Shareholder Return

Basic Policy on Return to Shareholders

The Company's basic policy is to maintain internal reserves at a sufficient level to ensure business growth from a medium- to long-term management perspective, while continually paying a stable dividend in consideration of consolidated financial results.
Through the medium-term management plan, we will work toward a more appropriate capital structure and improve capital efficiency by emphasizing growth investments, maintaining a sound financial position and reinforcing return to shareholders. In line with this policy for return to shareholders, we will raise the total return ratio yardstick to 40%, from 35%, and then aim for a dividend ratio of 30% by fiscal 2021 through stable dividend growth.

*Total return ratio: Ratio of dividends and treasury stock buybacks to income attributable to owners of the parent
