Item 2. Business Results and Financial Position
1. Summary of Financial Results
(1) Consolidated Financial Results
Kyocera develops, produces and distributes various kinds of products mainly for the telecommunications and information processing and environmental protection markets. Kyocera Corporation was established in 1959 as a manufacturer of ceramic parts for electronic equipment such as telecommunication equipment and has been expanding and diversifying its business mainly through active mergers and acquisitions, as well as applying its fine ceramic technologies to the areas of semiconductor parts, electronic devices, telecommunication, metal processing, medical and dental implants and solar energy fields. Kyocera develops, produces and distributes devices for digital consumer equipment such as mobile phone handsets as well as printers and copying machines. Kyocera earns revenue and income and generates cash through sales of these products.
Despite a lack of vitality in personal consumption, the Japanese economy expanded moderately during the first half due to upward momentum in private capital investment amid growing exports and rising corporate earnings.
While the U.S. economy slowed down mildly due to the negative impact of issues related to housing loans for individuals with low creditworthiness, an increase in exports and brisk personal consumption led to growth in the European economy. The Chinese economy continued to expand on the back of increases in capital investment and exports.
The digital consumer equipment market, which is the principal market for Kyocera was solid on the whole as demand for components for such equipment expanded compared with the six months ended September 30, 2006 (the previous first half).Net sales for the first half increased compared with the previous first half, reflecting an increase in sales in the Information Equipment Group and sales growth in the Components Business.
Consolidated profit from operations increased and income from continuing operations before income taxes and minority interests increased as compared with the previous first half. The adequacy of the estimates, on which the depreciation method of property, plant and equipment are based, was reviewed, as a result of taking the business situation into consideration being triggered by the tax revision in Japan.
- 3 -
Consequently, the depreciation method was changed and this led to increase in depreciation costs. Due mainly to the increase in depreciation costs, the Components Business recorded a decline in operating profit compared with the previous first half. The Equipment Business posted profit growth in the first half due to a substantial increase in operating profit in the Information Equipment Group.
Consolidated net income during the first half decreased compared with the previous first half. This decrease was due to the absence of tax refunds accompanying the voidance of a portion of a tax assessment relating to transfer pricing adjustment and temporary gains including a gain on sale of shares of Kyocera Leasing Co.,Ltd. , which took place in the previous first half.
Overseas sales during the first half increased by 4.3% compared with the previous first half. Since almost all overseas sales were denominated in U.S. dollars or Euro, and average exchange rates of yen were weaker against U.S. dollars and Euro by ¥4 and ¥16 respectively compared with the previous first half, the depreciation of the yen against these currencies during the first half of fiscal 2008 produced a positive impact of approximately ¥22.6 billion in net sales compared with the previous first half , after translation into yen.
- 4 -
Consolidated results by reporting segment are as follows.
1) Fine Ceramic Parts Group
Sales in this reporting segment during the first half, especially of dielectric ceramic parts for base stations and sapphire substrates for LEDs increased compared with the previous first half, reflecting growth in the mobile phone market. Sales of piezo stacks for automobiles also increased. Operating profit decreased as compared with the previous first half, due to an increase in expenses such as depreciation costs.
2) Semiconductor Parts Group
Despite a moderate increase in demand in the three months ended September 30, 2007 (the second quarter) for ceramic packages, a core product in this reporting segment, for use in mobile phone handsets as compared with the three months ended June 30, 2007 (the first quarter). Sales decreased in this reporting segment compared with the high levels of those recorded in the previous first half. Operating profit decreased along with sales decline and increase in expenses such as depreciation costs.
3) Applied Ceramic Products Group
Sales and operating profit in this reporting segment increased significantly in the first half compared with the previous first half due to higher sales and operating profit recorded in the solar energy business, which is a core business in this reporting segment.
- 5 -
4) Electronic Device Group
Performance in this reporting segment during the first half was solid in the electronic components business. Besides an increase in sales at AVX Corporation, sales of ceramic capacitors for flat-panel TVs and game consoles and of timing devices for mobile phone handsets increased. As a result, overall sales in this reporting segment for the first half increased compared with the previous first half. Operating profit decreased due to an increase in depreciation costs, despite improved profitability spurred by the increase in productivity.
