Shareholder Returns & Dividends
Our basic policy is to distribute surplus twice a year as interim and year-end dividends. Following on from the fiscal year ended March 31, 2023 (FY2022), our dividend policy is to pay attention to the stability and sustainability of dividends while considering factors such as performance trends, financial condition, and cash flow position on a comprehensive basis.
For fiscal year ending March 31, 2024 (FY2023), the annual dividends per share is planned to be 86 yen (of which, the interim dividends per share is planned to be 43 yen).
We consider the return of profits to shareholders to be an important goal for our management along with increasing medium to long term corporate value. To increase corporate value, we will make capital investments efficiently to further raise the sophistication of 5G, as well as continuing investments in new businesses.
We will continue to grow both telecommunications business and new businesses, striving to increase our corporate value and make an appropriate return of profit to shareholders.
