Dialogue with individual investors
We had previously held company presentations for individual investors several times a year, but in part due to the COVID-19 pandemic, these did not take place in fiscal 2022. In fiscal 2023 we will keep a close eye on the COVID-19 situation, and hold such presentations again if at all possible.
Distribution of profits to shareholders
In fiscal 2022, as a result of a comprehensive review of the consolidated financial results for the year ended March 31, 2022 and other matters, we paid a year-end dividend of 32 yen per share. Combined with the mid-year dividend, this meant that for the full year, the dividend paid was 64 yen per share.
We will actively invest profit generated through our business activities into growth areas to maximize total basic earnings per share and increase shareholder value.
