GLORY LTD. (the "Company") considers the return of profits to shareholders to be an important management task and retain a policy to continue stable dividends while striving to maintain and enhance a sound financial position in preparation for future business growth. Dividend payments for the three fiscal years during the 2023 Medium-Term Management Plan period will be based on the dividend payout ratio before goodwill amortization on a consolidated basis. In addition, we aim for a three fiscal years average dividend payout ratio before goodwill amortization on a consolidated basis of 30% or more.
With regard to the future purchase of treasury shares, the Company will take the best approach, considering future business development, investment plans, the internal reserves, and performance trends. The Company’s policy is to keep treasury shares within approximately 5% of total shares issued by retiring any treasury shares in excess of that amount.
