Financial Summary for 1H/FY2010

Dividend Payments

  • Finally, I would like to comment on dividend payments.
  • For fiscal 2010, as we announced in May, we expect a level of 29 yen per share per annum.
  • Operating income for the first half of the current fiscal year exceeded the initial forecast. However, the current severe business environment will likely persist while the business results of our customers are affected by the progress of the appreciation of yen.
  • We will certainly continue to make utmost efforts to maximize medium- to long-term shareholder returns, while sustaining financial stability and soundness and securing the investments needed for further growth mainly in our digital and global operations. We would appreciate your understanding of the situation that we are now facing.
  • Thank you very much for your time.
