Dividend Policy

AEON Financial Service sees returning profits to shareholders as a management priority. Our basic policy is to appropriately allocate profits to shareholders and retain funds internally to expand our businesses and improve productivity to enhance corporate competitiveness.

The Articles of Incorporation state that matters specified in each item of Article 459, Paragraph 1 of the Companies Act, such as the distribution of surplus, shall be determined by a resolution of the Board of Directors, not by a resolution of the meeting of shareholders, unless otherwise provided by laws and regulations.

In addition, although the Company's basic policy is to distribute surplus profits twice a year as an interim dividend and a year-end dividend, the Articles of Incorporation state that the Board of Directors may declare dividends at any time during the fiscal year.

Dividend Payments per Share

Dividends for FY2017, the year ended March 31, 2018, totaled ¥68.00 per share and consisted of an interim dividend of ¥29.00 per share and a year-end dividend of ¥39.00 per share.

One of our key business strategies is the return of profits to shareholders; not only do we return an appropriate level of profits to shareholders based on our business performance, we also maintain sufficient reserves to allow for growth and increased productivity. The basic aim of our dividend policy is to increase our company's competitiveness.
