Shareholders Return

The Company considers the return of profits to shareholders to be a priority management issue. As a general policy, the Company decides the level of dividends based on a comprehensive analysis of consolidated earnings results, the financial condition, and the dividend payout ratio. Internal reserves are used to improve future earnings by maintaining and enhancing investments and competitiveness. Based on these initiatives, the Company aims to continue its growth into the future and secure longterm stable returns to shareholders.
      For the year ended March 31, 2024, the Company achieved the initial profit target for profit attributable to owners of parent. Accordingly, the Company plans to pay an annual dividend per share of ¥70 (as ¥15 was provided as an interim dividend in the second quarter, ¥55 will be provided for the year-end dividend). The consolidated payout ratio will therefore be 18.9%.
      For dividends for the year ending March 31, 2025, assuming that the forecast profits areachieved, the Company plans to pay an interim dividend per share of ¥20 and a year-end dividend per share of ¥50 to provide an annual dividend per share of ¥70.
