2. Reasons for Revisions

 Our decorative paints business in China, a mainstay business of our Group, and our decorative paints business in Turkey delivered a solid performance due to continuing strong market conditions and price increases. In addition, our Group’s earnings were robust in Asia, Oceania, and the Americas. In Japan, our performance was below our forecast due to a resurgence of the COVID-19 pandemic.
 Our profits were significantly affected by shortages of raw materials and higher raw material prices worldwide. While the higher revenue driven by strong market conditions raised our profits, we also implemented actions to boost profitability, such as reviewing selling, general and administrative expenses and reducing headquarters expenses. After taking into account factors including the yen’s appreciation against major currencies compared to our assumed exchange rates, as well as the transfer of shares accompanied by changes to subsidiaries and the dissolution and liquidation of a consolidated subsidiary announced today, we have decided to increase our forecast for revenue, operating profit, profit before tax, and profit attributable to owners of parent for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2021.
