Announcement Regarding Downward Revision of Forecast for the Fiscal Year Ending March 31, 2009

TOKYO, Japan – November 5, 2008 – ORIX Corporation (TSE: 8591; NYSE: IX), a leading integrated financial services group, announced today that it has made the following revisions to its consolidated earnings forecasts (US GAAP) for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2009.

2. Reasons for Revision of Forecasts

The turmoil in international financial and capital markets has evolved into an unprecedented financial crisis, with the effects starting to ripple throughout the real economy. The Japanese economy has seen a decrease in export levels, due to a slowdown in the global economy and the foreign exchange effects of an appreciated yen, in addition to a drop in domestic demand as consumer sentiment deteriorates. The Japanese real estate market, having seen rapid expansion during recent years as a result of an inflow of direct foreign investment founded upon global excesses in liquidity, has been subject to a sudden tightening of available credit with a series of major bankruptcies sending tremors throughout the sector.

Due to the current operating environment, the initial ORIX Group operating revenue forecast has been marginally revised downward to Y1,120bn, however revenues are forecast to maintain similar levels as fiscal 2008, as ORIX revenues are mainly generated from client-based financial services.

Decreases in profits on investment securities, chiefly private equity investments, stocks and bonds, in addition to losses from equity-method affiliates and increases in provisions on loans to real estate companies, have lead to a revision of the initial net income forecast downward to Y105bn (down 38.1% compared to fiscal 2008).

From the outset, in response to the significant changes in the operating environment, ORIX has acted swiftly, adapting its corporate strategy during the latter half of the previous fiscal year to one that prioritizes soundness over growth. Profit forecasts for the previous fiscal year were rapidly revised; asset levels have been more stringently monitored, and fortified ALM and ERM initiatives have been implemented.

Increases in asset levels are being curbed, revised criteria for new transactions have been implemented, with the existing portfolio being thoroughly monitored, and collateral requirements consistently being reviewed in order to minimize losses. Furthermore, ALM has been fortified by maintaining the long-term debt ratio, and weekly ERM meetings are held to detect potential risks in a timely fashion and, where necessary, rapid responses are being executed Group-wide.

The depth and scope of the financial crisis has spread beyond initial expectations and maintenance of the present management strategy is judged to be the wisest course of action at this time.

3. Forecasts for the Interim Period Fiscal 2009

Revenue levels are forecast to be flat year on year, with a net income of Y55.3bn (down 39.9% year on year) resulting from a decline in profits from investment securities, including investments in private equity funds, stocks and bonds, an increase in provisions, and a decline in profits from equity-method affiliates as a result of the sale of Korea Life Insurance in September 2008.
