Dividend Information

Dividend Policy

Kurita Water Industries has adopted a basic policy of distributing retained earnings twice a year through interim and year-end dividend payments.

Organizations who determine the distribution of retained earnings are the annual shareholders meeting for year-end dividend payments and the meeting of the Board of Directors for interim dividends payments.

Setting a payout ratio of 30 to 50% as our target, we will continuously work as possible to increase dividends, making decisions based on the payout ratios for the most recent five years.