5) Telecommunications Equipment Group
Sales in this reporting segment for the first half decreased compared with the previous first half due to a decline in sales of mobile phone handsets in overseas markets. Operating loss was reduced compared with the previous first half due to a considerable improvement in profitability in the domestic mobile phone handset business and the PHS related business.
6) Information Equipment Group
Sales and operating profit increased substantially in this reporting segment for the first half compared with the previous first half due to strong sales of printers and color digital MFPs in Europe in particular, coupled with the positive effects of the weak yen against the Euro.
Sales in this reporting segment for the first half decreased compared with the previous first half due to a decline in sales of optical related business. Operating profit increased substantially, however, due to improved profitability at Kyocera Communication Systems Co., Ltd. and reduced loss in the optical related business.
Although sales in the Electronic Device Group decreased, sales in the Fine Ceramic Parts Group and the Semiconductor Parts Group increased. Therefore, sales in domestic market as a whole slightly increased as compared with the previous first half.
- 6 -
2) United States of America
Due to decrease in sales in the Electronic Device Group and the Semiconductor Parts Group, revenue decreased compared with the previous first half.
Sales of products in the Electronic Device Group were favorable and the sales also increased in the Information Equipment Group.
Therefore, revenue increased compared with the previous first half.
Sales in the Information Equipment Group, the solar energy business in the Applied Ceramic Products Group and the Electronic Device Group increased. Hence, revenue increased compared with the previous first half.
Mainly due to decrease in sales for Latin America in the Telecommunication Equipment Group, revenue in this area substantially decreased.
(2) Cash flow
Cash and cash equivalent at September 30, 2007 decreased by ¥7,700 million to ¥274,508 million compared with at March 31, 2007.
1) Cash flow from operating activities
Net cash provided by operating activities in the first half increased by ¥31,675 million to ¥79,598 million from ¥47,923 million in the previous first half. Although net income decreased, and payables and accrued income taxes that increased in the previous first half decreased in the first half, receivables and inventories that increased in the previous first half decreased in the first half. As a result, cash inflows in the operating activities in the first half increased, compared with the previous first half.
2) Cash flow from investing activities
Net cash used in investing activities in the first half increased by ¥3,116 million to ¥77,200 million from ¥74,084 million in the previous first half. This was due mainly to an increase in cash outflows by acquisitions of businesses and acquisition of negotiable certificate of deposits and time deposits that exceeded an increase in cash inflow provided by sales and redemptions of available-for-sale-securities.
3) Cash flow from financing activities
Net cash used in financing activities in the first half decreased by ¥4,598 million to ¥8,481 million from ¥13,079 million in the previous first half. This was due mainly to a decrease in cash outflow by payments of long-term debt and an increase in cash inflow by reissuance of treasury stock though in cash inflow by increase in short-term debt decreased.

2. Summary of Accounting Policies
The accounts of Kyocera Corporation and its Japanese subsidiaries are generally maintained to conform to Japanese accounting practices. Adjustments, including the applicable income tax effects, which are not recorded in Kyocera Corporations books of account, have been made to the accompanying interim consolidated financial statements in order to present them in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.
(1) Basis of Consolidation and Accounting for Investments in Affiliated Companies
The interim consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Kyocera Corporation, its majority-owned subsidiaries and a variable interest entity for which Kyocera Corporation is a primarily beneficiary under the Financial Accounting Standard Board Interpretation No. 46 (revised 2003), Consolidation of Variable Interest Entities. The consolidated variable interest entity for which Kyocera Corporation is the primary beneficiary does not have a material effect on Kyoceras financial position and result of operations.
All significant inter-company transactions and accounts are eliminated. Investments in 20% to 50% owned companies and insignificant subsidiaries are accounted for by the equity method, whereby Kyocera includes in net income its equity in the earnings or losses of these companies.
(2) Revenue Recognition
Kyocera sells various types of products, including fine ceramic parts, semiconductor parts, and telecommunications equipment. Kyocera recognizes revenue upon completion of the earnings process, which occurs when products are shipped and delivered to the customer in accordance with the terms of an agreement of sale, there is a fixed or determinable selling price, title and risk of loss have been transferred, and collectibility is reasonably assured. These conditions are satisfied at the time of delivery to customers in domestic sales (FOB destination) and at the time of shipment (FOB shipping) for export sales.
