2. Reasons for the revision

The performance of our core decorative paints business has been steadily growing. In our automotive coatings business, however, automobile production has remained below our expectations globally due to the shortage of semiconductor chips and the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result, our consolidated revenue is projected to be roughly in line with our initial forecast.
In the meantime, the raw materials price inflation has been longer lasting worldwide than we initially anticipated. We responded to the higher raw material prices by taking actions such as increasing selling prices, procuring substitutes for necessary raw materials, and reviewing SG&A expenses. However, these actions have only partially absorbed the higher cost of raw materials, etc. After taking these factors into consideration, we have decided to revise downward our earnings forecast for operating profit, profit before tax, and profit attributable to owners of parent for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2021 from our previously announced forecasts.
