Dividends Policy

Considering the management performance and financial condition overall, Takara Bio recognizes a basic policy aimed for profit contribution, positioning the profit distribution to shareholders as an important issue for management as well as enhancing the internal reserves to strengthen the R&D activities of three business segments: Bioindustry, Gene Therapy, and AgriBio businesses.

  Specifically, our policy calls for a target rate of around 20% of estimated profit calculated without considering extraordinary income or loss in the consolidated financial statements.
