  1. Reasons for revision

    The dramatic economic slowdown that began in the US at the end of 2000 is becoming a global phenomenon that has undermined worldwide demand for IT. Toshiba's revised forecasts reflect this, particularly lower demand electronic components for digital devices. Accordingly, both consolidated and non-consolidated sales and profit targets have been significantly revised downward against the original forecasts. The company also anticipates a 120 billion yen restructuring charge in its consolidated basis.

  2. Planned Interim dividend for 1H/FY2001

    In accordance with the revisions described above, the board of Toshiba today decided to cancel its interim dividend, which had been set at 5 yen per share, the level for the same term of the previous year. The dividend payment for the end of the current fiscal year, which was also 5 yen per share for the last fiscal year, is yet to be decided.
