Financial Summary for FY2009
and Outlook for FY2010

Dividend Payments

  • Finally, I would like to comment on dividend payments.
  • For fiscal 2009, as we announced last month, we have increased the year-end dividend from 12.5 yen per share to 14.5 yen per share. Consequently, the annual dividend per share was revised to 27 yen.
  • For fiscal 2010, we expect a level of 29 yen per share per annum (up 2 yen from the previous year)-14.5 yen for both interim and year-end.
  • We will certainly continue to make utmost efforts to maximize medium- to long-term shareholder returns, while sustaining financial stability and soundness and securing funds for the investments needed for further growth. We would appreciate your understanding of the situation that we are now facing.
  • Thank you very much for your time.
