Japan's economy expanded 0.2 percent in the last three months of 2014 from the previous quarter, revised down from a preliminary 0.3 percent expansion due to slower growth in capital spending and private consumption.
Capital spending rose 0.8 percent in October-December, revised down from an initial 1.3 percent increase. Private consumption rose 0.4 percent during the quarter, slower than an initial estimate of 0.5 percent growth.
The revised gross domestic product figure translated into annualised growth of 0.7 percent, against an initial reading of 1.0 percent.
