2. Reason

To improve the transparency of the Company's stance prioritizing the return of profits to shareholders, the dividend payout ratio is set at 25% of consolidated net income for each half year period.
Based on the above policy, the Company intends to pay 83 yen per share as part of the interim dividend for the half ended September 30, 2016.

Dividend Policy
Adopting a performance–linked dividend policy and aiming at giving clearer priority to shareholder returns, our target dividend payout ratio is 25% of the consolidated half-yearly net income.
There will be interim and final dividends, each of which will be equivalent to 25% of the half-yearly consolidated net income.
Irrespective of the level of income, we will maintain a reliable dividend of ¥10 per half-year. This means that the minimum yearly dividend will be ¥20.The ¥20 payout stipulated in our stable dividend policy may be reviewed if there are consolidated net losses in three consecutive years.
Except when there is a loss, if the year-end balance of cash and deposits after payment of dividends and income taxes is greater than projected funding requirements for the acquisition of technology resources (such as through patent purchases and investment in venture businesses, facility expansion, the retirement of interest-bearing debt and other purposes), one-third of that surplus will be added to dividends.
