Under SHIFT 2023, our medium-term management plan for FY2021 to FY2023, we decide the annual dividend based on our fundamental policy of paying long-term stable dividends and taking into consideration the status of fundamental earnings capacity, cash flows, and other factors, with a consolidated payout ratio of about 30% as a guideline, maintaining at least 70 yen per share, the same amount as the annual dividend for FY2020.
