In addition, we will proactively and fairly provide shareholders and investors with the information that is considered important or useful for deepening their understanding of our company, even if said information is not mentioned in relevant laws or regulations or the Timely Disclosure Regulations. We will not disclose personal information, information on customers, or any information that would infringe the rights of related people.
(2) Methods for disclosing information
The information mentioned in the Timely Disclosure Regulations will be disclosed via the timely disclosure network (Tdnet) of Tokyo Stock Exchange in accordance with said regulations.

(4) Handling of earnings forecasts and future information
The earnings forecasts, future outlooks, strategies, goals, etc. we disclose are related to future prospects except those related to past or present facts. These are based on currently available information and plans, expectations, and judgments under certain assumptions considered reasonable. Accordingly, actual results may be different from the disclosed earnings forecasts, etc. due to various uncertainties over economic situations, etc.
(5) Silent period
Our company defined the period from the day following the last date of an accounting period (or a quarter) to the date of announcement of financial results as a quiet period, to prevent the leakage of financial information (including quarterly one) and secure the fairness of information disclosure. During each quiet period, we will refrain from answering questions and giving comments about financial results and earnings forecasts. However, if an earnings forecast is likely to be revised considerably during a quiet period, we will announce said matter in accordance with the Timely Disclosure Regulations.

Our company makes efforts to develop and enrich in-house systems, in order to disclose information appropriately in accordance with our disclosure policy, relevant laws and regulations, and the Timely Disclosure Regulations.
