SMM carried out the consolidation of shares at the ratio of 2 shares to 1 share on October 1, 2017. As the second quarter-end dividend for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2018 was paid based on the number of shares prior to the consolidation of shares, the second quarter-end dividend per share is shown in the amount prior to the consolidation of shares. The year-end dividend per share for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2018 is shown in the amount based on the consolidation of shares and the full-year dividend is shown as “dash” in the table above, as it would cause misunderstanding in summing up the amounts. The full-year dividend per share calculated on a post-consolidation of share basis is ¥100 for the year ended March 31, 2018.
