Shareholder's Returns

Basic Policy

In "Challenge 2020 Vision", the Group plans to use the cash flow resulting from the steady execution of the plan for aggressive investment and financing in the total energy business that will support, In addition, the Group will appropriately distribute profits to its shareholders. Specifically, the Group has set a 60-percent target for the total payout ratio to shareholders (dividends plus treasury stock acquisition divided by consolidated net income).
Total payout ratio of year n = [(dividends from unappropriated profit in year n) + (amount of treasury stocks acquired in year n + 1)] / (consolidated net income in year n)
Based on this "total payout ratio" approach, dividends from fiscal 2018 are 60.0yen a year. In fiscal year 2019, we also bought back about 8,919,700 shares for about 23.9 billion yen. As a result, the fiscal 2018 total payout ratio was 60.3%.
Total Payout ratio:60.3% = (26.9billion yen : dividend inFY2018 + 23.9billion yen : Share buy back in FY2019) /84.5billion yen : Net income in FY2018
