2. Reason
In the recent business forecast, announced on November 11th, 2010, consolidated sales are 98,000 million yen and net income are 9,500 million yen respectively. Applying our dividend policy on the forecast, dividend payment per share will be 52 yen for full year of fiscal 2010. Thus, the dividend payment whose base date is September 30, 2010 will be 25 yen per share.

Dividend Policy
To improve the transparency of the Company's stance prioritizing the return of profits to shareholders, the dividend payout ratio is set at 20% of the consolidated net income. However, notwithstanding this net income linked-benchmark, the Company will strive to maintain an annual dividend payment of not less than 20 yen per share as a stable base dividend.
The Company amended its dividend policy on May 12, 2008 to increase the dividend payment ratio in accordance with the achieved income performance; if the consolidated ordinary income margin exceeds 20%, averaged over four years, the dividend payout will be increased from 20% to 24%.
