About Quarterly Dividends
The dividend for the third quarter is ¥8 per share. Commencement dates for dividend payments are as follows:
(If date falls on a Saturday or Sunday, then the immediately succeeding business day)
We request receipt of dividend payments via bank account transfer. (The dividend will be remitted on the dividend payment commencement date into your bank or post office savings account, thereby eliminating the chance of your forgetting to receive it.) The necessary application form (Remittance Instruction Form) has been enclosed for your convenience.
If you choose to receive your dividend in cash, or to make deposit in cash for additional holdings, the financial institution will verify your identity, pursuant to the Identify Confirmation Law.
