Returns to Shareholders (Dividends, etc.)
Basic policy on profit sharing
Our basic policy regarding dividends is to distribute results consistent with stable and continuous growth of the business performance while securing the internal reserves necessary for future business development and for strengthening management foundations. We have announced our SHIP VISION 2020 medium-term management plan for the period from 2018 to 2020, whereby we plan to strengthen our returns to shareholders during the period covered by the plan, maintaining a stable dividend payout ratio of 30 % or more, while also accounting for matters such as future business development, levels of internal reserves, and trends in stock prices. We are implementing flexible shareholder return policies, including purchasing up to 2 billion yen per year in treasury stock.
