Regarding the HDD market, according to forecasts, in March 2013 it was the market size of 570 million units. The number has changed for March 2014 and we believe it to be 530 million units. In terms of shipment index in 1Q of 2013 is to be 100, 4Q of last year was 71, and 1Q of this year was 74, and 2Q to be 81. There were impacts from the industry adjustment of June resulting in impacts in 1Q, but in 2Q we will have server head demand increase and increases in game devices so we believe that shipments will increase by 10%. Thank you.
