For the year ending March 31, 2016, while the Group expects to post net income (net income attributable to shareholders of parent company) for the six months ending September 30, 2015, the Group regrettably suspended interim dividend payment for this period in order to build a solid profitable financial base that can stably record net income moving forward.

 

For the year ending March 31, 2016, the plan for year-end dividend payments remain undecided, and the Group will immediately announce it when the decisions are made.