- 26 -
Kyocera records an estimated sales return allowance at the time of sales based on its historical returns experience.
For after-service costs to be paid during warranty periods, Kyocera accrues a product warranty liability for claims under warranties relating to the products that have been sold. Kyocera records an estimated product warranty based on its historical repair experience.
Revenue from services, rental and others
In addition to the tangible products as discussed above, Kyocera also provides certain services, primarily financial services provided by Kyocera Leasing Co., until August 2006. Revenue from direct financing leases was recognized over the term of the lease, and amortization of unearned lease income was recognized using the interest method. Interest income on installment loans was recognized on an accrual basis. Interest income was no longer accrued at the time the collection of the interest was past due a year or more, or the collection of the principal was past due six months or more. The interest received from cash payments on impaired loans was recorded as income, unless the collectibility of the remaining investments was doubtful, in which case the cash receipt was recorded as collection of the principal.
(3) Cash and Cash Equivalents
Cash and cash equivalents include time deposits and certificates of deposit with original maturities of three months or less.
(4) Translation of Foreign Currencies
Assets and liabilities of consolidated foreign subsidiaries and affiliates accounted for by the equity method are translated into Japanese yen at the exchange rates in effect on the respective balance sheet dates. Operating accounts are translated at the average rates of exchange for the respective years. Translation adjustments result from the process of translating foreign currency financial statements into Japanese yen. These translation adjustments, which are not included in the determination of net income, are reported in other comprehensive income.
Assets and liabilities denominated in foreign currencies are translated at the exchange rates in effect at the respective balance sheet dates, and resulting transaction gains or losses are included in the determination of net income.
(5) Allowances for Doubtful Accounts
Kyocera maintains allowances for doubtful accounts related to both trade and finance receivables for estimated losses resulting from customers inability to make timely payments. Kyoceras estimates are based on various factors including the length of past due payments, historical experience and current business environments. In circumstances where it is aware of a specific customers inability to meet its financial obligations, a specific allowance against these amounts is provided considering the fair value of assets pledged by the customer as collateral.
- 27 -
Inventories are stated at the lower of cost or market. Cost is determined by the average method for approximately 61% , 65% and 62% of finished goods and work in process as well as approximately 23% , 20% and 21% of raw material and supplies at September 30, 2006, 2007 and March 31, 2007, respectively. The first-in, first-out method is applied to the other inventories. Kyocera recognizes estimated write-down of inventories for excess, slow-moving and obsolete inventories.
Certain investments in debt and equity securities are accounted for under the Statement of Financial Standards (SFAS) No. 115 Accounting for Certain Investments in Debt and Equity Securities. Securities classified as available-for-sale securities are recorded at the fair value, with unrealized gains and losses excluded from income and reported in other comprehensive income, net of taxes. Securities classified as held-to-maturity securities are recorded at amortized cost.
Kyocera evaluates whether the declines in fair value of debt and equity securities with readily determinable fair values are other-than-temporary. Other-than-temporary declines in fair value are recorded as a realized loss with a new cost basis. This evaluation is based mainly on the duration and the extent to which the fair value is less than cost, and the anticipated recoverability in fair value.
(8) Property, Plant and Equipment and Depreciation
Property, Plant and Equipment are recorded at cost less accumulated depreciation. Kyocera provides for depreciation of buildings, machinery and equipment over their estimated useful lives primarily on the declining balance method. The principal estimated useful lives used for computing depreciation are as follows:
The cost of maintenance, repairs and minor renewals is charged to expense in the year incurred; major renewals and betterments are capitalized.
When assets are sold or otherwise disposed of, the profits or losses thereon, computed on the basis of the difference between depreciated costs and proceeds, are credited or charged to income in the year of disposal, and costs and accumulated depreciation are removed from accounts.
Effective April 1, 2007, Kyocera Corporation and its domestic subsidiaries, as a result of taking the business situation into consideration, has adopted the 250 percent declining-balance depreciation method for buildings, machinery and equipment. Estimated useful lives and estimated salvage values were also changed in conjunction with this change. Under the new provisions of SFAS No. 154 Accounting Changes and Error Corrections, a replacement of APB Opinion No. 20 and FASB Statement No. 3, a change in depreciation method is treated as a change in estimate. The effect of the change in depreciation method will be reflected on a prospective basis beginning April 1, 2007, and prior period results will not be restated.
