Disclosure Policy

1.Information Disclosure Standards

We disclose information in accordance with the Companies Act, Financial Instruments and Exchange Act, and other laws, as well as rules on the timely disclosure of company information stipulated in the Tokyo Stock Exchange’s Securities Listing Regulations (hereafter “Timely Disclosure Rules”). When information related to determined facts, occurring facts and account settlement related matters that affect significant impact on investment decisions occurs, such information will be promptly disclosed following the standards outlined in the Timely Disclosure Rules. At the same time, we will actively disclose information that is deemed to be important or beneficial in order for investors to understand the Company, even when it is not subject to the Timely Disclosure Rules.
However, personal information, client information and information that may infringe upon the rights of a related party will not be disclosed.

2.Information Disclosure Methods

Information subject to the Timely Disclosure Rules is promptly published on our corporate website following registration in the Timely Disclosure Network (TDnet) provided by Tokyo Stock Exchange Group, Inc. Information that is not subject to the Timely Disclosure Rules is also openly announced via various media including our corporate website.

3.Quiet Period

In order to ensure fairness to every investor, we have defined the quiet period as the time starting from the day after the final day of each corresponding quarter until the day of our earnings announcement. During this period, we will refrain from responding to or making comments on questions related to our account settlement and earnings forecast. However, if a large discrepancy from the earnings forecast is found in the quiet period, information will be appropriately disclosed following the Timely Disclosure Rules.
