Our company positions the interests of our shareholders as one of our most important management policies, and strives to continuously improve our corporate value while strengthening our corporate structure. As a policy for returning profits to shareholders, we basically consider the distribution of results through dividends, and pay stable and continuous dividends while comprehensively taking into account each fiscal year's consolidated results, investment plans, cash on hand, etc. The policy is to implement the following. Additionally, the Company's policy is to pay dividends from surplus twice a year: an interim dividend and a year-end dividend.
