To improve the transparency of the Company's stance prioritizing the return of profits to shareholders, the dividend payout ratio is set at 20% of consolidated net income for each half year period.

Dividend Policy
To improve the transparency of the Company’s stance prioritizing the return of profits to shareholders, the dividend payout ratio is set at 20% of the consolidated net income.

Note: The total amount of the interim dividend will consist of 20% of consolidated net income for the first half of the year (April- September), and that of the final dividend, of 20% of consolidated net income for the second half of the year (October-March). However, notwithstanding this net income linked-benchmark, the Company will strive to maintain an annual dividend payment of not less than 20 yen per share as a stable base dividend.

If the four-year cumulative consolidated ratio of ordinary income to net sales is higher than 20%, a dividend payout ratio of 24% of consolidated net income will be applied. Any difference over the interim dividend will be distributed with the final dividend.
