Kirin Revises Non-consolidated Earnings Forecasts for the Fiscal Year 2009
Tokyo, January 25, 2010—Kirin Holdings Company, Limited ("Kirin") has revised its non-consolidated earnings results forecast for the fiscal year 2009, (previously announced on February 10, 2009) in consideration of its recent business performance and other factors, as follows:
1. Revision of Non-consolidated Earnings Forecasts for the Fiscal Year 2009
(January 1, 2009 to December 31, 2009)
|Net income||Net income per share
|Previously announced forecast (A)||91,000||65,000||66,000||65,000||¥68.11|
|New forecast (B)||108,000||84,000||84,000||82,000||¥85.95|
Actual results for the previous fiscal year (fiscal year 2008)
2. Reasons for the revision
The revision is due to larger dividend income from affiliates than initially forecast.
Note, however, that as the current non-consolidated earnings revision is due mainly to revision of dividends from affiliates, there will be little impact on the consolidated forecasts.
