Please note that 2 ADSs represent 1 ordinary share, and therefore the ADS dividend amount is ½ of the ordinary share amount. The final US Dollar dividend amount will only become known at the timing of payment when our ADS Depositary, the Bank of New York Mellon, exchanges the dividends from Japanese Yen to US Dollars for ADS holders. The final USD amount will be stated on the Bank of New York Mellon’s website.
