TOKYO, JAPAN, October 31, 2014 --- NTT DOCOMO, INC. announced that its Board of Directors resolved today to amend the company's forecast of dividend per share for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2015, as detailed below.

1. Reason for the amendment

Believing that providing adequate returns to shareholders is one of the most important issues in corporate management, the company strives to pay dividends based on the principle of stable dividend payments. Although the company expects that operating income for this fiscal year will decrease, because the company believes there are certain prospects for a large-scale share repurchase, and taking into account a full range of factors, including the company's financial condition, the company has decided to increase its year-end dividends for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2015 from the original forecast of 30 yen per share to 35 yen per share (an increase of 5 yen), increasing the company's forecast of the total annual dividend to 65 yen per share.
