Shareholders and Investors

We aim to obtain an appropriate company valuation in stock markets through timely, appropriate and fair information disclosure as well as proactive dialogue with shareholders and investors.

Basic Perspective and Implementation Structure

Toyota Industries continually carries out timely, appropriate and fair information disclosure for shareholders and investors. In this way, we raise management transparency and increase an understanding of the Toyota Industries Group so that we obtain an appropriate company valuation in stock markets.
Our investor relations (IR) activities are supervised by an executive in charge of the Corporate Planning Department. We also strive to engage in proactive dialogue with shareholders and investors by establishing a dedicated department.

Major Initiatives

142nd General Shareholder's Meeting
142nd General Shareholder's Meeting

We implemented various safety protocols for our 142nd General Shareholders’ Meeting held on June 9, 2020, including reducing the number of available seats, to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and ensure the safety of our shareholders.

With regard to the exercise of voting rights, we encouraged shareholders to use the Internet and other online means. All resolutions were passed at the meeting.

For institutional investors and analysts, we held financial results briefings by management, while the Investor Relations Office conducted individual interviews via telephone and the Internet. At these opportunities, we engaged in dialogue on our future direction and other topics, which pertained mainly to initiatives carried out by each business under the pandemic as well as logistics solutions, for which we have been striving for business reinforcement, and efforts concerning electrification in the fields of automobiles and materials handling equipment.

Opinions and requests we collect through communications with shareholders and investors are fed back to executives and relevant business divisions via the Board of Directors and various committees to reflect them in our future business activities.

Returning Profits to Shareholders

Toyota Industries regards ensuring shareholder benefits as one of the most important management policies. Accordingly, we strive to continue paying dividends at the consolidated dividend payout ratio of roughly 30% and meet the expectations of shareholders upon comprehensively taking into consideration such factors as business results and demand for funds.

For fiscal 2021, Toyota Industries decreased annual cash dividends by ¥10.0 from the previous fiscal year and paid annual cash dividends per share of ¥150.0 (interim cash dividend per share of ¥70.0 and year-end cash dividend per share of ¥80.0).
