We set the year-end dividend for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2018 at ¥20.00 per share and the total cash dividends for the fiscal year at ¥40.00 per share. We plan to keep total dividend at ¥40.00 per share for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2019.                                                At this moment, it is unable to make any forecast of dividends for an interim and the full-year of fiscal year ending March 31, 2021, which will be announced when it will be reasonably predictable.

Dividends Policy

The OLC Group considers shareholder returns to be one of the most important management policies. We will continue to aim for a steady payout of cash dividends while also taking the external environment into consideration.
