The previous interim term-end amount was 159,755 million yen. In the previous fiscal year, there was a change in the method of accounting for in-house assets.

Figures for the previous interim term 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 92,254 million yen, 28,996 million yen, and 6,690 million yen, respectively, as a result of the change, while companywide assets rose by 127,941 million yen.
