Distribution of Profits

Dividend policy

Career Link positions the distribution of earnings to shareholders as one of its highest priorities along with measures to build a sound foundation for business operations. The fundamental policy is to pay a dividend consistently at a suitable level that reflects results of operations and all other aspects of operations. At the same time, sufficient earnings will be retained to fund actions to achieve sustained growth and to strengthen operations.
The Articles of Incorporation include a provision for the payment of an interim dividend. The interim dividend is determined by the Board of Directors and the year-end dividend is determined at the shareholders meeting.
