2. Reason

The Company’s basic policy for the return of profits to shareholders is to deliver dividends in consideration of a consolidated dividend payout ratio (25% to 30%) with top priority on the profit distribution through dividends.

There is no prospect of the financial impact of the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) to the FY2020 net income currently, however, since a severe impact is expected, we have regrettably decided not to pay first quarter dividends.
