IIJ Announces Revision To Its Year-end Dividend Forecast For The Fiscal Year Ending March 31, 2011

TOKYO, Feb. 10, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Internet Initiative Japan Inc. ("IIJ") (Nasdaq:IIJI) (TSE1:3774), one of Japan's leading Internet-access and comprehensive network solutions providers, today announced a revision to its Year-end dividend forecast for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2011 ("FY2010").

1.     Reason for Revision to Year-end Dividend Forecast

Our dividend policy is to have stable and continuous dividend while having room for our necessary investment for business expansion and development for the future.

With regard to our dividend policy and our nine months ended FY2010 income level, we revised our FY2010 year-end dividend forecast from JPY1,250 to JPY1,500 per share of our common stock. We have already paid interim dividend of JPY1,250 per share of common stock for FY2010 interim period, therefore the total dividend forecast for FY2010 will be JPY2,750 per share.
