Note: The total amount of the interim dividend will consist of 25% of consolidated net income for the first half of the year (April-September), and that of the final dividend, of 25% of consolidated net income for the second half of the year (October-March).
However, notwithstanding this net income linked-benchmark, the Company will strive to maintain an reliable dividend of 10 yen per half-year.
