5. Reasons for Amendment
<Interim Term>
The ordinary profit for the mid-term will be increased by 570 million yen from the initially predicted figure, due to the increase of profit by increased sales, the reduction of fixed expenses which is made by rationalization of purchasing material and out-sourcing expenses and by condensation of investment in equipment.
In addition to the factors for increased profit, the profit after tax for the mid-term will be increased by 860 million yen because additional retirement expenses due to the special early retirement program required 270 million yen less than initially planned.
Factors for the consolidated ordinary profit are mainly that of Fuji Univance Corporation which is the company filing the consolidated financial statement. In addition, the consolidated mid-term profit will be increased by 730 million yen over that initially predicted due to exchange losses of 100 million yen created by the yen-basis borrowing of the Indonesian subsidiary.

<Fiscal 2000>
Ordinary profit for fiscal 2000 will see an increase of 1,050 million yen by maintaining the profit of the first half of the term.
Profit after tax for the current term will see an increase of 400 million yen by appropriating the expenses, 470 million yen, to the second half of the term, which is required for shut down of the Misakubo Plant, as announced previously.
Amendments to the consolidated ordinary profit and profit after tax for the current term are those made mainly by Fuji Univance Corporation.
The difference, 1,419 million yen, is required by Fuji Univance Corporation due to a change in accounting system, switching from "Retirement Allowance Reserve" to "Retirement Allowance Liabilities" and will be depreciated in 5 years. The depreciation for the current term, 283 million yen, has been disposed of as extraordinary losses. Half of the annual depreciation amount has been appropriated on the interim report.
