Financial Summary for FY2011
and Outlook for FY2012


  • Finally, I would like to comment on dividend payments.
  • As the year-end dividend for fiscal 2011 was 16.0 yen per share and the interim dividend was 15.0 yen per share, the total dividend was 31.0 yen per share per annum.
  • The dividend for fiscal 2012 is expected to be 16.0 yen per share for both interim and year-end. Accordingly, we expect a total dividend of 32.0 yen per share per annum.
  • Since we consider "a sustainable and stable dividend" to be the basis of our shareholder returns policy, we will certainly continue to make utmost efforts to maximize shareholder returns through medium- to long-term growth of the business while sustaining financial stability and soundness and securing the investments needed for further growth mainly in our digital and global operations. 
  • This concludes my presentation. Thank you very much for your time.
