TDK recognizes that achieving growth in corporate value over the long term ultimately translates into higher shareholder value. In line with this recognition, TDK's fundamental policy is to work to consistently increase dividends through growth in earnings per share. By actively investing for growth, mainly in the development of new products and technologies in key fields so as to respond precisely to rapid technological advances in the electronics industry, TDK is aiming to increase long-term corporate value. Accordingly, TDK actively reinvests the Company's profits in business activities and sets dividends taking comprehensively into consideration the return on equity (ROE) and dividends on equity (DOE) on a consolidated basis, as well as changes in the business environment, among other factors.
