2. Reasons for the Differences

As for the consolidated results, revenue was down comparing to previous fiscal year because the sales of real estate and equipment of our solar power plants and revenue from the joint investment project in Hawaii and foreign currency exchange profit related to assets denominated in foreign currencies, etc., were recorded in the previous fiscal year. In the current fiscal year, operating loss was recorded due to recording of attorneys' fees and other acquisition expenses incurred in the course of making The Prospect Japan Fund Limited (hereinafter referred to as "PJF") a subsidiary as selling, general and administrative expenses. However, net profit attributable to owners of the parent for the year increased compared with the previous year due to continuing revenue from the joint investment project in Hawaii as in the previous year as well as recording of profit on negative goodwill in connection with PJF becoming a subsidiary.

With respect to individual results, revenue from the joint investment project in Hawaii and profit on sale of solar power generation projects which the Company invested in and developed, etc., were recorded. However, operating profit, ordinary profit and net profit for the year decreased compared with the previous year mainly due to recording of professional advisory fees related to the renewable energy business in selling, general and administrative expenses as well as an increase in the tax burden resulting from an increase in taxable income, etc.
