The Company recognizes that the broad-based, timely, and appropriate disclosure of corporate information is critical to the decision-making process of all stakeholders.
As such, we engage in proactive information provision through activities including enhancing our IR website and earnings conferences.
We work to enhance communications with shareholders and investors by holding regular conferences and by responding to daily inquiries.
Early delivery of General Meeting of Shareholders' convening notice
We work towards the early delivery of notices to provide shareholders with sufficient opportunity to evaluate proposals up for vote.
Setting dates for the General Meeting of Shareholders that avoids peak periods
To ensure participation from more shareholders, whenever possible we avoid popular days for shareholder meetings and hold meetings in locations with favorable access.
Provision of meeting notice (summary) in English
We create summary versions of meeting notices in English and publish them to our IR website.
Twice per year (after 2Q earnings and annual earnings announcements), we hold earnings conferences for analysis, institutional investors, and media.
In addition to marketable securities reports and other disclosure documents required by law, we practice the timely publishing of the presentation materials used at earnings conferences.
We assign IR staff within the Corporate Planning Office to engage in IR activities.
1. Basic Policy
Our company conducts timely, appropriate, and fair information disclosure to all stakeholders. Our company complies with the Companies Act, the Financial Instruments and Exchange Act, and other laws as well as rules set forth by the Tokyo Stock Exchange to conduct the rapid disclosure of information applicable to marketable securities listing regulations. Furthermore, we aggressively disclose information relevant to promoting a better understanding of our company.
2. Method of information disclosure
The disclosure of information applicable to Timely Disclosure Rules is disclosed via the timely disclosure information communications system (TDnet) provided by the Tokyo Stock Exchange in accordance with said rules. Furthermore, following disclosure we immediately publish said information to our IR website. Information not subject to Time Disclosure Rules is also published fairly to our website in the spirit of timely disclosure.
3. Forward-looking statements
Of the information we disclose, forecasts, plans, projections, etc. concerning performance for the current fiscal year and future performance are reasonable assumptions based on available information at the time of disclosure. These forward-looking statements include risks and uncertainties, and may differ from actual results or performance.
4. Silent period
To prevent earnings information leaks and to ensure fairness, our company establishes a silent period, which lasts from the day after the closing day for each quarter as well as the closing day for the fiscal year until the day of each earnings release. During this period, we refrain from making any comments or responding to any inquiries regarding earnings or performance forecasts. However, in the event that during this period we come to expect a major fluctuation in our earnings forecast, we will provide appropriate disclosure in accordance with Timely Disclosure Rules.
