[Reason for revisions]

Consolidated ordinary profit ended with an upturn from the previous announcement because of improved equity in earnings of affiliates resulted from a re-evaluation of tax effect accounting due to the tax system revision for some equity-method affiliated companies, as well as an increased number of FPSO (Floating Production Storage and Offloading System) operating days for the Offshore Business, steady performance of the tanker market, and decreased temporary transitional costs related to the integration of the containership business.

[Reason for revision]

We use 20% as a guideline for the dividend payout ratio, and pay dividends in conjunction with

Consolidated performance. Based on the full-year business results for FY2018, we consider the overall situations such as shareholder return and our internal capital reserves and plan to pay a year-end dividend of ¥25 per share, which was ¥20 per share at the previous announcement. As a result, we plan to pay ¥45 per share for the full year.
