USJ Co., Ltd. Reports Third Quarter Net Income Increases 63.6%; Shareholders' Benefit Plan Launched

Tokyo, Feb 14, 2008 - (JCN Newswire) - USJ Co., Ltd. (TSE: 2142), the operating company of Universal Studios Japan theme park, announced the financial results for the nine-month period ending December 31, 2007 and launched a Shareholders' Benefit Plan.

Throughout the first three quarters of the fiscal year, the Company's attendance was driven by the continued popularity of the sensational Hollywood Dream The Ride roller coaster which opened in March 2007, and its first family-oriented carousel Magical Oz-Go-Round which opened in July 2007. In addition special events such as the summer-time water and character parade, Halloween and Christmas, continued to drive attendance.

As a result, the Company achieved sales of JPY 57,751 million (up 2.9% from the same period of the previous year), operating income of JPY 8,844 million (up 20.8%), ordinary income of JPY 8,054 million (up 34.5%), and net income of JPY 7,989 million (up 63.6%).

The Company is not currently modifying its forecast for the full year announced on November 8, 2007, considering seasonality factors which may affect our results in the fourth quarter.

In addition, the Company is announcing a Shareholders' Benefit Plan in its continued commitment to return value to its shareholders. Shareholders who hold 10 shares and over will be provided with complimentary pass tickets (one-day Studio Pass) based on a sliding scale, and shareholders who hold less than 10 shares will be provided discount coupons for pass tickets based on a sliding scale. The Shareholders' Benefit Plan is designed to attract and retain long-term shareholders, and to provide opportunities for these shareholders to be better acquainted with the theme park and the Company's business.
