Net sales in the fiscal year ended October 2012 were roughly on a par with the forecast.

(2) Reasons for the Revision
  The Company places priority on enhancing its corporate value through earnings growth. Its basic policy under this concept is to secure internal reserves as future investment funds and to return surplus funds to shareholders, primarily in the form of dividends.
Under this basic policy, the Company has decided to revise its year-end dividend forecast for the fiscal year ended October 2012 up five yen, to 35 yen per share.
The Company will propose the dividend at the 28th annual meeting of shareholders to be held on January 29, 2013.
