Reason for the revision

As announced on March 31, 2020, in the consolidated financial statements for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2020, aone-time amortization of goodwill (130.5 billion yen) is planned associated with an impairment loss on shares of Bank of Ayudhya Public Company Limited , a consolidated subsidiary[2].

At the same time, the volatile market movements in the fourth quarter are expected to have an impact on profits attributable to owners of parent company of approximately 65.0 billion yen due to impairment of shareholdings and aone-time amortization of goodwill associated with the impairment loss on shares of equity-method affiliates.

In addition, the recording of provisions for some credit in light of the impact of theCOVID-19 pandemic is expected to have an impact of approximately 35.0 billion yen on profits attributable to owners of parent.

As a result, we have revised our earnings target downward by 230.0 billion yen to 520.0 billion yen.
