2. Reason

The Company positions shareholder returns as an important managerial issue and endeavors to make stable and continuous dividend payments and to flexibly repurchase its shares to achieve a total return ratio of 30–50 percent, while comprehensively considering factors such as its performance, investment plans, and business environment each fiscal year.
  The Company has determined to pay a final dividend of ¥58 per share for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2024, revising upward its latest ordinary dividend payment forecast of ¥38 per share by ¥10 to ¥48 given the better-than-projected consolidated financial results for the fiscal year and other reasons, and adding the 70th commemorative dividend of ¥10 (as announced on November 2, 2023).
  This will bring the Company’s annual dividend per share to ¥106 including an interim dividend per share of ¥48 which the Company has already paid.
