Dividends and Return to Shareholders

Basic Policy for Dividends

The Company views the strengthening of returns to shareholders as an important task for management. For dividend distribution, the basic policy for fiscal years lies in stable and continuous distribution of dividends after retained earnings are taken into consideration, for the purposes of investments in production facilities in growing business fields, in technological developments in new business areas, and in tapping new markets.

Dividends

The Group has decided to pay an interim dividend of ¥12 per share (an increase of ¥2 per share from the previous forecast) in consideration of improvements in the profitability of the personal communication equipment segment and in the order trends of the circuit testing connector segment in addition to the first half results exceeding the forecast.
With respect to year-end dividend for this term, the Company has raised the forecast up to ¥14 per share(an increase of ¥2 per share from the previous forecast), due to the good progress of development projects and investment projects for the future business expansion. In this case, the Company's full-year dividends will be ¥26 per share (consolidated payout ratio of 22.4%). (announced on November 7, 2018)
