Policies Related to Constructive Dialogue with Shareholders
In order to achieve sustainable growth and increase our medium- and long-term corporate value, we provide clear explanations of our business to our shareholders and promote constructive dialogue with them in order to gain their understanding. To this end, we have established the following policies.
We at Nitto position IR activities as one of our key business issues, and senior management members personally promote dialogue with shareholders, with the CEO in charge and the CFO serving as a competent director.
In order to ensure the effectiveness of dialogue, a dedicated IR department has been established, and a cross-sectional structure for sharing and disclosure of IR information has been constructed through positive cooperation with the Legal, Corporate Planning, Corporate Accounting & Finance, General Affairs, Public Relations, Management of Group Companies, CSR, and other departments. In addition, an information-handling officer has been appointed to strive to ensure disclosure of information in a timely and appropriate manner.
As measures to promote opportunities for dialogue aside from individual meetings, information meetings are held every quarter, with the CEO or CFO providing explanations. Additionally, overseas IR roadshows in the United States, Europe, and Asia are conducted at least once a year.
Information on views and business issues uncovered through dialogue with shareholders are periodically relayed to senior management and relevant departments to communicate, share, and feed the same back to management.
In order to control insider information, the “Nitto Denko Group Regulations To Prevent Insider Dealings” have been established to ensure infallible information control. Meetings with shareholders and investors to be interviewed are limited during the “quiet periods” immediately prior to the announcement of financial results.
