DISCO's 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 25% of the consolidated net income.

Note: The total amount of the interim dividend will consist of 25% of consolidated net income for the first half of the year (April-September), and that of the final dividend, of 25% 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 reliable dividend of 10 yen per half-year.

Except when there is a loss, if the year-end balance of cash and deposits after payment of dividends and income taxes is greater than projected funding requirements for the acquisition of technology resources, one-third of that surplus will be added to dividends. The ¥20 payout stipulated in our stable dividend policy may be viewed if there are consolidated net losses in three consecutive years.
