2. Reasons for revision

The demand within China is picking up as the country recovered quickly from the COVID-19 pandemic. In particular, the EV/xEV market is expanding, as well as the renewable energy technology, i.e., solar photovoltaic installations etc. have registered a fast growth. As vaccination rates are increasing, economies in Europe and America have gradually reopened with the lifting of restrictions. This has led to a firm growth of sales of new vehicles, especially EV/xEV etc., supported by initiatives of the countries towards achieving carbon-neutrality, which are giving a rise in demand for electronic components.

Considering the performance in the first half of 2021 under these circumstances, the Company decided to revise the FY2021 consolidated full-year earnings forecast.

However, matters of concern remain, such as the increases in the price of raw materials e.g., copper and plastics that are affecting the product prices of the Company, as well as the adjustments of the production by the group companies’ customers who are affected by the shortage of semiconductors.

The forecast of dividends per share remains unchanged, and it is the Company’s policy to pay a year-end dividend to deliver an annual dividend amount at a consolidated dividend payout ratio of 25% to 30%.
