Consolidated Financial Guidance for FY2020
Earnings for the consolidated first half outperformed our initial announcement but we conducted a downward revision to our full-year earnings forecast due to changes in assumptions related to the COVID-19 pandemic and changes in assumed currency rates.
Furthermore, our previous announcement assumed the impact of COVID-19 lasting through the consolidated first half but we did not reflect the impact of COVID-19 on the consolidated third quarter onward due to the difficulty of making reasonable projections. Based on an evaluation of current conditions, we have changed to an assumption that the impact of COVID-19 will continue through the end of the current consolidated fiscal year. Furthermore, in light of current conditions, we have changed currency rate assumptions to the assumption that yen appreciation against the US dollar, the euro, the Chinese yuan, and the Brazilian real will be higher than assumptions at the time of our previous announcement.
