To All Persons Concerned,
Notice Concerning Stock Split
Kyocera Corporation (hereafter the Company) hereby announces that at the meeting of its Board of Directors held on August 28, 2013, a resolution was adopted to undertake a stock split.
The details are as follows.
1. Purpose of Stock Split
The stock split will be undertaken with the aim of increasing the liquidity of the Companys stock and expanding its investor base through a reduction in the price of share-trading units.
2. Outline of Stock Split
(1) Method of stock split
The record date of the stock split will be Monday, September 30, 2013; and it will consist of a split at the ratio of 2 for 1 of all common shares held by shareholders whose names appear or are recorded in the Registry of Shareholders as of the end of the record date.
(2) Increase in shares resulting from stock split
(1) Changes in capital
The stock split will not result in any change in capital.
On April 25, 2013, the Company announced an annual dividend forecast of 160 yen per share for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2014. Because the stock split will take place as of October 1, 2013, the Companys interim dividend will be paid in respect of its shares prior to the stock split, while its year-end dividend will be paid in respect of its shares after the stock split. No specific amount has yet been determined for either of such dividends. The Company will make a prompt announcement upon such determination.
