Dividend Policy

Providing fair returns to our shareholders is a key management policy of the Sapporo Group. Our basic policy is to pay stable dividends to the extent permitted by our operating performance and financial condition.
As for the level of dividends going forward, the Company will take into account dividend payout ratio and DOE(*)while working to enhance its corporate value under the New Management Plan.
In the event that “profit attributable to owners of parent” fluctuates significantly due to temporary losses related to special factors or recording of profits, the dividend amount may be determined taking into account the impact of such fluctuations.

* DOE = Amount of dividends/Amount of capital (i.e., total equity attributable to owners of parent)
