  2. Reason for Revision of Dividend Forecast

    OMRON's policy on shareholder return is based primarily on securing internal capital resources for investments to promote growth and in turn increase corporate value, and returning any surplus to shareholders to the maximum extent possible, taking the level of free cash flow into consideration.

    On January 28, 2010, OMRON announced an upward adjustment to its consolidated performance forecast for fiscal 2009 along with its third quarter results. At the time of these announcements, the year-end dividend forecast was undecided.

    OMRON remains committed to stable and uninterrupted shareholder return. Considering the performance forecast for this fiscal year, the Company increases its year-end dividend to 10 yen per share, which together with the interim dividend of 7 yen per share paid on December 4, 2009, brings the total full year dividend payout to 17 yen per share.
