2. Factors behind the Revision

(1) Non-consolidated basis

(a) Six months ending September 30, 2009

KUBC expects banking profit (before provision of reserve for general loan losses) to be ¥12.5 billion, ¥1.0 billion more than the previous forecast, mainly attributable to gains on sales of bonds amid rising bonds markets.

KUBC is scheduled to merge with The Biwako Bank, Limited on March 1, 2010, and in order to improve its asset quality prior to the merger, it has revised its evaluation of collateral and borrower categories more conservatively because of the accelerated decline in land prices under the uncertain economic circumstances. As a result, KUBC expects total credit cost to be ¥20.5 billion, ¥14.5 billion higher than the previous forecast. Ordinary loss will be ¥8.5 billion, ¥13.3 billion lower than the previous forecast.

With recording of extraordinary gains on sale of headquarters building of ¥9.5 billion, KUBC expects net income of ¥1.0 billion, ¥1.5 billion lower than the previous forecast.

 

 

(b) Fiscal year ending March 31, 2010

KUBC revises its earnings forecast for the full year reflecting the factors mentioned above.

 

(2) Consolidated basis

KUBC revises its earnings forecast on a consolidated basis reflecting the factors mentioned above.

 

 

KUBC expects year-end dividend to be ¥3.00 per share, as announced on May 14, 2009.
