Dividend policy

Returning profits to shareholders is positioned as one of the important issues for the management of our group, and we strive to strengthen our financial structure, actively develop our business, and increase the internal reserves necessary to strengthen our management base. Our basic policy is to pay dividends continuously. Our basic policy is to pay dividends from surplus twice a year: an interim dividend and a year-end dividend. The decision-making body for dividends is the board of directors for interim dividends, and the general meeting of shareholders for year-end dividends. In this fiscal year, we will not pay dividends, giving top priority to strengthening our financial base and accumulating internal reserves for future business expansion. Furthermore, our articles of incorporation stipulate that we may pay interim dividends.
