Disclosure Policy

Basic Policy on Disclosure

We strive to promptly provide all relevant information to our shareholders and investors on the foundation of transparency, fairness, and continuity. In addition to our efforts to disclose information in accordance with the Commercial Code, the Financial Instruments and Exchange Act, and the rules for timely disclosure set by the Tokyo Stock Exchange and Nagoya Stock Exchange on which we are listed, we also perform timely and proactive disclosure of information that we deem to be effective in promoting understanding of our company.

Methods of information disclosure

The disclosure of any important information that falls under the timely disclosure rules set by the Stock Exchanges on which our company is listed will be posted and disclosed on the TDnet System, an information channel set up by the Exchanges for timely disclosure and information transmission, following advance briefing to the Exchanges. We also post the same information to our website without delay.

Performance forecasts and matters related to future forecasts

Among the plans, future outlooks, strategies, and other information provided by the company concerning itself and its affiliated companies, information other than past or current factual matters constitutes outlooks concerning future performance and is based on assumptions and judgments that draw on currently available information. Actual performance may differ from these due to changes in risks and uncertainties, economic conditions, and other factors.

Silent period

To prevent leaks of information concerning financial results and to ensure fairness, the company observes a silent period from the day following the closing date of financial results until the announcement date of said results. During this period, the company refrains from answering or commenting on questions concerning its financial results and performance outlook. However, if the possibility arises that the performance forecast could change significantly during the silent period, we will appropriately announce this in accordance with applicable disclosure rules. However, we will respond to questions during the silent period about information that has already been announced.
