The Company's sales and operating income for the six months ended September
30, 2013 exceeded its financial guidance announced on July 23, 2013. Given the
positive steps forward, the Company seeks to reward its shareholders with an
interim dividend of 45 yen per share, an increase of 5 yen per share from the
amount previously announced. Together with the projected year-end dividend
remaining unchanged at 45 yen per share, the Company now expects to pay an
annual dividend of 90 yen per share for the year ending March 31, 2014.
