Shareholders Return

Dividend policy

In order to keep the Company's stock on a long-term and stable basis, we will continue to maintain a stable dividend level as the basis of our dividend policy.

With regards to dividends, the Articles of Incorporation states that an interim dividend can be made as stipulated in Article 454, paragraph 5 of the Companies Act to pay dividends from the retained earnings twice a year in conjunction with the year-end dividend, taking into consideration the business results. Regarding the interim dividend for the year-end, based on the surplus, the organization decides the dividend at the general meeting of shareholders and the board of directors.

We will allocate profits considering the status of investment and cash flow from medium to long-term perspective, and the basic indicator of dividend is 5% DOE (Share Capital Dividend Rate).
