  1. Reason

From the perspective of maximizing enterprise value, in order to respond to rapid changes in the business environment and thrive in the global marketplace, Renesas aims to achieve a durable financial structure by appropriating retained earnings for strategic investments, such as research and development of new products and technologies as well as capital expenditures, and to distribute part of its earnings to shareholders. For each dividend period, payment determinations are made with consideration of consolidated and non-consolidated retained earnings, consolidated profits, outlook for profits for the next and future periods, and cash flows status.

As a result of declining business performance due to the deterioration of the business environment surrounding Renesas Group, the company has continued to withhold dividends since the implementation of the year-end dividend for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2005. However, Renesas Group has established a durable financial structure through measures such as the completion of various structural reforms and growth investments.

In light of these circumstances, as a return to shareholders, Renesas has conducted two rounds of buybacks of its own shares totaling 250 billion yen in June 2022 and April 2023. Furthermore, as an additional measure for further return of profits to shareholders, Renesas has decided to resume dividend payments. For the fiscal year ended December 31, 2023, Renesas plans to distribute a year-end dividend of 28 yen per share.

Dividends for the next fiscal year are undecided at this time and will be disclosed as soon as they are determined. Renesas will continue to work toward continuous and stable dividends.
