Dividend Policy
LG Chem considers all factors such as, investment amounts, cash flow, financial structure and dividend stability, etc., when the company determines dividend payout amounts for enhancing shareholders’ value and expanding return of profits to its shareholders.
The dividend stability means the company tries to avoid reducing dividend per share, however, it can be flexibly applied to the direction of the company’s long-term growth and continuing enhancement of shareholders’ value after analyzing changes in economic condition and business strategy including CAPEX.
The company will communicate to investors about expected next year’s dividend information in the conference call at least once a year.
