  2. Rationale for Determination of Dividend

    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. When determining dividends, the Company takes the level of free cash flow, the payout ratio and the DOE target into consideration.

    Based on past dividends as well as the first half consolidated financial results and full year forecast for fiscal 2009 announced today, OMRON has decided to pay an interim dividend of 7.00 yen per share. Due to uncertainty regarding the economic environment, the year-end dividend remains undecided, but the Company plans to announce it by April 2010 at the latest.

    The expected dividends are as follows:
