We believe in the importance of returning profits to shareholders in the form of dividends. While it is our basic policy to provide stable, sustainable dividends, when determining dividend amounts we take into overall consideration such factors as operating performance trends, the need for investment to enhance our corporate value and secure funding for R&D to reinforce our competitiveness, and strengthening our financial standing.
