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.
