Shareholder Returns and Dividends

Shareholder Returns and Dividends policy

Our company considers the return of profits to shareholders to be an important management issue.
From 2023 to 2025, we will implement Shareholder Returns and Dividends with a total return ratio of 50% or more based on the three-year cumulative net income excluding inventory effects, with a minimum dividend of 32 yen per share. We will carry out share buybacks in a flexible manner, keeping stock price levels in mind.

  • The Company has split its common stock into 5 shares, effective January 1, 2024. The above dividend per share is based on the after-stock-split basis.
