Under the previous "Midterm Corporate Strategy 2018", we introduced 'progressive dividend' scheme in which we would guarantee previous year's actual paid dividend as a floor and increase dividends in line with continued profit growth.
Under the current "Midterm Corporate Strategy 2021" which has been launched in fiscal year 2019, we will continue the 'progressive dividend' scheme.
