Dividends | Securities Information | For Investors | Asahi Kasei

Our basic policy on shareholder returns is to aim for stable dividends and continuous dividend increases from a medium- to long-term perspective through the sustained generation of cash flow while paying close attention to the balance between investments for growth and our financial position. Specifically, we aim to steadily raise dividends while maintaining a payout ratio of around 30% to 40% and considering the ratio of dividends to shareholders’ equity.
