Showa Denko K.K. Revised Consolidated Earnings Guidance for the Full Year Ending December 31, 2014; Revised Consolidated Earnings Guidance for the Full Year of 2015

Showa Denko k.k. revised consolidated earnings guidance for the full year ending December 31, 2014. For the year, the company expects net sales of JPY 885,000 million, operating income of JPY 25,000 million, Ordinary income of JPY 24,000 million and net income of JPY 5,000 million or JPY 3.40 per share compared to previous guidance for the net sales of JPY 895,000 million, operating income of JPY 32,000 million, Ordinary income of JPY 26,000 million and net income of JPY 7,000 million or JPY 4.68 per share. Net sales will decrease due mainly to lower selling prices of ethylene and other petrochemical products, reflecting the sharp decline in naphtha prices caused by the sudden drop in crude oil prices. Operating income in the Petrochemicals segment will decrease significantly. This is due to the sharp decline in olefin prices on the international market, resulting from the more-than-expected decline in naphtha prices, and the use of high-priced stock of naphtha for production. Operating income in the Aluminum segment will also decrease due to the rise in procurement costs of aluminum ingot. Ordinary income and net income will decrease due mainly to the decline in operating income. The company revised consolidated earnings guidance for the full year of 2015. For the year, the company expects consolidated net sales of JPY 960.0 billion, operating income of JPY 40.0 billion and net income of JPY 15.0 billion and ROA of 4.0% compared to previous guidance for the net sales of JPY 950.0 billion, operating income of JPY 50.0 billion and net income of JPY 25.0 billion and ROA of 5.0%.
