Dividends and shareholder benefits

1. Dividend policy

Our basic policy concerning dividends is to set the guideline of our dividend payout ratio at 35% on a consolidated basis and pay dividends flexibly based on performance.

We use retained earnings for new technology/product R&D and for infrastructure and working capital necessary for business growth in order to strengthen business foundation and increase shareholder value.
