2. Rationale

In the first half of fiscal 2008, Fujitsu was negatively impacted by global financial turmoil and an economic slowdown. However, the company maintains a policy of paying stable dividends on an ongoing basis. The company therefore has decided to pay an interim dividend of 5 yen per share, an increase of 2 yen compared with the first half of fiscal 2007 and the same level as the year-end dividend for fiscal 2007.
