Dividend Policy & History

Dividend policy

Returning profits to shareholders is one of the Company’s top management priorities. We have therefore adopted a dividend policy that focuses on the dividend payout ratio, which is closely related to the Company’s business performance. Our fundamental policy is to increase the market value of shares by returning profits to shareholders.
In addition, the Company uses retained earnings to reinforce its financial position, while also investing in new contact centers, information systems and other equipment and facilities to support service expansion and enhance service quality. Our goal is to satisfy shareholder expectations through the pursuit of profits by expanding our business and adding more value to services.
