2. Reasons for revision

The Company stands by a stable dividend policy and seeks to increase dividends in the way that reasonably reflects the Company’s earnings conditions. In line with this policy, the Company announced on October 27, 2006 to raise its target payout ratio from 10% to 15% of its consolidated net income.

Based on our consolidated results for the year ended March 31, 2008 announced today, the Company has decided to revise year-end dividend for the year ended March 31, 2008 from 25 yen per share to 30 yen per share. This results in an annual dividend of 55 yen per share, an increase of 10 yen per share from the year-ago level and payout ratio of 19.4%.
