Fundamental Policy for Distribution of Earnings

TDK recognizes that achieving increase in corporate value over the medium- and long-term ultimately translates into higher shareholder value. In line with this understanding, 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 innovation in the electronics industry, TDK is aiming to increase a medium- and long-term corporate value. Accordingly, TDK actively reinvests its earning in business activities and determines its dividends taking into consideration comprehensive factors, including return on equity (ROE) and dividends on equity (DOE) on a consolidated basis, as well as changes in the business environment, among other factors.

TDK split one share of its common stock into three shares with the effective date of October 1, 2021.

TDK plans to pay an interim dividend of 100 yen per common share and a year-end dividend of 108 yen per common share (conversion before the stock split) respectively in Fiscal 2022.
