Engagement with shareholders and investors
In our communication with shareholders and investors, the Company subscribes to a spirit of fair disclosure. In addition to disclosing information fairly and at the appropriate time, management and the department in charge of investor relations cooperate in proactive initiatives to promote sustained growth and increase corporate value over the medium and long term.
In addition, we have created a system to encourage closer cooperation among departments, facilitating dialog regarding issues including management strategy, shares, investor relations, finance, and ESG. We also have appointed an officer to oversee this system.
