Chubu Electric Power Co.,Inc.

Today, Chubu Electric Power have revised its “Dividend forecasts for FY2018” and “The policy on shareholder return”.

Chubu Electric Power set a management target of “achieving 150 billion yen or more in consolidated ordinary income by FY2018” in March 2016. We have been working on various initiatives as a group to achieve this goal ever since, and as a result, our prospective consolidated ordinary income for FY2018 (excluded time-lag effect) is expected to be approximately 160 billion yen, and to be exceed this target.

We have also set a new management target of “achieving 170 billion yen or more in consolidated ordinary income for FY2021” as a milestone on the path to achieving the “Chubu Electric Power Group Management Vision”. We have put together a concrete action plan to achieve this target as “Initiatives to address management challenges”. Our group transfer to a business model that separates power generation from sales, and aim to grow into a stronger corporate group through autonomous efforts in each business.

In light of these status of income, financial condition, and management environment, we have revised our “Dividend forecasts for FY2018” and “The policy on shareholder return” as follows.
