  2. Reasons for Revisions

    TDK expects sales of main finished products and demand for electronic components used in them in the electronics market to be softer than anticipated in the second half of fiscal 2012. Accordingly, TDK’s orders and capacity utilization rate are expected to remain below the level assumed in TDK’s previous forecast. Furthermore, TDK has decided to implement additional structural reforms due to changes in the company’s business environment. TDK has been implementing structural reforms with the aim of improving its earnings structure. As a result of these additional reforms, TDK expects to book higher structural reform expenses than previously assumed.

    TDK booked income taxes of approximately \12.0 billion, due to the impact of a corporate tax reduction and the special corporation tax for reconstruction, as well as to the reassessment of the recoverability of deferred tax assets.

    • Note: These projections are based on information available to TDK at this time. Actual business performance may vary as a result of various factors arising in the future.
