Basic policies on profits distribution and dividends

While striving to maintain long-term stable dividend payment to shareholders, the Company’s basic policy is to determine the distribution of profits on a consolidated basis with consideration given to a proper balance among the following three points: 1) returning profits to shareholders, 2) proactive investment on R&D and facilities for enhancing competitiveness, and 3) internal reserves directed toward future business growth.

In line with this basic policy, giving overall consideration to business performance, future expansion of the business, and financial position etc., at the 51th regular general meeting of shareholders, the Company has set the fiscal year-end dividend for the 51th term at \15 per share.
Consequently, combined with the interim dividend of \15 per share, which has already been paid, the total dividend for the fiscal year is \30 per share. And the total dividend for the next term is predicted to be \30 per share (including an interim dividend of \15 per share), which is the same as it this term.
