Shareholder Benefits Program

We introduced a new shareholder benefits program to thank shareholders for their support and to encourage them to try our services.
We would like as many shareholders as possible to experience our services and support us over the long term.

Basic Policy on Profit Distribution Including Dividends

Basic Policy on Profit Distribution Including Dividends
We position the return of profits to shareholders as a key issue for management, and make it our basic policy to pay out adequate dividends that are commensurate with our profits.
In an effort to realize stable dividends of our retained earnings in the current fiscal year, our interim dividend was 20 yen per share and we plan to pay out a year-end dividend of 20 yen per share.
For the following fiscal year, we also plan to pay out an interim dividend of 20 yen per share and a year-end dividend of 20 yen per share.
