Message from the President & CEO

To Our Shareholders,

Jun Karube President and CEO

I am happy to report that our consolidated profit attributable to owners of the parent totaled ¥102.5 billion—the highest ever—in the fiscal year ended March 31, 2017. Underlying our record net earnings were operating income of ¥146.6 billion on net sales of ¥7,919.6 billion.

We are approved the proposed a year-end dividend of ¥39 per share at the General Meeting of Shareholders. That, together with the interim dividend of ¥31 per share, would result in an aggregate annual dividend of ¥70—¥8 more than the aggregate annual dividend for the previous year.
