* A 10-for-1 split of the Company’s common stock is scheduled to take effect on October 1, 2022. Dividends for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2023 are paid twice per year, following the end of the second quarter and at the fiscal year-end, in accordance with our Dividend Policy. The annual dividend per share remains undecided due to the interim dividend being calculated based on the number of common shares pre-split and year-end dividend being calculated post-split. The interim dividend and the year-end dividend forecast will be announced at the timing of the 2023 fiscal year second quarter earnings release.

Please see Key Figures per Share in Financial Highlights for the details about the previous dividends.
