Dividends

Dividend Basic Policy

Mabuchi's basic policy is to collect funds for research and development and capital investment, which are required for Mabuchi's growth and development, from internal reserves, to maintain financial soundness, and to actively carry out both paying long-term stable dividends and returning Mabuchi's profits such as dividend increase and stock split according to performance.

Standards for Calculating Dividends

Dividend amount is the sum of ordinary dividend and special dividend. The following are standards for calculating both dividends:

  • Ordinary dividend:
    annually 60 yen per common stock as a long-term stable dividend
  • Special dividend:
    amount as a dividend of business results, which is calculated by dividing 30% of consolidated net income by the number of total stocks

Date of Record (Date of Right Allotment)

It is Mabuchi's basic policy to distribute surpluses twice a year as interim dividend and year-end dividend. The shareholders' meeting and the board of directors determine distribution of the surpluses as the year-end dividend and the interim dividend, respectively.

  • Dates of record for surpluses
    • Interim dividend: June 30
    • Year-end dividend: December 31
