We were listed on first section of the Tokyo Stock Exchange, on November 4, 2015.
There are three objectives of the listing.
Three companies, Japan Post Bank and Japan Post Insurance in addition to Japan Post Holdings, were listed on first section of the Tokyo Stock Exchange, simultaneously on November 4, 2015.
We used the aggregate proceeds from the concurrent financial subsidiary offerings to repurchase shares of our common stock.
The proceeds from the future offerings of financial subsidiaries will be allocated to suitable investment opportunities for raising the corporate value and repurchase own shares as needed in order to maintain and improve capital efficiency.
Japanese government is required to retain such portion of the interest in Japan Post Holdings that exceeds one-third of its total equity interest and dispose of the remainder as early as possible.
Legally, we are required to dispose of the entire equity interest in Japan Post Bank and Japan Post Insurance within the earliest possible time-frame in light of the condition of the business of each company and any impact on the ability of us and Japan Post Co. to fulfill their universal services obligation (see Question 9).
We intend to reduce our interest in each company in multiple stages to around 50% of our total equity interest in each company, which is considered to have a minor impact on the business conditions of each company and the universal services obligation.
Legally, we are required to hold its entire equity interest in Japan Post Co.. Accordingly, there will be no change in the holding ratio from the listing.
The strength of Japan Post Group is that our three principal subsidiaries jointly deliver three different businesses and services through post offices, and Japan Post Bank and Japan Post Insurance will keep providing their services by utilizing the post office network.
Even if the capital relationship changes, we will keep collaborating with each company as a group.
Japan Post Holdings and Japan Post are under an obligation to provide the public in Japan with universal services, which include maintaining the post office network so that they can provide equal and convenient access mail services, simple saving, remittance and settlement services and easy-to-use life insurance services, at post offices in all regions of Japan in an integrated, simplified and customer-oriented manner. So we will not discontinue any service provision in depopulated areas regardless of the listing.
The year-end dividend record date is March 31, and the interim dividend record date is September 30 if it is implemented.
Furthermore, please contact your securities company for details including the deadline to purchase shares to be entitled to a dividend.
The year-end dividends are paid in June. When interim dividends are paid, they are paid in December.
We aim to provide stable returns to shareholders while maintaining internal reserves and paying attention to capital efficiency.
Accordingly, we intend to maintain a consolidated dividend payout ratio, which represents the total interim and annual dividends declared during a fiscal year expressed as a percentage of consolidated net income attributable to Japan Post Holdings for the same period, of roughly 50% or higher until the year ending March 31, 2018, while maintaining stable dividends per share.
We intend to declare both annual dividends and interim dividends. However, as only one record date will fall within the first fiscal year following the listing of our shares, we will only declare annual dividends for the year ending March 31, 2016. As a result, we intend to achieve a consolidated dividend payout ratio of roughly 25% or higher for the year ending March 31, 2016.
It is 6178.
