General Meeting of Shareholders

Dividends and Shareholder’s Returns

  • When is the record date of the dividend?

    Year-end Dividends; March 31, Interim Dividends; September 30

  • How do you think about shareholder’s return?

    We consider returning profits to shareholders to be an important management issue, while paying attention to enhancing internal reserves in order to actively implement R&D activities in the Bioindustry Business and Gene Therapy Businesses. Our basic policy is to return profits to shareholders based on a comprehensive consideration of our operating results and financial position. 

    Specifically, the Company's policy is to distribute profits based on around 20% of the estimated net income, which is calculated without taking into account extraordinary gains and losses in the consolidated financial statements. Based on this policy, we plan to pay a year-end dividend of ¥33 per share for fiscal year ended March 31, 2022. 

    For fiscal year ending March 31, 2023 and beyond, we changed our policy to target the latter half of 30% of the assumed net income in the above policy. For details, please refer to the IR News dated May 12, 2022.  
     

  • Do you not introduce a shareholder special benefit plan?

    We have a policy of giving priority to dividends with respect to shareholder returns, and we do not currently have any plans to introduce this policy. 

    We believe that the implementation of the shareholder benefit program should be carefully considered in light of various factors, including operating results and financial condition.