Kyocera Corporation and its domestic subsidiaries believe that the change from the declining-balance depreciation method to the 250 percent declining-balance depreciation method will better reflect future business situation and will provide a better matching of costs and revenues over the assets estimated useful lives. The change in depreciation methods caused a decrease in net income by ¥4,706 million, basic earnings per share of net income and diluted earnings per share of net income by ¥24.88 and ¥24.83 for the six months ended September 30, 2007, respectively.
- 28 -
(9) Goodwill and Other Intangible Assets
Kyocera has adopted SFAS No. 142. This requires that, rather than being amortized, goodwill and intangible assets with indefinite useful lives are tested for impairment at least annually, and also following any events and changes in circumstances that might lead to impairment. Intangible assets with definite useful lives are amortized over their respective estimated useful lives to their estimated residual values, and reviewed for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that their carrying amount may not be recoverable.
The principal estimated amortizations for intangible assets are as follows:
(10) Impairment of long-lived assets
Kyocera has adopted SFAS No. 144, Accounting for the Impairment or Disposal of Long-Lived Assets. This requires Kyocera to review its long-lived assets and intangible assets with definite useful lives for impairment periodically. Long-lived assets and intangible assets with definite useful lives are considered to be impaired when the expected undiscounted cash flow from the asset group is less than its carrying value. A loss on impairment is recognized based on the amount by which the carrying value exceeds the fair value of the long-lived assets and intangible assets with definite useful lives.
(11) Derivative Financial Instruments
Kyocera utilizes derivative financial instruments to manage its exposure resulting from fluctuations of foreign currencies and interest rates. These derivative financial instruments include foreign currency forward contracts and interest rate swaps. Kyocera does not hold or issue such derivative financial instruments for trading purposes.
Kyocera applies SFAS No. 133, Accounting for Derivative Instruments and Hedging Activities, as amended by SFAS No.138, Accounting for Certain Derivative Instruments and Certain Hedging Activities an Amendment of Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) Statement No.133. All derivatives are recorded as either assets or liabilities on the balance sheet and measured at fair value. Changes in the fair value of derivatives are charged in current earnings. However cash flow hedges which meet the criteria of SFAS No. 133 may qualify for hedge accounting treatment. Changes in the fair value of the effective portion of these hedge derivatives are deferred in other comprehensive income and charged to earnings when the underlying transaction being hedged occurs.
Kyocera designates certain foreign currency forward contracts and certain interest rate swaps as cash flow hedges under SFAS No. 133. Most of Kyoceras foreign currency forward contracts are entered into as hedges of existing foreign currency denominated assets and liabilities and as such do not qualify for hedge accounting. Accordingly, Kyocera records changes in fair value of these foreign currency forward contracts currently in earnings. It is expected that such changes will be offset by corresponding gains or losses on the underlying assets and liabilities.
Kyocera formally documents all relationships between hedging instruments and hedged items, as well as its risk management objective and strategy for undertaking various hedge transactions. This process includes all derivatives designated as cash flow hedge are linked to specific assets and liabilities on the balance sheet or forecasted transactions. Kyocera also formally assesses, both at the hedges inception and on an ongoing basis, whether the derivatives that are used in hedging transactions are highly effective in offsetting cash flows of hedged items. When it is determined that a derivative is not highly effective as a hedge or that it has ceased to be a highly effective hedge, Kyocera discontinues hedge accounting prospectively. When hedge accounting is discontinued, the derivative will continue to be carried on the balance sheet at its fair value, with deferred unrealized gains or losses charged immediately in current earnings.

(12) Stock-Based Compensation
Kyocera adopted SFAS No.123 (revised 2004) (SFAS No.123R), Share-Based Payment and recognized the cost resulting from share-based payment transactions in financial statements by adopting fair-value based measurement method in accordance with SFAS No.123R. Under the modified prospective method of adoption for SFAS No.123R, Kyocera recognized compensation cost which includes: (a) compensation cost for all stock options granted prior to, but not yet vested as of April1, 2006, and (b) compensation cost for all stock options granted or modified subsequent to April 1, 2006.
