Dividends and Shareholder Returns

Basic Dividend Policy

In terms of profit distribution, Artner comprehensively considers future business developments, earnings, the management environment, as well as the strengthening of its management foundations, and positions the supply of stable dividends to its shareholders as top-priority management task.
While taking into account earnings trends and other factors, Artner’s basic policy calls for the biannual distribution of retained earnings in the form of interim and year-end dividends. The distributions of retained earnings are decided by the general shareholders meeting in the case of the year-end dividend and by the board of directors in the case of the interim dividend.
Internal reserves are set aside to address projected future changes in the management environment and invest efficiently in enriching our pool of human resources, etc.

Based on a resolution by the board of directors, Artner may issue an annual interim dividend on July 31, which has been set as the record date. This is also specified in the articles of incorporation of the company.
