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.

In fiscal 2010, operating income increased year on year owing to the effect of structural reforms in the LSI device business and decrease in the amortization of goodwill. This was despite the impact of a lagging recovery in demand for domestic ICT investments and deteriorating performance in certain overseas service business projects. Net income declined from the previous fiscal year due to an extraordinary loss posted as a result of the March 11 Tohoku earthquake and because of the previous fiscal year's proceeds from the sale of investment securities. Nonetheless, the company's financial condition is steadily improving. As a result, the company plans to pay a year-end dividend of 5 yen per share, the amount announced at the beginning of the fiscal year. Including the interim dividend of 5 yen per share, the annual dividend is 10 yen per share. This represents the first time since fiscal 2000 that Fujitsu plans to pay annual dividends of 10 yen per share.

Dividend payment plans for fiscal 2011 have not yet been determined. This is because conditions that may impact the company's consolidated performance—uncertainties over raw materials and component procurement, as well as ICT investments in Japan—make a rational assessment impossible at this time. Fujitsu will make available dividend payment plans as soon as forecast disclosure becomes possible.
