/EIN News/ -- KYOTO, Japan, July 24, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Nidec Corporation (TSE: 6594; OTC US: NJDCY) (the “Company”) today announced a downward revision to its IFRS-based consolidated financial forecasts for the fiscal first-half of the year ending March 31, 2020, originally announced on April 23, 2019.

The details are as follows:

From April 1, 2019 to September 30, 2019 (Millions of yen, except for per share amounts and percentages)

  For the six months ending September 30, 2019 (Reference)       
For the six months ended
30, 2018
(April 23, 2019)

Earnings per share attributable to owners of the parent - basic 193.01 125.72 -   -   265.70

Reasons for the revision for the financial forecast
In the three months ended June 30, 2019, the Company incurred loss on the transfer of Secop refrigeration compressor business. Accordingly, the Company revises downward its consolidated first-half forecast for profit attributable to owners of the parent. The full-year forecast for the year ending March 31, 2020 remains unchanged.


  1. The provided financial forecast assumes the exchange rates of ¥105 against the U.S. dollar and ¥125 against the euro, the same exchange rates used for the preparation of the previously announced forecast.
  2. During the year ended March 31, 2019, the Company completed the provisional accounting treatment for business combination. As a result, figures for the six months ended September 30, 2018 reflect the revision of the initially allocated amounts of acquisition price.
  3. From the three months ended June 30, 2019, the Company classifies the refrigeration compressor business of Secop as discontinued operations. As a result, the amounts of net sales, operating profit and profit before income taxes no longer include discontinued operations, presenting only the amounts for continuing operations.
