Basic policy for Returns to Shareholder

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.
In 2018 (the fiscal year ending December 31, 2018), in accordance with the above policy, we plan to pay an annual dividend of 30 yen (DOE 2.7%), comprising an interim dividend of 15 yen per share and a year-end dividend of 15 yen per share.
*DOE=Annual Cash Dividend/ Equity
