  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, taking the level of free cash flow into consideration. When determining dividends, the Company targets a payout ratio of 20% or higher, with 2% DOE as a reference indicator.

    Following the favorable consolidated financial results for the first and second quarters of fiscal 2010 announced today, the Company has decided to make an upward revision to the interim dividend to 14.00 yen per share, up 4.00 yen from the initial forecast.

    Expecting current economic uncertainty to continue, the year-end dividend forecast remains undecided. The Company plans to announce the figure by April 2011 at the latest.

    The expected dividends are as follows:
