Basic Policy for Profit Distribution
Ryobi's basic policy for profit distribution is to consistently distribute stable performance-based cash dividends to shareholders as it strives to improve earnings power and strengthen its corporate structure. In order to strengthen market competitiveness and increase its earnings power over the medium term, Ryobi will apply funds from its internal reserve to: 1) reinforce its manufacturing and sales organization in line with changes to the management environment; 2) achieve growth through capital investment; 3) streamline business procedures; and 4) develop new technologies and products.
