16. Segment Information

(1) Overview of reportable segment

 The Company's business segment consists of companies from which separated financial information can be obtained in order for the Board of Managing Directors and the Board of Directors to decide the distribution of management resources and evaluate performance. Of these, the "Electricity" segment that accounts for the major portion of our whole business is defined as the reportable segment, and other businesses are classified as "Others."
 In the "Electricity" segment, the Company supplies electricity to the three prefectures in the Hokuriku region [Toyama, Ishikawa and Fukui (partly excluded)] and part of Gifu prefecture, and the Nihonkai Power Generating supplies electricity to the Company on a wholesale basis.

(2) Accounting policies of each reportable segment

 The accounting policies of the segments are substantially the same as described in the Summary of Siginificant Accounting Policies. Segment performance is evaluated based on operating income or loss. Intersegment sales are arm's length transaction.

(Application of Accounting Standard and other regulations for Business Combination)

  The Company has applied the "Accounting Standard for Business Combination" Accounting Standards Board of Japan Statement No.21, September 13, 2013, the "Accounting Standard for Consolidated Financial Statements" (Accounting Standards Board of Japan Statement No.22, September 13, 2013), the "Accounting Standard for Business Divestitures" (Accounting Standards Board of Japan Statement No.7, September 13, 2013), effective from the current consolidated fiscal year. Under the adopted accounting standards, the difference associated with the changes in the Company's ownership interest in subsidiaries in the case of subsidiaries under ongoing control of the Company recorded as capital surplus, and acquisition-related costs are recorded as expense for the consolidated fiscal year in which they are incurred. Also, as for business combination occurred on or after the beginning of the current consolidated fiscal year, the accounting method was changed to reflect the adjustments of the provisional allocation of acquisition costs for a business combination shall be reflected in the consolidated financial statements for the fiscal year in which the business combination occurred. In addition, the presentation for "Net income" and other related items was changed and "Minority interests" was changed to "Non-controlling interests." The consolidated financial statements for the previous consolidated fiscal year have been reclassified to reflect these changes in presentation. In consolidated cash flow statement for the current consolidated fiscal year, cash flows proceeds from purchase or sales of shares of subsidiaries resulting in scope of consolidation are mentioned in the category "cash flows from financing activities." In accordance with the transitional treatment set forth in Article 58-2 (4) of the Accounting Standard for Business Combination, Article 44-5 (4) of the Accounting Standard for Consolidated Financial Statements and Article 57-4 (4) of Accounting Standard for Business Divestiture, these standards have been applying prospectively from the beginning of the current consolidated fiscal year. For reference, the effect of these changes is insignificant.
