For the year ending December 31, 2018, while the Group expects to post net income (net income attributable to shareholders of parent company) for the six months ending June 30, 2018, the Group regrettably will forego interim dividend payment for this period.

The Group will divert its retained earnings for strategic investment opportunities that will enable the Group to respond to rapid environmental changes to thrive in the global marketplace, and will aim to increase shareholder profit by improving corporate value. Based on a long-term standpoint, the Group aims to realize stable and sustained growth in profits to allow dividends to be reinstated.

For the year ending December 31, 2018, the plan for year-end dividend payments remain undecided, and the Group will immediately announce it when the decisions are made.
