   ended September 30,
   2012
2. Factors Causing the Revision
   In the six-month period ended September 30, 2013, the Square Enix group's
   operating income, ordinary income, and net income are expected to exceed
   respectively the range of the Company's consolidated results forecasts.
   This is mainly attributable to the following reasons: net sales in some
   areas exceeded their plan such as distribution of software titles for
   consumer game consoles in North America, software sales of "FINAL FANTASY
   XIV:A REALM REBORN," a multiplayer online role playing game released in
   August 2013, and sales of arcade game machines; and the Company is making
   continued group-wide efforts of cost reduction. Therefore, the Company has
   decided to revise its previous consolidated results forecasts.

   

   On the other hand, the Company does not revise its consolidated results
   forecast for the full year ending March 2014 at this point, mainly due to
   the uncertainties in the second half of the fiscal year.
