three quarters, are expected to remain firm in the fourth quarter. However, net sales are likely to fall short of previous projections for the full year as a result of lower-than-expected capital investment demand."
No corrections have been made to the Japanese earnings information and OMRON regrets any confusion caused by this error. The full English translation of OMRON's earnings report can be accessed at: https://www.omron.com/ir/pdfs/20080130_quarterly_results.pdf
Qualitative information regarding OMRON's earnings has been translated from Japanese as a for non-Japanese investors and contains forward-looking statements that are based on management's estimates, assumptions and projections at the time of publication. A number of factors could cause actual results to differ materially from expectations.
