2. Reasons for the Revisions

In the business environment of the Dowa Group during the first six months of the fiscal year ending March 31, 2020, demand for automotive and electronic components remained lower than the previous forecasts. Meanwhile, demand increased for products related to new energy in China. In the foreign exchange market, the yen remained strong. In terms of metal prices, those of gold and silver increased while those of zinc and copper were relatively low.
Given such background, net sales of waste treatment in the Environmental Management & Recycling segment are expected to exceed the previous forecasts. The Nonferrous Metals segment is expected to see an increase in precious metal prices and a decrease in loss due to the lowering the book value of zinc inventory. In addition, net sales in the Metal Processing and Heat Treatment segments are likely to fall from the previous forecasts.
As a result, the consolidated financial results of the Dowa Group are expected to exceed the previous forecasts.
Moreover, the Group has revised the previous full-year forecasts for the fiscal year under review, taking into account the latest business environments.
Assumptions on the financial forecasts are as follows:
