We consider that returning profits to shareholders is one of our most important management responsibilities. Accordingly, we work to build a stable and solid management base capable of standing the test of time with a view to increasing corporate value. Our basic dividend policy is to pay dividends on a steady and sustained basis, taking into account trends in consolidated performance. In principle, we distribute surplus twice a year in the form of interim and year-end dividends. Bodies that make decisions on these dividends are the Board of Directors for interim dividends and general meetings of shareholders for year-end dividends. Internal reserves are used to improve future corporate performance by reinforcing our financial footing and preparing for financial needs to enhance competitiveness and functions from a medium-term perspective.
