2. Factors Causing the Revisions
In the six-month period ending September 30, 2014, the Square Enix group's net
sales, operating income, ordinary income, and net income are expected to
exceed respectively the range of the Company's consolidated results forecasts
previously disclosed on May 12, 2014. This is mainly attributable to the
following factors: repeat sales of software titles for consumer game consoles
are exceeding the original plan, 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 2015 at this point, mainly due to the
uncertainties in the second half of the fiscal year.

The forward-looking statements in this document are based upon the information
currently available, and necessarily include elements that are not entirely
predictable. Actual results may differ from the forward-looking statements in
this document.
