2.   Reasons for the distribution of retained earnings

The Company believes that the provision of dividends and the enhancement of corporate value are important ways to return profits to its shareholders. The Company aims to achieve a consolidated payout ratio of more than 30% and will endeavor to further increase the level of dividends. The Company also intends to use retained earnings for investments focused on business areas with good future prospects in order to continue to reinforce Konami Group's growth potential and competitiveness.

In light of this policy and the positive business performance, a dividend of 38 yen per share was approved as a year-end dividend for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2018, which was increased by 3 yen per share from the previous dividend forecast announced on January 31, 2018. As a result, including the distributed interim dividend of 30 yen per share, dividends on an annual basis will be 68 yen per share.
