This is in keeping with the Company’s commitment to valuing communications with shareholders and communities, and to disclosing information in a timely fashion, as laid out in our Principles of Business Conduct.
The Company provides disclosure in conformity with the Financial Instruments and Exchange Act and all other applicable laws and regulations, as well as the Timely Disclosure Rules stipulated by the Tokyo Stock Exchange.

These forward-looking statements are predictions about the future that reflect management’s judgment based on information available at the time of disclosure and are subject to uncertainties. Accordingly, actual results may differ materially from forecasts due to various factors.
The Company has established a quiet period beginning from the day after the end of each quarter through to the date of the earnings announcement for each quarter, in order to prevent the leakage of earnings information and ensure fairness. During this period, the Company refrains from answering questions or addressing media inquiries about its earnings. However, when there are occurrences of material fact that should be disclosed during the quiet period, disclosure is provided based on laws and regulations and Timely Disclosure standards. Additionally, the Company may make exceptions when it receives requests for the following:

- Explanations concerning the Company’s business activities, management plans and related matters, without alluding to progress towards business forecasts, for occasions such as visits to Japan by overseas institutional investors.
