2. Reasons for the revision

As the economic deterioration in Europe continues to have an adverse effect on
the global economy, including China and other emerging economies, the demand
for our products is expected to decrease further. In light of this trend and
other factors, we have reviewed our previously announced financial performance
forecasts, which were based on our assumption that the trend would reverse and
the demand would increase in the six months ending March 31, 2013, and have
determined to revise downward our previously announced financial performance
forecasts for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2013.

However, we have not revised our dividend target for the fiscal year ending
March 31, 2013, which remains at JPY95 per share.

Notes:

(1) The exchange rates used for the preparation of the foregoing forecasts are
US$1=JPY78 and €1=JPY95. The exchange rates between the relevant Asian
currencies and the Japanese yen used for the preparation of the foregoing
forecasts have been determined assuming these U.S. dollar-Japanese yen and the
Euro-Japanese yen exchange rates.

(2) "Net income attributable to Nidec Corporation per share—basic" reflects
the share exchange transaction between Nidec Corporation and Nidec Sankyo
Corporation on October 1, 2012 to make Nidec Sankyo a wholly owned subsidiary,
in which transaction 3,175,315 shares in the aggregate of treasury stock of
Nidec Corporation were allocated to Nidec Sankyo shareholders.
