Briefings for Individual Investors

We hold briefings for individual investors in locations throughout Japan, centered on the major cities. In these meetings, we provide a corporate overview and explain our business strategies, shareholder returns, CSR initiatives, and other topics. We also conduct factory tours for individual investors on an ad hoc basis.

Briefings for Analysts and Institutional Investors

We conduct financial results briefings each quarter, where the CFO explains performance details. At the fiscal 2017 financial results briefing in May 2018, the president also explained about the 2018 Business Plan, a three-year medium-term business plan beginning in fiscal 2018. In addition, we hold business strategy briefings, small meetings, and factory tours on an ad hoc basis.

Meetings with Overseas Investors

We visit overseas investors located in North America, Europe, and Asia, explaining our operating performance, management strategies, and other information. Several times each year, we also participate in conferences held in Japan and overseas.
