Shareholder Return and Dividend

Dividend policy

We believe in prioritizing profit returns for shareholders, and therefore we will work to maintain the stability of those returns in light of our performance. At the same time, from a mid-to-long term standpoint, since we must allocate funds for future investments in equipment, R&D and sales, we are working to bolster our internal reserves, prepare the required capital, and strengthen the constitution of our business.

In terms of actual policy, we will aim for a dividend payout ratio of 30% by reviewing policies and returning profits based on performance, while also taking into account the future of our business development.

Our revised 2nd quarter and full year forecast have been built using assumptions in regards to the impact of COVID-19 on our financial performance. Therefore, we have withdrawn our dividend forecast for now and will once again set a forecast when it becomes feasible.
