3. Reason for Differences and Revision
Our 1H19 revenue exceeded our target, mainly due to steady accumulation of recurring revenues and recognition of systems construction revenues (one-time revenue) along with construction progresses. Gross profit for both network services and systems integration services exceeded our respective targets mainly because of stronger than expected revenue growth. As a result, operating profit, profit before tax and profit for the period attributable to owners of the parent exceeded our financial targets which was announced on May 14, 2019.


Considering the results of revenue and operating profit for 1H19, we revised financial targets for FY2019 operating profit, profit before tax and profit for the year attributable to owners of the parent.
