Shareholder Return and Dividend

Dividend policy

Shareholder return is a key managerial focus for the Company. We aim to provide stable dividends to our shareholders taking into account the cash needs for investment to drive sustainable growth as well as the risk, financial performance and stability.

Specifically, while also accounting for future business needs, we will set 30% payout ratio to consolidated net income and 2% dividend on equity (DOE) as our metrics and pay the higher of the two amounts in order to provide stable dividends to our shareholders.
