1. Dividend Policy and the dividends of FY2021
JAL regards shareholder returns as one of our most important management matters. Our fundamental policy is to actively implement shareholder returns through continuous and stable dividends and flexible share repurchases, while securing internal reserves for making investments for corporate growth in the future and changing business environments and to build a strong financial structure.
As the spread of COVID-19 still continued, EBIT decreased to a loss of 82.6 billion yen and when recovery of passenger demand starts is not clear yet. Considering the above, we determined to pursue liquidity at hand and financial robustness as our first priority. Therefore, we regret that we have determined not to pay interim dividends. We sincerely apologize to our shareholders and investors, and would like to ask for their understanding amid the very difficult situation that we are currently in.
For the forecast of the year-end dividends per share and the total dividends per share for the fiscal year ending March 2022, it will be undetermined because of the current unforeseeable situations and we will disclose the forecast as soon as the situation becomes foreseeable.
