The Company will consider paying dividend according to provision of law, including the Public Limited Company Act, B.E. 2535, which requires a public limited company to pay dividend only from the net profit derived from standalone financial statement with no accumulated deficit.
Our current dividend policy is to pay a total dividend of not less than 35% of net profits after deductions for tax and the legal reserve fund as required by applicable law and our Articles of Association and setting aside amounts required for working capital, capital expenditure and business expansion requirements. The Board of Directors will take shareholders’ interests into account when considering the dividend payment, ensuring that such a payment will not materially and adversely affect our ordinary course of business. Dividend payments are subject to change based on our performance, financial condition, liquidity, business expansion plans, and future needs as our Board of Directors and/or shareholders deem appropriate.
The board of directors of the Company may consider payment of an annual dividend of the Company and which must be approved by the shareholders' meeting except for an interim dividend payment which the board of directors of the Company has authority to approve from time to time when deemed that the Company has appropriate net profits. The interim dividend will then be reported at the next shareholder meeting after payment of the interim dividend.
