MBK has a dividend policy with the calculation of the dividend based on "the consolidated financial statements". In this connection, each dividend payment also has to take into account the retained earnings in "the separate financial statements". This is in compliance with the Public Limited Company Act which stipulates that no dividend shall be paid out of funds other than profit and in the case where the company still sustains an accumulated loss, no dividend shall be paid.
As regard the dividend payout ratio, unless there is any unexpected event, it is the Company’s policy that the net dividend per share for the current period will not be less than the previous period. The objective is to ensure the reliability in receiving dividends for the shareholders who hold the shares of the Company on a long term, with the shares being considered as Dividend Stock.
