2. Reason for the dividend amount

TMC deems the benefit of its shareholders as one of its priority management policies and strives to continue to pay stable dividends with a consolidated dividend payout ratio of 30% while giving due consideration to factors such as business results for each term, investment plans and its cash reserves.

In order to successfully compete in this highly competitive industry, TMC will focus on the early commercialization of technologies for the next-generation environment and safety, giving priority to customer safety and sense of security.

Considering these factors, TMC plans to propose a year-end dividend of 100 yen per share, and an annual dividend of 165 yen per share, combined with the interim dividend of 65 yen per share.
