Adequate buybacks will be undertaken considering the situation of cash flows and stock prices. The Company has the policy on shareholder returns that puts emphasis on cash dividends, targeting the dividend payout ratio of over 25%.
 

Cash dividends applicable to the fiscal year ended March 31, 2020, are expected to be total ¥95.00 per share.
