We aim to give shareholders an increasing share of our profits while growing our businesses sustainably to maximize our value over the medium to long term.
We generally pay two dividends a year: an interim and year-end dividend. The level of the year-end dividend is determined by shareholders at the AGM, while the level of the interim dividend is determined by the Board of Directors.
We reinvest a portion of our retained earnings in projects aimed at growing the company.
Our Articles of Incorporation provide that, with a resolution of the Board of Directors, we can pay out an interim dividend with June 30 as the record date.
Our company is classified under Japanese law as a “company to which consolidated dividend regulations apply.”