(13) Earnings and Cash Dividends per Share
Basic earnings per share is computed based on the weighted average number of shares outstanding during each period. Diluted earnings per share assumes the additional dilution that could occur if all stock options were exercised and resulted in the issuance of potential common stock.
Cash dividends per share are those declared with respect to the earnings for the respective periods for which dividends are proposed by the Board of Directors. Dividends are charged to retained earnings in the period in which they are paid.
(14) Research and Development Expenses and Advertising Expenses
Research and development expenses and advertising expenses are charged to operations as incurred.
(15) Use of Estimates
The preparation of consolidated financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the consolidated financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.
(16) Accounting Change
In June 2006, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued Interpretation No. 48, Accounting for Uncertainty in Income Taxes an interpretation of FASB statement No.109 (FIN 48) which clarifies the accounting for uncertainty in income taxes recognized in the financial statements in accordance with FASB Statement No. 109, Accounting for Income Taxes. FIN 48 was effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2006. Cumulative effect of applying FIN48, which was effective April 1, 2007, increased the opening balance of retained earnings by ¥3,968 million.
(17) Recently Issued Accounting Standards
In September 2006, the FASB issued SFAS No. 157, Fair Value Measurements. The purpose of SFAS No. 157 is to define fair value, establish a framework for measuring fair value and enhance disclosures about fair value measurements. The measurement and disclosure requirements are effective for the years beginning after November 15, 2007 and Kyocera will adopt SFAS No.157 effective April 1, 2008. Kyocera is currently evaluating the impact of adoption of SFAS No. 157 in its consolidated results of operations and financial position.

In February 2007, the FASB issued SFAS No.159, The Fair Value Option for Financial Assets and Financial Liabilities-Including an amendment of FASB Statement No.115.SFAS No.159 provides companies with an option to report selected financial assets and liabilities at fair value. Unrealized gains and losses on items for which the fair value option has been elected will be recognized in earnings. SFAS No.159 is effective for the years beginning after November 15, 2007 and Kyocera will adopt SFAS No.159 effective April 1, 2008. Kyocera is currently evaluating the impact of adoption of SFAS No.159 in its consolidated results of operations and financial position.
Certain reclassifications of previously reported amounts have been made to the consolidated statements of income, cash flows and corresponding footnote disclosures for the six months ended September 30, 2006 and for the year ended March 31, 2007 to conform to the current period presentation. Such reclassifications have no effect on net assets, net income and cash flows.

7. Derivative Financial Instruments and Hedging Activities
Kyoceras activities are exposed it to a variety of market risks, including the effects of changes in foreign currency exchange rates and interest rates. Approximately 60% of Kyoceras revenues are generated from overseas customers, which exposes Kyocera to foreign currency exchange rates fluctuations. These financial exposures are monitored and managed by Kyocera as an integral part of its overall risk management program. Kyoceras risk management program focuses on the unpredictability of financial markets and seeks to reduce the potentially adverse effects that the volatility of these markets may have on its operating results.
Kyocera maintains a foreign currency risk management strategy that uses derivative financial instruments, such as foreign currency forward contracts, to minimize the volatility in its cash flows caused by changes in foreign currency exchange rates. Movements in foreign currency exchange rates pose a risk to Kyoceras operations and competitive position, since exchange rates changes may affect the profitability, cash flows, and business and/or pricing strategies of non Japan-based competitors. These movements affect cross-border transactions that involve, but not limited to, direct export sales made in foreign currencies and raw material purchases incurred in foreign currencies.
Kyocera maintains an interest rate risk management strategy that may use derivative financial instruments, such as interest rate swaps, to minimize significant, unanticipated cash flow fluctuations caused by interest rate volatility.
By using derivative financial instruments to hedge exposures to changes in exchange rates and interest rates, Kyocera became exposed itself to credit risk. Credit risk is the failure of the counterparty to perform under the terms of the derivative contract. When the fair value of a derivative contract is positive, the counterparty owes Kyocera, which creates repayment risk for Kyocera. When the fair value of a derivative contract is negative, Kyocera owes the counterparty and, therefore, it does not possess repayment risk. Kyocera minimizes the credit (or repayment) risk in derivative financial instruments by (1) entering into transactions with creditworthy counterparties, (2) limiting the amount of exposure to each counterparty, and (3) monitoring the financial condition of its counterparties.
