Shareholder Returns/Dividends

Basic Policy for Profit Distribution

Distributing earnings to shareholders is one of our highest priorities. For the dividend, our policy is to aim for a higher dividend based on a commitment to dividend stability. Dividends reflect our consolidated performance and financial condition, the need to retain earnings for investments for medium to long-term growth, financial soundness, and other applicable factors.
