Sale Price

6,186.84 yen per share

Value of Sale

148,484,160,000 yen

Impact on FY2003 Financial Results

The above-mentioned sale of shares is expected to result in an extraordinary profit of approximately 83.1 billion yen on a consolidated basis. The impact on consolidated net income is projected to be an increase of about 22.9 billion yen. On an unconsolidated basis, the transaction is expected to result in an extraordinary profit of approximately 148.2 billion yen and an increase in net income of about 88.0 billion yen.

As a result of this transaction, Fujitsu at this time is revising only the unconsolidated earnings projections it issued at the time of its FY2003 first half financial results announcement on October 29, 2003.

With respect to its consolidated earnings projections for the current fiscal year, the extraordinary profit generated from the above-mentioned sale of shares will serve to offset the extraordinary losses stemming from restructuring and other charges posted in the first half. There will be a reduction in earnings
from minority interests in the second half, as FANUC's results will no longer be accounted for by the equity method. With these and other factors taken into consideration, Fujitsu's consolidated earnings projections remain unchanged.

On an unconsolidated basis, as a result of the extraordinary profit generated from the above-mentioned sale and other factors, Fujitsu has revised its forecast for net income from 50 billion yen to 120 billion yen.
