For the year ending March 31, 2016, while the Group expects to post net income (net income attributable to shareholders of parent company) for the year ending March 31, 2016, the Group intends to forgo year-end dividend payments for this period in order to build a solid profitable financial base that can stably record net income moving forward. The Group will work toward improved results and stable performance that will allow dividends to be reinstated at the earliest possible date.
