Note:

  • New policy*: The Company and its domestic consolidated subsidiaries had formerly recognized revenue mainly on a shipping basis. However, starting from the fiscal year 2016, the Company and its domestic consolidated subsidiaries have changed to revenue recognition method on a completion date of installation or a delivery date basis under the terms and conditions of contracts.
    Retrospective restatement is not applied for before fiscal 2015, but 2015.12(New policy) are restated numbers for reference.
     
  • Since 2013, we have changed from dividend policy targeting at 30% of nonconsolidated net income to the total shareholder return, combined with the amount of dividend payments and share buybacks, targeting at 30% of consolidated net income. In fiscal 2012, we paid an annual dividend of 50 yen per share, including the commemorative dividend of 10 yen.
