(As of March 31, 2021)
Toyota deems the benefit of its shareholders as one of its priority management policies, and it continues to work to improve its corporate structure to realize sustainable growth in order to enhance its corporate value. Toyota will strive for the stable and continuous payment of dividends, seeking to maintain and improve upon the consolidated payout ratio of 30% to its shareholders.
With a view to surviving tough competition and transitioning to a mobility company, Toyota will utilize its internal funds mainly for investment in growth for the next generation such as environmental technologies to achieve a carbon neutral society and safety technologies for the safety and security of its customers. Considering these factors, with respect to the dividends for fiscal 2021, Toyota has determined to pay a year-end dividend of 135 yen per share of common stock by a resolution of the board of directors pursuant to Toyota’s articles of incorporation. As a result, combined with the interim dividend of 105 yen per share of common stock, the annual dividend will be 240 yen per share of common stock, and the total amount of the dividends on common stock for the year will be 671.0 billion yen. Furthermore, Toyota resolved, at its board of directors meeting held on May 12, 2021, to repurchase a maximum of 41 million shares of its common stock at a total maximum amount of 250 billion yen. Toyota will flexibly repurchase shares with the aim to promote capital efficiency by comprehensively taking into consideration its investment in growth, level of its dividends, its cash reserves and the price level of its common stock.
