Breakdown of annual dividend for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2014: Ordinary dividend of 30 yen + Commemorative dividend of 5 yen (celebrating 100th company anniversary)

Profit distribution policy (dividend principle)

House Foods Group previously considered the payment of stable dividends, with a dividend payout ratio of at least 30% on a consolidated basis as a standard, as the basic policy regarding profit distribution. However, extraordinary income from shares for step acquisitions and the amortization of goodwill and intangible assets are expected to arise due to an increase in consolidated subsidiaries. The Group therefore revised its basic policy on profit distribution to “maintain the payment of stable dividends with a dividend payout ratio of at least 30% on a consolidated basis excluding the effects of extraordinary income arising from business combinations and the amortization of goodwill as standard” from the fiscal year ended March 31, 2016.
