Our basic policy on profit sharing is to pay dividends based on the consolidated payout ratio of at least 30%, comprehensively taking into consideration our medium-term income outlook and investment plans, as well as cash flows generated from them.

We expected the year-end dividend for the fiscal year under review to be 45 yen per share as announced on October 25, 2022. Now, as a result of comprehensively considering, among other factors, the above-mentioned policy and the results for the fiscal year under review, we have decided to increase it to 50 yen per share and pay an annual dividend of 90 yen per share, including the interim dividend.
