Dividends/Shareholder Returns

Dividend policy

To ensure stable returns to its shareholders, Nippon Shinyaku aims to keep its consolidated dividend payout ratio at around 35% and to increase dividend per share by raising earnings per share (EPS). Note that in some cases the dividend payout ratio is calculated without taking into account extraordinary profit or loss.
