Dividend Policy

LG U+ seeks to increase dividend payout ratio from a long-term perspective to enhance shareholder value and expand shareholder return.

Dividends are determined based on a balance between securing financial resources for long-term growth and returning to shareholders by comprehensively considering the business environment such as financial performance, cash flow, and investment plans.

In order to strengthen the shareholder return policy, from the 2022 fiscal year, LG Uplus plans to change the dividend policy by increasing the existing dividend payout ratio of 30% or more to 40% or more of the net income based on the separate financial statements (excluding one-time non-recurring profit).

By communicating with the market through this long-term dividend policy, LG Uplus will strengthen sustainable management and improve the predictability of shareholder return.

Dividends are discussed in-depth at the board of directors, and the results are immediately communicated through a ‘Decision on Cash Dividend and Dividend in Kind.’ We are actively communicating with the market about the expected dividend outlook for the next year through the quarterly earnings results.
