Our basic policy in IR (investor relations) is to provide our shareholders and investors with information on our management policies, business strategies, and information about our earnings and financing in a clear, fair, and accurate manner. We are strongly committed to ensuring timely and accurate information disclosure and conducting proactive IR activities.
We strive to disclose our corporate information in a timely and proper manner according to legal disclosure requirements based on the Financial Instruments and Exchange Law and other laws and according to timely disclosure requirements based on the Securities Listing Regulations of the Tokyo Stock Exchange. We also fairly and promptly disclose significant information that may be considered as influential to investment judgment even in cases where the information is out of the scope of the legal and timely disclosure requirements.
We disclose information required by the timely disclosure regulations through TDnet (Timely Disclosure network) provided by the Tokyo Stock Exchange and we also release information to the press immediately. Information that is disclosed on TDnet or by other means is also promptly posted on our website.
Earnings results briefings and press presentations for the press and analysts of institutional investors and securities firms are also available for live streaming as well as video on demand on our website.
In addition, we provide our shareholders with business reports, and domestic and overseas investors with annual reports to share business results and overview of the Group.
We aim to communicate directly with our shareholders and investors at seminars held as necessary and by appropriately responding to daily inquiries. At the Annual General Meeting of Shareholders held each June, we explain the mid-to-long-term business strategies of the Group in detail and hold a full question-and answer-session in addition to presenting legally required report items so that we can promote understanding of our shareholders about operations of the Group and enhance mutual communications.
Appraisals and requests from our shareholders and investors are used not only to improve the management, but also are shared across the board to enhance our services and business performance.
We observe a quiet period of three weeks prior to an earnings results announcement date to prevent divulging earnings information and to ensure equality. Please note that during this quiet period, we cannot comment on or answer any inquiries about earnings results. If any event that arises during a quiet period is subject to timely disclosure, however, we will promptly disclose the information as appropriate.
