Purpose of and Our Basic Policy regarding Investor Relations

Therefore, our basic policy is to always engage in investor relation efforts in good faith and to provide information relating to the Company’s management policies, business strategies, and financial conditions in a comprehensible, fair, timely, and accurate manner.
Our Basic Policy on Information Disclosure
We are committed to preventing insider trading and to disclosing information in an accurate, fair, and timely manner in keeping with Japan’s Companies Act, the Financial Instruments and Exchange Act, timely disclosure rules stipulated by securities exchanges, and other laws and regulations. To the extent possible, we will also proactively disclose information not covered by applicable laws and regulations or timely disclosure rules using our website and other media in order to meet the expectations of our stakeholders. We will endeavor to disclose any information that we deem beneficial to understanding the Company.
For information required to be disclosed under timely disclosure rules or other regulations, the Company follows prescribed disclosure procedures including posting information on the Timely Disclosure Network (TDnet) operated by the Tokyo Stock Exchange and publishing securities reports. For all other information disclosures, we will endeavor to be as accurate and fair as possible in communicating with all our stakeholders. All disclosed information will promptly be made available on our website’s IR Library.
Earnings Outlooks and Forward-Looking Statements
Our earnings outlooks and forward-looking statements are forecasts as of the time of disclosure. We make no guarantees regarding their contents as we may change them without prior notice due to modifications we make to our underlying assumptions or to shifts in the business climate. Third-party earnings estimates set forth in analyst reports, informational publications, etc. are based on the opinions of the parties who have developed said estimates. As such, they are outside the Company’s purview and the Company refrains from any and all comment on them.
In order to ensure fairness in information disclosure, the Company observes a “Quiet Period” that begins the day after the quarterly closing date and ends on the day quarterly financial results are released. During this period, we refrain from answering inquiries from our stakeholders about our financial results and earnings outlooks. However, if any important matter warranting disclosure should arise, we will disclose it in accordance with timely disclosure rules. We will answer inquiries about information that has already been disclosed even during the Quiet Period.
Internal Structure Relating to Company Information
Inquiries from stakeholders regarding our IR information will be handled by the internal department responsible for IR. In order to manage insider information, we have established Insider Trading Management Regulations, which regulate the handling of internal information and procedures for trading shares. We work to ensure that our Group companies are made thoroughly aware of and comply with these procedures in order to prevent insider trading.
