Policy Regarding the Payment of Dividends

Our basic policy for profit sharing is to ensure dividends are in line with consolidated operating results, targeting a consolidated payout ratio of 30% for the medium term. We will also determine dividends by giving consideration to the need to ensure financial soundness, to our ability to maintain stable dividend payments over the medium to long term, and to securing sufficient internal reserves to fund strategic investments aimed at ensuring future growth.
