１．Standards of Information Disclosure
The Company adopts the basic stance as a listed company to appropriately manage the material information of its group and engage in fair, equal, accurate and prompt information disclosure, and thereby maintain and enhance trust from any stakeholders, such as investors.
The Company endeavors to disclose material information in a timely and appropriate way in compliance with Financial Instruments and Exchange Act, Companies Act and relevant rules of the stock exchange. In addition, even for information to which the Timely Disclosure Rules does not apply, the Company discloses such information as proactively and fairly as possible in light of the purport of timely disclosure.
２．Manner of Information Disclosure
The Company discloses information to which the Timely Disclosure Rules applies via TDnet (Timely Disclosure network), provided by the Tokyo Stock Exchange, in accordance with the Rule, and then posts the same information on its website as soon as possible.
The Company sets the period between the next day of financial closing and the scheduled date of announcement of the financial results as a “silent period”. During this time, the Company does not provide any information on its business performance in principle and refrains from providing answers or comments to questions. However, if the Company expects to see a large difference with previously announced earnings forecasts during the “silent period”, the Company appropriately discloses new information.
