3. Reasons for Revisions

Our dividend forecast is based on our basic dividend policy that gives priority to enhancing equity efficiency and improving returns to our shareholders. Dividends are calculated to reflect performance in light of the overall business environment as we aim to maintain a stable and continuous distribution of profits.
Working in line with our basic policy and in consideration of performance projections for this fiscal year, we have lowered the interim dividend by 3 yen to make it 7 yen per share and lowered the year-end dividend by 3 yen to make it 7 yen per share.
We bought back convertible bonds worth 13,896 million yen in order to prevent the dilution of our shares resulting from the integration with MITSUMI ELECTRIC CO., LTD. that will occur through a share exchange scheduled to take place this fiscal year.

(Note) The forecasts contained in this press release are made based on the information available as of the date of the announcement and may differ from the forecasts due to a variety of factors in the days to come.
