MediaTek distributes retained earnings available for distribution in the form of cash dividends or stock dividends. Both the timing and the amount of distributions depend on our earnings and financial conditions.

Regular cash dividend:  MediaTek raises regular cash dividend payout ratio to 80%-85% of our annual earnings after tax since 2021, from 60%~70% in the previous years.

Special cash dividend during 2021 to 2024: Unless there are special circumstances, shareholders will receive a special cash dividend of NT$16 dollars per share every year from 2021 to 2024, on top of a regular cash dividend based on 80%~85% payout ratio. The final amount of cash dividend every year is still subject to the Board’s and shareholders’ approval in that year in accordance with the applicable laws and regulations and the company’s articles of incorporation. The 4-year special cash dividend program amount exceeds NT$100bn.
