Reason of Revision

(1) Projection of the first half of Fiscal Year

Under difficult economic condition, housing  industry at first half of  fiscal 
year 2012 still proceeded in difficult situation as seen from low level of new
housing starts, and especially fall of number of owned houses compared to same
period in previous  year. As for  our company, performance  of panel  business 
progressed in  severely difficult  situation as  orders of  Japanese  building 
materials and panel stairs dropped below from our prospects earlier.

Therefore our sales,  operation income,  ordinary income, and  net income  are 
expected to go below our projection  and hereby make announcement of  revision 
of the projection.

(2) Projection for the full Fiscal Year

From  the  third  quarter  onward,  we  are  intended  to  take  measures  for 
improvement in  productivity and  reinforcement of  sales. Therefore  at  this 
moment, we are not  making revision for the  projection for the third  quarter 
and after.
