While operating income remained at the forecast level, ordinary income and net income for the year under review exceeded the forecast. With respect to year-end dividends for this term, the Company paid ¥12 per share according to the initial dividend forecasts announced on February 8, 2017, considering internal reserves necessary for operations in the next term and onwards, financial stability as well as the outlook for business expansion, while factoring in the business performance in this fiscal year.
