Shareholder Value Enhancement

Protection of Shareholder Rights and Fair Information Disclosure

We roll out and employ diverse systems geared to ensuring shareholders’ rights in accordance with standards specified in the Articles of association and laws. Stipulating that all shareholders are given one vote per share pursuant to Article 26 of the Articles of Incorporation, we provide cash dividends once a year to allocate and return shareholder value. To enhance an understanding of our shareholders and potential investors, we provide monthly provisional results before publishing our quarterly reports in the interest of fair disclosure.
