Q: Regarding your statement that you will promote reform in business and cost structure while immediate recovery in demand is not expected, what are the specific schedule and content of such reform?
A: We accelerated the continuous structural reform since in the middle of FY2014 when we determined that immediate recovery in demand cannot be expected. The content of such reform includes our decisions on cost reduction, reallocation of resources to a business that has high potentials to expend profits and is in short of resources, and employment restriction, etc. We further accelerate implementation of these strategies in FY2015. Furthermore, regarding inventory, we are promoting further reduction of orders and manufacturing lead time at SCM reform, and continue to work on such reduction.
