Shareholder returns (dividend policy and special offers)

Dividend policy

For the time being, we aim to maintain a dividend payout ratio of 30%, while striving to increase the amount of dividends per share to ensure a stable distribution of profits to all shareholders, reflecting changes in our business performance. We place priority on free cash flow and on the development of new products and technologies to increase our corporate value in the future, while at the same time distributing profits from a long-term perspective.
The Company's basic policy is to pay dividends from surplus twice a year, an interim dividend and a year-end dividend. The Company's Articles of Incorporation stipulate that the Company may pay an interim dividend. The Board of Directors decides on interim dividends, and the General Meeting of Shareholders decides on year-end dividends.
