Dividend Policy

Ateam believes that it is important to solidify the financial base and upgrade its business portfolio through upfront investments in new business creation in pursuit of sustained growth. At the same time, we consider the return of earnings to shareholders to be an important issue and set a dividend policy of providing continuous and stable shareholder returns.

Distribution of year-end dividend planned for early October.

Actual dividends per share may differ substantially from these forecasts subject to various factors.
