Dividend Policy

To increase our corporate value, we at Komatsu are building a sound financial position and flexible and agile corporate strengths. Concerning cash dividends to our shareholders, we continue to maintain the policy of redistributing profits by considering consolidated business results to strive to continue stable dividends. Specifically, we have set the goal of a consolidated payout ratio of 40% or higher, and maintains the policy of not decreasing dividends as long as a consolidated payout ratio does not surpass 60%.
