Panasonic had projected a US$ 1B profit at the beginning of their fiscal year, wildly off from the US$ 9.6B loss recorded. Consensus of outside analysts was that they would have a ca US$ 300-400M loss, also wildly off. The restructuring costs were over US$ 4.4B while Panasonic had projected ca US$ 400M. These differences are so monumental that one questions the truthfulness of their projections from the start of the fiscal year. The outside analysts could well have been off because of their dependence on the accuracy of the information Panasonic had previously reported.
