To our shareholders and investors,
Ikuo Higashi, President
Honyaku Center Inc.

Business results for 3Q of FY2013

We would like to express our sincere gratitude to all shareholders and investors for their continued warm support and encouragement of the Honyaku Center Group. We are praying from the bottom of our hearts for the recovery of the areas affected by the Great East Japan Earthquake.

On February 6, the Honyaku Center Group announced its business results for the third quarter of fiscal 2013.

The Group posted net sales of 6,481 million yen for the third quarter of fiscal 2013 (up 25.5% year-on-year), with operating income at 259 million yen (up 2.8%), ordinary income at 257 million yen (up 1.3%) and net income at 114 million yen (up 2.2%). The increase in sales is mainly attributable to the inclusion of the ISS Group in the scope of consolidation in September 2012. The business performance of ISS, INC. continued to be strong primarily because it was entrusted with the entire operations of the Fifth Tokyo International Conference on African Development (TICAD V). Furthermore, the localization/manual business acquired by Honyaku Center from International Translation And Services Corp. in June 2013 remained robust. We believe that such expansion into business fields in which Honyaku Center was not previously engaged contributed to the steady enhancement of its comprehensive capability.

Along with its business results for the third quarter under review, the Group announced the revision of its consolidated earnings forecast for fiscal 2013. Net sales are expected to remain almost unchanged from the initial projections. In terms of profit, however, the sales ratio of the translation business, which is highly profitable, to the Group's total sales, decreased from the initial projections.

Although fiscal 2013 is drawing to an end, we will make a group-wide effort to recover as much as we can. For fiscal 2014, the final year of the second medium-term business plan, we will further strengthen our marketing capability.

The Group will expand the scope of our language services, while capturing translation and interpretation needs and winning as many orders resulting from such needs as possible. We sincerely hope that you have gained an understanding of our businesses and corporate principles, and we humbly ask for your continued support and encouragement going forward.

February 2014

Ikuo Higashi, President
