Reasons for the revision
MHI expects that the company's net sales and income for FY2008 will be lower than the previously announced estimates as a result of: 1) the downward revision of projected sales, mainly in the operational segment of Mass and Medium-Lot Manufactured Machinery, reflecting the sharp deterioration of market conditions in this global-scale economic recession; 2) reexamination of unfixed currency exchange rates to bring them in line with recent market rates, on which financial results estimates were premised and 3) the reflection of the most recent estimates for financial results of the company's equity method affiliates.

Please note that this estimate has been projected with currently available information and data. The actual results, therefore, may diverge broadly with the influence of a variety of outside factors such as economics surrounding MHI, currency movement of the yen to the U.S. dollar and other foreign currencies, and trends of stock markets in Japan.
