DISCO's dividend policy
To improve the transparency of the Company’s stance prioritizing the return of profits to shareholders, the dividend payout ratio is set at 25% of the consolidated net income.

However, notwithstanding this net income linked-benchmark, the Company will strive to maintain a reliable dividend of 10 yen per half-year.

Except when there is a loss, if the year-end balance of cash and deposits after payment of dividends and income taxes is greater than the projected funding requirements for the acquisition of technology resources, (such as through patent purchases and investment in venture businesses, facility expansion, the retirement of interest-bearing debt and other purposes), one-third of that surplus will be added to dividends.

Furthermore, the ¥20 payout stipulated in our stable dividend policy may be reviewed if there are consolidated net losses in three consecutive years.
