Basic policy concerning the distribution of profits

Our company works to strengthen its management base to achieve continued increase in corporate value, and at the same time we consider return of profits to its shareholders to be one of our most important management tasks.
For this reason, with respect to paying dividends with surplus funds, we have the basic policy of paying stable dividends appropriate to business results long into the future, aiming to set aside 30% of consolidated net income of a reporting period for dividends, while taking care that there are adequate retained earnings for the strategic investment etc. necessary for medium- to long-term growth.
