Reason for financial forecast revision
Consistent with the increase in semiconductor demand due to expanding applications of information and communication technologies such as IoT, AI, 5G, the market for semiconductor production equipment is continuing to expand. Based on the most recent trends in facilities investments by our customers and the most recent trends in results, we would like to amend the consolidated results projections for the full year announced on October 29, 2020 as follows.
Note: The financial forecasts and estimates stated in this announcement are based on certain assumptions judged to be reasonable by TEL in light of information currently available concerning economic conditions in Japan and overseas, fluctuations in foreign exchange rates, and other factors that may have an impact on performance. TEL does not promise that the forecasts or estimates will be accurate.
They are therefore susceptible to the impact of many uncertainties, including market conditions, competition, the launching of new products (and their success or failure), and global conditions in the semiconductor related industry. Consequently, actual sales and profits may differ substantially from the projections stated in this announcement.
2. Dividends Forecast Revision

Results for the year
The dividend policy of TEL is to link dividend payments to business performance on an ongoing basis. Its basic policy for returning profits to shareholders is to maintain a payout ratio of around 50% based on consolidated net income attributable to owners of parent. As described above, in conjunction with the revision of our consolidated forecasts, TEL has also revised our annual dividends forecast from 675 yen per share to 740 yen. (Interim dividends : 360 yen, Year-end dividends : 380 yen)
