With regard to the use of retained earnings, we are planning to make an investment in R&D and manufacturing facilities to develop new innovative products for our further business progress from a mid-term point of view.

As for dividend as of September 2018, we intend to maintain 50% of dividend payout ratio with the expected amount of Yen 88 per share, increasing Yen 3 comparison with the previous fiscal year.
