Returning adequate earnings to shareholders is as important to us as strengthening our financial condition and management fundamentals. As such, we are determined to distribute earnings to shareholders in line with business performance.
Retained earnings will be used to enhance capital through a balance of investments for the long-term growth of corporate value, and in strengthening the group's financial condition to facilitate flexible capital policies.
