Profit Distribution Policies
Seikagaku’s policy on shareholder returns is to aim for stable and continuous dividends in terms of a medium- to long-term perspective and to continue paying an annual dividend of ¥26 per share. Seikagaku will also consider purchases of treasury stock, as appropriate, taking into account future business development and the total return ratio.
Seikagaku marks the 70th anniversary of its founding on June 2, 2017. For the purpose of expressing gratitude to the shareholders, Seikagaku paid a total year-end dividend of ¥18 per share, to consist of a 70th anniversary commemorative dividend of ¥5 and an ordinary dividend of ¥13. This results in an annual dividend of ¥31 per share, including the interim dividend of ¥13 per share.
