TOA positions enhancing returns of profits to shareholders as one of the management priorities. Having a policy of providing stable dividends as a basis, and taking our business performance into account, we endeavor to provide returns to shareholders.
With respect to distribution of retained earnings, we adopt a basic policy of maintaining an annual dividend of 20 yen, and aim for a consolidated dividend payout ratio of 35% based on our business performance. The amount of dividends paid will also be determined by considering the overall balance with our internal reserves, so as to enable sustainable growth of TOA.
Based on this policy, we propose payment of a year-end dividend of 10 yen per share for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2022.
The Company views an increase of returns of profits to shareholders as an important managerial task.
