A Message from the Management


To Our Shareholders and Investors

Aiming to Become a Sound and Dynamic Corporation

Guided by its corporate philosophy, "Create a sound and dynamic corporation through technology, trust and challenge," the Ryobi Group seeks to establish itself as an indispensable existence by responding to the needs of customers and society, through innovative, top-quality products and services.

The Ryobi Group has vigorously promoted CSR activities in such areas as environmental protection and social contribution as well as legal and ethical compliance. Ryobi will implement these activities further, thereby realizing potent, CSR-oriented corporate management.

Ryobi's basic policy for profit distribution is to maintain a stable return of profits to shareholders along with a medium- to long-term improvement in consolidated operating performance and the execution of growth investment. As for dividends for the transitional fiscal period ending December 31, 2018, Ryobi is planning to pay a full-year cash dividend of ¥70 per share comprising an interim dividend of ¥35 per share and a year-end cash dividend of ¥35 per share.

In addition, due to a change in the Company's fiscal year-end, its consolidated operating results for the transitional fiscal period ending December 31, 2018 include the contributions of domestic consolidated subsidiaries for the nine months of April through December 2018 as well as those of overseas consolidated subsidiaries for the 12 months of January through December 2018.

As Ryobi continues to expand and intensity its efforts to be a sound and dynamic corporation, we humbly ask for your continued understanding and support.

November 2018
