   2.    Reasons 

For the fiscal year ended March 31, 2021, we had not been able to reasonably calculate the impact on our projected consolidated results under the circumstances that we could not predict when the outbreak settles down and consumption trend recovers. Therefore, the projected consolidated results had not been determined. As for the dividend forecast for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2021, the dividend on an annual basis for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2021 was intended to be at least the same amount as the previous fiscal year ended March 31, 2020 and we intended to recalculate the dividend on an annual basis to achieve a consolidated payout ratio of more than 30 % at the time when the consolidated earnings forecast for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2021 was able to become reasonably determined.

As for the consolidated results for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2021, revenues of some business segments were impacted from temporal closures to prevent the coronavirus outbreak as well as world-wide economic slowdown. However, strong performance of products and services in the Digital Entertainment business including mobile games, computer and video games and card games led to increase in revenues and profits.

As a result of re-calculation of payment of dividend to achieve a consolidated payout ratio of more than 30 % based on the consolidated results for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2021, the year-end dividend will be 50.50 yen per share and thus the dividends on an annual basis will be 73.00 yen per share (an increase of 28.00 yen per share from the previous fiscal year and forecast) including the distributed interim dividend (22.50 yen per share).
