Dividends and Shareholder Returns

Basic Policy Regarding Profit Sharing

For the azbil Group, returning profits to our shareholders is an important priority for management. While striving to raise the dividend level, we also want to maintain stable dividends, taking into consideration the consolidated financial results and such indicators as levels of return on equity (ROE), dividends on equity (DOE), and retained earnings required for future business development and strengthening the business structure.
Regarding retained earnings, effective use is to be made of them by investing mainly in business expansion and strengthening the business foundation: enhancing our products/services, implementing structural reforms for global production/development facilities to promote growth, and ensuring we can continue our business even in the event of a major natural disaster or other unforeseen circumstances. Consequently, we aim to further raise shareholder value.
