* Because the Lion Group is voluntarily applying International Financial Reporting Standard (IFRS) in its accounting from the first quarter of fiscal 2018 onward, the calculation of financial forecasts was made using IFRS while the calculation of the percentage change from figures recorded for the corresponding period of the previous year used that previous year's figures recalculated applying IFRS.

* Core operating income: An earnings indicator the Company uses to measure regular business performance by subtracting selling, general and administrative expenses from gross revenues.
