Fujitsu Limited announced that its Board of Directors decided today to increase the planned dividends to be paid from retained earnings to shareholders of record on March 31, 2010, as indicated below.

2. Reason

As part of Fujitsu’s basic policy on dividends, a portion of retained earnings is paid to shareholders to provide a stable return, and a portion is retained by the company to strengthen its financial base and support new business development opportunities that will result in improved long-term performance.

For fiscal 2009, the company’s core business continued to suffer from the effects of the economic downturn stemming from financial crisis that occurred in the latter half of fiscal 2008. However, on both a consolidated and unconsolidated basis, the company recorded a significant gain from the sale of shares of FANUC Ltd. As a result, the company plans to pay a year-end dividend of 5 yen per share, 2 yen more per share than the year-end dividend for fiscal 2008 and the forecast for fiscal 2009 announced at the beginning of the fiscal year. Combined with the interim dividend of 3 yen, the 8 yen per share dividend for fiscal 2009 is the same level as the previous fiscal year.

Fujitsu plans to continue its policy of paying dividends twice a year, based on financial results, at the half-year and year-end. The company plans to pay an annual dividend of 10 yen per share (5 yen as an interim dividend) for fiscal 2010, ending March 31, 2011.
