Shareholder Returns/Dividends

We regard return of profits to shareholders as one of the most important management tasks. With a recognition that increasing corporate value through investments for growth is the common interests of our shareholders, we have established a basic policy that we should first give priority to business investments leading to sustainable corporate value improvement and then make shareholder returns in line with profit growth with the target total payout ratio to consolidated profit attributable to owners of parent before amortization of goodwill (See Note 1) of approximately 40%.
