Disclosure Policy

Basic Policy for Information Disclosure

The basic policy of our company is to promptly disclose accurate and impartial information to stockholders, investors and all other stakeholders. Furthermore, we will also continue striving for timely and proactive information disclosure that we think is useful for our stakeholders, in addition to timely disclosure of important information pursuant to legal imperatives and timely disclosure rules of the Tokyo Stock Exchange, such as the Financial Instruments and Exchange Act and the Securities and Exchange Act.

Information Disclosure Method

Disclosure of important information falling under the timely disclosure rules of the Tokyo Stock Exchange is handled in accordance with the same rules and by means of the timely information disclosure system (TDnet) of the same stock exchange. Also as a rule, information released through TDnet is promptly posted on this site. In addition, even when releasing information that does not fall under the timely disclosure rules, we endeavor to see that the disclosed information is promptly conveyed as accurately and impartially as possible through outlets such as the news media and this site.

Voluntary Restraint Period for IR Activities

In order to prevent leaks of information affecting stock price, such as financial statements, and to ensure impartiality, our company has established a voluntary restraint period for IR activities for approximately two weeks prior to the date of earnings announcements; during this time we withhold comments and responses to questions regarding the closing of accounts. However, in the event that important facts covered by timely disclosure rules come to light during the voluntary restraint period, they will be promptly announced. Moreover, regarding questions, etc., related to information that was previously released, we will respond regardless of the voluntary restraint period.

Forecast for the Future

With the exception of facts known in the past, future plans and strategies, etc., relating to the future prospects of our company and its group, which are posted on this site, are determined based on information available at the time. Risks and other uncertain factors are also included within this, and fluctuations may occur in the future depending on the Japanese economy, movements in the stock market, trends in the information services industry and the development of new services and technologies, etc. Therefore, our company and its group cannot guarantee the certainty of these projections, and recommend restraint in placing undue reliance upon these projections alone.
