Notice Regarding Differences between Financial Targets and Actual Results for the First Half of the Fiscal Year Ending March 2020 and Revision of the Full-Year Financial Targets

[English Translation]TOKYO, Nov. 08, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Internet Initiative Japan Inc. (“IIJ”, TSE1: 3774) announced differences between financial targets for the first half of the fiscal year ending March 31, 2020 (“1H19”, from April 1, 2019 to September 30, 2019), announced on May 14, 2019, and its actual results for 1H19. IIJ also announced revision of the full-year (“FY2019”, from April 1, 2019 to March 31, 2020) financial targets.
The dividend targets remain unchanged from what we announced on May 14, 2019: annual cash dividend JPY27.00 per ordinary share. The distribution of the interim dividend was resolved today by the IIJ’s Board of Directors as JPY13.50 per ordinary share.1. Differences between Consolidated Financial Targets and Actual Results for 1H19 (From April 1, 2019 to September 30, 2019)2. Revision for the Consolidated Financial Targets for FY2019 (From April 1, 2019 to March 31, 2020)3. Reason for Differences and Revision
Our 1H19 revenue exceeded our target, mainly due to steady accumulation of recurring revenues and recognition of systems construction revenues (one-time revenue) along with construction progresses. Gross profit for both network services and systems integration services exceeded our respective targets mainly because of stronger than expected revenue growth. As a result, operating profit, profit before tax and profit for the period attributable to owners of the parent exceeded our financial targets which was announced on May 14, 2019.
Considering the results of revenue and operating profit for 1H19, we revised financial targets for FY2019 operating profit, profit before tax and profit for the year attributable to owners of the parent.< About Internet Initiative Japan Inc. >
