2. Reason
The Company works to provide a stable return and actively return profits to shareholders, mainly in the form of a dividend, taking into consideration medium-term profit forecasts along with planned future investments, cash flow and other factors. The Company plans to distribute an interim dividend of ¥65 per share for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2013 (the 113th Business Term), half the amount of the annual dividend paid out in fiscal year 2012 (includes commemorative dividend), to provide a stable return to shareholders. The year-end dividend, however, has yet to be decided.
