2. Reasons
The Company regards increasing corporate value with proactive capital investment and direct return of profits to shareholders through dividends as two key management policies. Based on the midterm management plan MOL ADVANCE announced on March 22, 2007, the company continues to invest proactively, mainly on vessels. MOL plans to utilize internal capital reserves to cover investment funds and to increase corporate value per share while reinforcing corporate strength. In line with those policies, the Company will maintain a dividend payout ratio of around 20% for the time being. It will also work on increasing the payout ratio as a mid- and long-term management task.

Reflecting this dividend policy, the Company resolved to increase the year-end dividend by \1 from \16 per share in the latest forecast to \17, and the annual dividend to \31 per share (including an interim dividend \14 already paid) for FY 2007. Meanwhile, this matter is planned to be submitted to the Annual General Meeting of Shareholders slated for June 24, 2008, for discussion.
