The acquisition of Amdahl, coupled with falling demand and prices in PCs and memory, have forced Fujitsu to revise its profit forecast - it will make less than a quarter of the amount it expected.
The reorganisation of Amdahl, which it bought in September, also will also affect results for its year to 31 March because the costs involved are greater than Fujitsu expected.
The Japanese PC, chip, server, memory and services conglomerate, which owns Fujitsu-ICL Computers, said its profit will be around Yen10 billion, far lower than the Yen46 billion it had predicted.
The company blamed Japanese demand for PCs and memory but said worldwide factors, including currency fluctuations, have forced down its financial projections.
Fujitsu's 400 technology-related companies made Yen46.1 billion profit in its 1997, on turnover of Yen4.5 trillion. Its revised forecast for 1998 turnover is Yen5.1 trillion, down from the Yen10 trillion it predicted.
