Dividend Policy of the Company

In considering dividend payments, the Company takes into consideration its performance and the long-term benefits to its shareholders, as well as its capital adequacy. The dividend payments must also receive approval at the shareholders’ meeting. However, the Board of Directors may pay an interim dividend to shareholders occasionally when it considers that the Company has an adequate profit and deems appropriate to make the payment. The Board of Directors is required to report the dividend payments to the shareholders at its next shareholders’ meeting.
