  2. Reasons for revision of FY2019 earnings forecast
    With sluggish auto sales continuing in Europe, new car sales in China have been stagnant due to sharp downturn in consumer confidence caused by economic slowdown and prolonged trade frictions with the U.S. Under these circumstances, Sumida group has been tackling the tasks of enhancing profitability by improving productivity and reducing materials costs etc., despite of lagging sales. As a result, we have decided to revise up the earnings forecast previously disclosed on July 31 this year.
