2. Reason for the revision
In the Digital Contents business, sales of the major new title “Resident Evil 6” were initially strong but subsequently weakened. As a result, sales for this title are certain to fall short of the plan.
In addition, the launch of “Monster Hunter 4”, which was scheduled for March 2013, has been pushed back to the next fiscal year in order to further raise the quality of this game.
For these reasons, sales, operating income, ordinary income and net income are all expected to be less than the figures in the previous forecast for the fiscal year.
There is no change in the year-end dividend forecast of 25 yen per share.
Note: This forecast is based on information that is available on the forecast announcement date.
Actual results of operations may differ from this forecast for a number of reasons.
