TDK Corporation (the "Company") hereby announces that at the meeting of the Board of Directors held today, the Company resolved that the projections for dividends per share of common stock for the fiscal year 2006 ending March 31, 2006, is revised as follows:
This resolution will be on an agenda to be resolved at the Ordinary General Meeting of Stockholders, which is scheduled to be held in late June 2006.
- Reasons for Revision:
Returning earnings to shareholders is one of the Company's highest management priorities, and the Company's fundamental policy is to devote its efforts to a stable increase in dividends.
