Revenue will be based on strong sales expansions in focus areas.

Operating income will be based on the extent of growth, as well as disciplined control of fixed costs and further strengthening of our ability to respond to fluctuations. The annual dividend for the concluded fiscal year is 185 yen, a 5 yen increase from the previous announcement, and the forecast for the next fiscal year is 190 yen, a 5 yen increase from the previous year.
