Basic policy on profit allocation
The basic policy of Asahi Holdings is to improve corporate value by maintaining profitability and delivering sustainable growth, and to meet the expectations of shareholders by providing sustainable, stable dividends. We also believe that it is important to enhance internal reserves to prepare for investment in growth areas and new business development. Based on this policy, we aim for a consolidated dividend payout ratio of 50% or higher. The ratio is decided after taking into consideration the business results of each fiscal year, the need for enhancing the financial position, and the management strategy of the Group.
