Dividend Information

Dividend policy stipulated in the Articles of Incorporation

If the Company turns a profit for the fiscal year, an amount no less than 3% to 10% of the profit should be appropriated as employees' bonus and no more than 5% of the profit should be appropriated as Directors' compensation. However, if the Company still records a cumulative loss, its profit shall first be used to make up the loss. The counterparty to whom stocks or cash are distributed to as employee's compensation in the preceding paragraph includes the employees of its subordinate companies that meet certain criteria.

The current year's earnings, if any, shall first be used to pay all taxes and offset prior years' accumulated losses and then set aside 10% as legal reserve. When such legal reserve amounts to the total paid-in capital, the Company shall not be subject to this requirement. The Company may then appropriate or reverse a certain amount as special reserve according to the relevant regulations. The remaining earnings, plus the accumulated undistributed earnings, may be appropriated to shareholders as dividends or bonuses according to the distribution plan proposed by the Board of Directors and approved by the Shareholders' Meeting.

To respond to economic changes and to strengthen the Company's financial structure, the Company has adopted a balanced dividend policy. The policy for future dividend distribution is as follows:
(1) The Company shall appropriate no less than 10% of the aforementioned distributable earnings as dividends for shareholders. However, when the distributable earnings are less than 10% of the paid-in capital, the Company may choose not to distribute dividends.
(2)In consideration of a balanced and stable dividend policy, the Company will adequately adopt either share dividends or cash dividends based on investment capital needs and the levels of dilution on the earnings per share (EPS), provided that the cash dividends shall be no less than 10% of the total dividends.

If all or part of the above-mentioned dividends and bonuses are distributed in cash, the board of directors shall be authorized to attend with more than two-thirds of the directors, and more than half of the directors present shall agree to do so, and report to the shareholders meeting. Therefore , Paragraph 1 is not applicable.
