Operating expenses for the term included 12,359 million yen in operating expenses for noncategorized spending covered in the eliminations line item.
The amount for the previous corresponding term was 12,069 million yen. Such costs were mainly for the Internal Audit Department,
the Corporate Culture Department, the Corporate Planning Department, the R&D Planning Department, and other administrative operations, as well as for long-term basic research spending.

3.

At fiscal year-end, companywide assets included in the eliminations line item were 168,754 million yen, which was mainly for parent company financial assets, administrative operations, and construction in progress.
The previous-year amount was 166,261 yen. From the period under review, there has been a change in the method of accounting for in-house assets. In line with the change, financial assets held by the parent company (cash and cash equivalents, short-term investments in securities, and investments in securities), previously allocated among various business divisions, are now included in companywide assets. Figures for the previous year have been adjusted to reflect this change. Compared with the previous reporting method, assets of the Cosmetics Division, Toiletries Division, and Others Division have declined by 97,223 million yen, 30,328 million yen, and 8,637 million yen, respectively, as a result of the change. The parent company's financial assets, included in the eliminations line item in the previous consolidated fiscal year, amounted to 136,189 million yen.

4.

In line with a partial revision in rules for reporting consolidated financial statements, previous-year figures affected by the revision have been adjusted accordingly.
