We are targeting a dividend payout ratio on normalized EPS of 40% or more to further enhance shareholder return
Kirin views the appropriate distribution of profits to shareholders as a key management issue and has distributed a dividend to shareholders in every financial period since establishment in 1907. Since fiscal 2007 we have reinforced the link between dividends and profits, targeting a consolidated dividend payout ratio of 30% or more. Management believes that shareholders’ needs can be met by continuously providing a stable dividend in each period based on a comprehensive assessment of business performance, the target payout ratio taking real earnings into account, and future capital requirements.
From fiscal 2019, we are targeting a dividend payout ratio on normalized EPS of 40% or more to further enhance shareholder return.
