Basic Policy on Allocating Profits

The Company places topmost management importance on the principle of stable shareholder returns, paying dividends to shareholders in line with business performance. Consequently, we determine dividends by taking into overall consideration performance trends, the operating environment and our dividend payout ratio, while at the same time recognizing the need to reinforce our operating base and business structure. We also take into account the need to retain earnings for business development over the medium to long term.
Our basic policy is to distribute surplus funds twice a year, as interim and year-end dividends. The general meeting of shareholders determines year-end dividends, while the Board of Directors decides interim dividends.
We target a dividend payout of 30% or more, and we raise the shareholder dividend and conduct stock splits as business performance improves. We set aside adequate internal reserves to reinforce our base of operations and business structure. To this end, we also carry out capital investment and invest actively in technological development.
