Consolidated operating income for the first 9 months of fiscal 2013 decreased by 30% compared to the same period of the previous fiscal year to 113.2 billion yen, mainly due to lower profits in the Industrial Automation Systems, Electronic Devices and Home Appliances segments. Income before income taxes decreased by 84% compared to the same period of the previous fiscal year to 25.7 billion yen largely as a result of recording 75.7 billion yen as a non-operating expense for refund of overcharged expenses to certain parties in the electronic systems business. Net income attributable to Mitsubishi Electric Corporation for the first 9 months of fiscal 2013 decreased by 40% compared to the same period of the previous fiscal year to 49.1 billion yen due to a decrease in tax expenses.
