Basic Policy for Shareholder Returns

We aim to achieve total returns, comprising direct returns to shareholders through dividends and medium-to-long term share price gains. Based on this approach, our basic policy is to focus on making strategic investment for sustainable growth, thus aiming for maximization of corporate value. At the same time we will enhance capital efficiency exceeding capital costs, with a view to increasing dividends and our share price over the medium-to-long term.
Upon determining dividends, we will achieve long-term, stable and continuous enhancement of returns with emphasis given to consolidated business results and free cash flow, and set the minimum level of Dividend on Equity (DOE*) of 2.5%, which we see as an indicator that reflects our capital policy. We will also buy back shares flexibly taking the market environment into consideration.

  • * DOE=Annual Cash Dividend/ Equity

Dividends per Share

Dividend Forecast for FY2020

While the Company forecasts a net loss for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2020 due to COVID-19, it will continue to pay stable dividends. However, since the timing of recovery is uncertain and the Company needs to maintain its liquidity, the interim dividend for 2020 will be reduced by 10 yen from the 30 yen in the previous fiscal year, to 20 yen per share. The year-end dividend forecast will also be reduced by 10 yen to 20 yen. As a result, the annual dividend will be 40 yen per share, down 20 yen from the previous year.
Furthermore, the Company has received a proposal from its CEO and corporate officers to reduce their remuneration as a step for improving profitability in response to the deteriorating market environment. Following discussions by the Executive Remuneration Advisory Committee, the Board of Directors has resolved to reduce the amount of remuneration.