Cash Flow Hedges
Kyocera uses certain foreign currency forward contracts designated as cash flow hedges to protect against foreign currency exchange rate risks inherent in its forecasted transactions related to purchased and sales.
Kyocera charged deferred net losses of ¥8 million and net gains of ¥60 million and net losses of ¥8 million from accumulated other comprehensive income to foreign currency transaction gains (losses), net in the consolidated statements of income for the six months ended September 30, 2006 and 2007 and for the year ended March 31, 2007, as a result of the execution of the hedged transactions.
Also, Kyocera uses interest rate swaps mainly to convert a portion of its variable rate debt to fixed rates. Kyocera charged deferred net losses of ¥23 million from accumulated other comprehensive income to income from discontinued operations in the consolidated statements of income for the six months ended September 30, 2006 and for the year ended March 31, 2007. Kyocera charged deferred net losses of ¥3 million and ¥18 million from accumulated other comprehensive income to equity in earnings of affiliates in the consolidated statements of income for the six months ended September 30, 2007 and for the year ended March 31, 2007, respectively.
Kyocera recognized net losses of ¥58 million and net gains of ¥68 million and ¥63 million in accumulated other comprehensive income at September 30, 2006, 2007 and at March 31, 2007.

Kyoceras main direct foreign export sales and some import purchases are denominated in the customers and suppliers local currency, principally the U.S. dollar, Euro and STG. Kyocera purchases foreign currency forward contracts with terms normally lasting less than three months to protect against the adverse effects that exchange-rate fluctuations may have on foreign-currency-denominated trade receivables and payables. The gains and losses on both the derivatives and the foreign currency-denominated trade receivable and payables are recorded as foreign currency transaction gains (losses), net in the consolidated statements of income. Kyocera also utilizes indexed share options to decrease the adverse effects that price fluctuations of the holding securities may have on its consolidated results of operations.
Kyocera does not adopt hedge accounting for such derivatives.
The aggregate contract amounts of derivative financial instruments to which hedge accounting is not applied are as follows:
8. Commitments and Contingencies
At September 30, 2007, Kyocera had contractual obligations for the acquisition or construction of property, plant and equipment aggregating ¥27,113 million principally due within one year.
Kyocera is lessee under long-term operating leases primarily for office space and equipment. Future minimum lease commitments under non-cancelable operating leases at September 30, 2007 are as follows:
Kyocera has entered into material supply agreements for a significant portion of their anticipated material used in its operations. Under those agreements, during the six months ended September 30, 2007, Kyocera purchased ¥1,327 million and is obligated to purchase ¥183,119 million in total by the end of December 2019.
Kyocera guarantees the debt of employees, customers, an investee and an unconsolidated subsidiary. At September 30, 2007, the total amount of these guarantees was ¥603 million. The financial guarantees are made in the form of commitments and letters of awareness issued to financial institutions and generally obligate Kyocera to make payments in the event of default by the borrowers.
AVX has been named as a potentially responsible party (PRP) in state and federal administrative proceedings seeking contribution for costs associated with the correction and remediation of environmental conditions at various waste disposal and operating sites. To resolve AVXs liability at each of the sites at which AVX has been named a PRP, AVX has entered into various administrative orders and consent decrees with federal and state regulatory agencies. AVX has paid, or reserved for, all estimated amounts required under the terms of these orders and decrees corresponding to AVXs apportioned share of the liabilities.
In July 2007, AVX received a notification from the EPA indicating that remediation costs toward the environmental conditions at, New Bedford Harbor, Massachusetts through April 2007 (which remediation is ongoing) are approximately ¥34,730 million.
AVX has not yet undertaken discussions with the EPA and other parties who may bear responsibility for these costs regarding this matter and the monies spent. Accordingly, the potential impact of this matter on Kyoceras financial position, results of operations and cash flows cannot be determined at this time.
Kyocera is subject to various lawsuits and claims, which arise, in the ordinary course of business. Kyocera consults with legal counsel and assesses the likelihood of adverse outcome of these contingencies. Kyocera records liabilities for these contingencies when the likelihood of an adverse outcome is probable and the amount is reasonably estimated. However, based on the information available, management believes that damages, if any, resulting from these actions will not have a significant effect on Kyoceras consolidated results of operations and financial position.
