INFORMATION DISCLOSURE POLICY
We strive to disclose information to our stockholders and investors based on transparency, fairness, and continuity, and in compliance with the Financial Instruments and Exchange Act and the rules stipulated by securities exchanges. In addition, we will actively disclose information that may be useful for your understanding of our corporate group.
INFORMATION DISCLOSURE METHOD
We strive to disclose information promptly using various means of information distribution, including timely disclosure network (TDnets), news release distribution, press conferences, and briefings for securities analysts and individual investors. In addition, we strive to post the same information promptly on our corporate webpage.
MATTERS CONCERNING PERFORMANCE FORECAST AND FUTURE FORECASTS
From time to time we may provide information concerning the future prospects of our company and our affiliates. These forecasts are created under certain assumptions, and actual results may differ, depending on various unpredictable factors.
THE QUIET PERIOD
To prevent omission of financial results information and to secure fairness, we generally designate a “quiet period,” which is for three weeks prior to the day of full-year financial results announcement, and two weeks prior to the day of financial results announcement for the first, second, and third quarters. During the period, we refrain from answering and commenting on inquiries regarding financial results. However, we disclose information as needed in compliance with the timely disclosure rule if an event occurs that applies to this rule during a quiet period.
