Dividend Policy

As for profit return to shareholders, our group has the basic policy for deliberating and implementing profit return by balancing internal reserve through comprehensive consideration of the followings: business performance, financial status, future business and investment plans. Specifically, we set a consolidated payout ratio target of approximately 40%.

In principle, we plan to distribute surplus funds as dividends either once a year – at the end of the fiscal year – or twice a year. Decisions regarding interim dividends will be made in a Board meeting, while decisions regarding year-end dividends will be made at the general meeting of shareholders.
