The Company discloses information in accordance with the Rules on Timely Disclosure of Corporate Information by Issuers of Listed Securities (the “Timely Disclosure Rules”) stipulated by the Financial Instruments and Exchange Act and the Tokyo Stock Exchange. In addition, the Company strives to proactively and fairly disclose information not falling under the Timely Disclosure Rules in response to investor demand.
Information falling under the Timely Disclosure Rules is disclosed by the Company in accordance with said rules via the Timely Disclosure Network (TDnet) provided by the Tokyo Stock Exchange, after the Company explains the information to the Tokyo Stock Exchange. Upon information being released via TDnet, it is then promptly published on the Company’s website. In some cases, there may be a delay in the posting of information on this website owing to certain reasons such as preparation of PDF files.
When disclosing information that does not fall under the Timely Disclosure Rules, the Company complies with the Fair Disclosure Rules, prescribed by the Financial Instruments and Exchange Act, and considers not providing selective disclosure to certain recipients. At the same time, the Company strives to communicate information to all ordinary investors as promptly and fairly as possible by appropriate means.
The Company ensures that there is mutual cooperation between the Corporate Planning Division, the Financial Division, the Accounting and Administrative Division, and other relevant divisions, centering on the Section chief of the Corporate Planning Section, the Unit chief of the Accounting and Administrative Unit, and the Unit chief of the Financial Unit, and it discloses information after complying with prescribed internal procedures.
Certain information disclosed by the Company contains forward-looking statements, including results forecasts. The Company discloses results forecasts as forward-looking statements reflecting certain premises and as forecasts at the time of publication based on assumptions and beliefs of the Company’s management in light of the information currently available. Results forecasts are disclosed as doing so is important to facilitate understanding of the Company. In addition to results forecasts, the Company provides other forecasts pertaining to changes in the business environment and other matters that are as accurate as possible.
However, as forward-looking statements are prepared by the Company in light of the information available at the time of preparation and based on assumptions about uncertainties which the Company defines, avoid making decisions by relying solely on forward-looking statements when examining the Company’s business operations, corporate value and other matters. The Company does not endorse, disapprove or comment on results forecasts of analysts or other third parties.
To keep financial results confidential and to ensure fair disclosure of information to all investors, the Company has established a quiet period from the day immediately after the end of each quarterly fiscal period until the date on which the financial results of said fiscal period are disclosed. During the quiet period, the Company does not comment on or answer any questions about results. However, if the Company expects actual results to differ materially from result forecasts, it discloses the changes during the quiet period in accordance with the Timely Disclosure Rules.
