  4. Reasons for Revision of Projections for Consolidated Financial Results, Dividend of Surplus (Interim) and Year-end Dividend Projections
    In the first half of fiscal 2019, the Company posted increased sales of Passive Components, Rechargeable Batteries and other products for use in the automotive market, where demand for electronic components is growing as automobiles rely ever more heavily on electric and electronic equipment, and for use in the ICT market, where smartphones feature increasingly higher functionality. Based on the results achieved during the first half of the fiscal year 2019, we have made an upward revision to the previous projections as mentioned in “1. Revision of Projections for Consolidated Financial Results for FY March 2019” above.
    Furthermore, in light of the current situation, with regard to the interim dividend, the Company determined a further increase of 10 yen per share from the previous projections to 80 yen per share. With regard to the year-end dividend projections, the Company is planning a further increase of 10 yen per share from the previous projections to 80 yen per share. As a result, the total annual dividends for the fiscal year 2019 will become 160 yen per share, which is an increase of 30 yen per share compared with the previous fiscal year.

    (Note)
    The above projections are based on information currently available to the Company. Due to various factors, actual results may differ from such projections.
