Policy for earnings distributions
Returning earnings to shareholders is one of the highest priorities of Kagome.
The Company’s shareholder return policy is to aim for a total return ratio of 40% and stable cash distribution of at least 35 yen per share each year based on the consolidated financial results under the three-year mid-term management plan implemented from 2019 to 2021.
With respect to dividends for the current fiscal year, the Company decided to pay a total dividend of 35 yen per share. In addition, we plan to pay a dividend of 36 yen per share in the next fiscal year.
The 2018 year-end dividend is the sum of an ordinary dividend of 30 yen and a commemorative dividend of 10 yen.
