As a result, projected net income will be $238.1 million, or 25 billion yen, which is $19.1 million, or 2 billion yen, higher than the previous forecast. For fiscal 2003, the cosmetics company earned consolidated net income of $233.3 million, or 24.5 billion yen. Dollar figures were converted at current exchange rate.
