2. Rationale

SBG had not determined the dividend forecast for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2021 in view of the uncertainty of market trends and other factors associated with the COVID-19 pandemic. However, in considering the business environment and shareholders’ expectations for stable dividends, the Board of Directors of SBG resolved to pay a year-end dividend of JPY 22 per share, the same amount as the previous fiscal year, as well as an interim dividend.
