2. Reasons for Differences

Compared with the previous forecast (announced on March 11, 2014), operating income and ordinary income were decreased mainly because of a drop in crude oil prices which caused inventory valuation loss under lower-of-cost-or-market method in petroleum business.
On the other hand, net income was increased chiefly because of upward revision of profits of consolidated subsidiaries. The revision was attributed to a consolidated taxation system which was introduced this fiscal year.

(Assumptions at the previous forecast: a crude oil price of US$104.7/bbl and an exchange rate of JPY100.1/US$ )
