Shareholder Returns and Dividends
The Company's dividend policy is based on the motivation to sustain stable dividend payments to our shareholders, while also engaging in research and development towards developing new products and increasing the market share, and actively carrying out capital investment in order to maximize each group company's functionality as a global corporation, and in doing so, to solidify corporate durability, ensure steady profits, and distribute earnings which reflect business performance. Dividends are generally paid once a year. The amount of the year-end dividend is determined at the shareholder's meeting.
Please note that the Company's has specified in its articles of incorporation that the board of directors may resolve to set an interim dividend with September 30 of each year as its record date.
