  1. Reasons for the difference and revision

Consolidated business results for the first half of the fiscal year ending December 2021 exceeded the corresponding indicators in the forecasts due primarily to the successful acquisition of staffing demand in excess of expectations because demand trends of client companies are experiencing a recovery in the mainstay "Short-Term Operational Support Business" and also because we acquired staffing demand from the public sector mainly related to the vaccination roll out. The Company made upward revision to full-year consolidated business forecast for the fiscal year ending December 2021, which was released on February 12, 2021.

The revised full-year business forecast for the fiscal year ending December 2021 takes into account the growth of each service in the "Short-Term Operational Support Business" driven by the acquisition of staffing demand from public sector projects mainly related to the vaccination roll out and of short-term staffing demand associated with the Tokyo Olympics, assuming that client company demand will be recovering in the second half moderately, heading into the final month of this fiscal year. In addition, the year-on-year decline in gross profit is due to in the more refined breakdown of tabulation elements used for cost of sales in BPO services.

Furthermore, the Company does not assume that Japan will issue a fifth state of emergency in the second half of the fiscal year ending December 2021. Note that actual earnings could differ largely from forecasts due to various factors.

  1. Reasons for interim dividend and revision to year-end dividend forecast

We maintain a policy of enhancing returns of profits to shareholders with a target of achieving total return ratio of 50%. Taking into account the above basic policy and the management environment surrounding the Company, we will pay an

interim dividend of 21 yen per share for the fiscal year ending December 2021, as in the dividend forecast announced on February 12, 2021.

As for the year-end dividend, based on the revision of the full-year consolidated business forecast, we will increase the dividend by 1 yen to 22 yen per share from the the forecast value of 21 yen announced on February 12, 2021. As a result, the annual dividend forecast for the current fiscal year combined with the interim dividend will increase by 2 yen from the previous term, and expected to be 43 yen per share.
