PT Mandom Indonesia Tbk represents a significant portion of the Company's consolidated and overseas earnings. PT Mandom Indonesia is also a publicly traded entity in its home country, having its financial statements prepared and presented according to local regulations. Because PT Mandom Indonesia has a different fiscal year (December year end) than the Company, quarterly earnings for this entity are released earlier than those of the consolidated whole. In consideration of fairness, the Company has elected to disclose the earnings of PT Mandom Indonesia on the Group's investor relations website at the same time that earnings for this entity are released in the local market.
Please understand that the Company cannot respond to any inquiries regarding segment information, qualitative information, earnings forecasts, or consolidated earnings as related to these preliminary figures. The Company will only respond after consolidations and/or earnings forecasts have been officially released in Japan.
