2. Reasons for the revision

Net sales and operating and net income for the three months ended June 30, 2013 exceeded our expectations at the beginning of the period. Therefore, we have decided to revise upward our previously announced financial performance forecasts, in most part, to the extent that our net sales and operating and net income for the three months ended June 30, 2013 exceeded our expectations at the beginning of the period. Accordingly, we have revised upward our previously announced financial performance forecasts for the six months ending September 30, 2013 and the fiscal year ending March 31, 2014.

Notes:

(1) The exchange rates used for the preparation of the foregoing forecasts are US$1 = ¥95 and €1 = ¥125. The exchange rates between the relevant Asian currencies and the Japanese yen used for the preparation of the foregoing forecasts were determined assuming these exchange rates.

(2) Pursuant to ASC 805 "Business Combinations," our consolidated operating results for the three months ended June 30, 2012 have been retroactively adjusted to reflect our valuation of the fair values of the assets acquired and the liabilities assumed upon the acquisition of Nidec ASI S.p.A. and Nidec Minster Corporation. We completed our valuation of such assets and liabilities during the three months ended March 31, 2013.
