Toshiba Issues Revised Business Forecasts for the 1st Half of FY2005

21 October, 2005


Tokyo--Toshiba Corporation today issued revised consolidated and non-consolidated business forecasts for the first half of fiscal year to March 31, 2006. Today's announcement revises the forecast that Toshiba issued with the announcement of its results for the first quarter of FY2005, on July 28, 2005. The key points are as in the table below.

1. Consolidated forecast
1st Half FY2005 (Apr. 1, 2005 through Sept. 30, 2005)   (¥billion)
1. Consolidated forecast
(Note) From FY2005, income (loss) before income taxes and minority interest includes equity in earnings of affiliates, which was not included until FY2004. The impact of this change of presentation is plus 0.1 billion yen for the first half of FY2004 and plus 6.5 billion yen for the first half of FY2005. The above comparison with the year-earlier period is based on the new accounting presentation.

2. Non-consolidated forecast
1st Half FY2005 (Apr. 1, 2005 through Sept. 30, 2005)   (¥billion)
2. Non-consolidated forecast

3. Reasons for revision
The Electronic Devices segment including the semiconductor business, and the Social Infrastructure segment, including the industrial and power systems & services and medical systems businesses, are moving forward more strongly than originally anticipated. As a result, Toshiba Corporation will see higher consolidated and non-consolidated figures over the previous forecast.

Interim dividend for FY2005 is expected to remain at 3.00 Japanese yen per share, as announced on September 16, 2005.
