Shareholder Returns & Dividends

Basic policy on profit distribution

We think it is important to continue to retain the necessary internal reserves for future business development and financial strength, while at the same time continuing to provide a stable return of profits to shareholders. Although this may change in the future depending on the business environment and investment strategy, for now, our guideline for shareholder return is 50% or more.
