Dividend Policy

We consider it important to expand returns to shareholders through share price growth over the medium and long terms and stable dividends from sustainable growth. We accordingly seek to boost earnings by undertaking strategic investments for sustainable growth. Our consolidated payout ratio benchmark is around 30%, and we will finalize decisions on this level after comprehensively factoring in the earnings outlook, investment plans, and our financial position, taking our credit rating into consideration. We will flexibly repurchase shares in view of the business climate.
