Daifuku regards the return of profits to shareholders as its most important management task and has adopted a performance-based policy for cash dividends based on consolidated net income.
Under its three-year business plan, Value Transformation 2023, Daifuku aims to achieve a consolidated dividend payout ratio of 30% or more and increase its corporate value through investment in growth.
With respect to dividends for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2022, Daifuku plans to pay an annual dividend of 85 yen (an interim dividend of 35 yen per share and a year-end dividend of 50 yen), taking into consideration the earnings forecast for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2022 and the basic policy described above.
