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 follows its basic policy of consistently distributing performance-based cash dividends to its shareholders through the enhancement of its earnings power and corporate structure. For fiscal 2017, ended March 31, 2017, Ryobi distributed a year-end cash dividend payment of ¥5 per share. The annual dividend payment was ¥10 per share, including the interim dividend payment of ¥5 per share.

For the fiscal year ending March 31, 2018, the Company plans to pay an interim dividend of ¥5 per share. In addition, reflecting the Company's plans calling for executing a reverse share split, which will come into effect on October 1, 2017 and merge five shares of common stock into one share, the year-end cash dividend for fiscal 2018 will total at ¥25 per share (equivalent to ¥5 per share when the impact of the reverse share split is taken into consideration).

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.

June 2017
