Dividends and Shareholder’s return

  • When is the record date of the dividend?

    Dividends; March 31, Interim Dividends; September 30

  • How do you think about shareholder’s return?

    Considering the management performance and financial statement comprehensively, Takara Bio recognizes a basic policy aimed for profit contribution, positioning an important business management issue to distribute profits to shareholders as well as enhancing the internal reserves to strengthen the research development activities in Bioindustry and Gene Therapy businesses. Specifically, the dividends of surplus will be paid at around 20% of estimated profit calculated without considering extraordinary income or loss in the consolidated financial statements.

      Takara Bio decided to upwardly revise the forecasted year-end dividend for fiscal 2019 by of ¥1.00 per share from ¥6.00 to ¥7.00 under the revision of financial forecast and the shareholder return policy shown above.

  • Does Takara Bio have a shareholder benefits program?

    We don’t have a shareholder benefits program at present.  As for shareholder returns, we are giving priority to dividends, and currently we are not planning to introduce it.
