Dividend Policy

Updated date October 28, 2016

We believe the payment of stable, high dividends and improving corporate value (or shareholder value) are important means of returning profits to our shareholders.
We will continuously improve our business performance and maintain high dividends that are commensurate with the expansion of profits.
