We are exerting our strongest efforts to provide information through various media to foster stakeholder understanding of and trust in our activities while incorporating feedback and other information we receive into our daily IR activities and management.
Information Disclosure Policy
- Attitude toward Information Disclosure
We believe that gaining the understanding and trust of our stakeholders through information disclosure is essential for achieving the Taiheiyo Cement Group Mission. We also recognize that the active disclosure of information is part of our corporate social responsibility.
- Basic Policy
We disclose corporate information appropriately and in a timely manner, on a fair and equitable basis.
- Scope of Disclosure
We disclose information in compliance with the Financial Instruments and Exchange Act, other relevant laws, securities exchange rules, and other regulations. We also actively disclose information we deem useful to stakeholders.
- Method of Disclosure
We use the most appropriate disclosure methods, including news releases, our company website, various publications, and briefing sessions. We use the Timely Disclosure network (TDnet) of the Tokyo Stock Exchange, where the company is listed, to disclose information that falls under the stock exchange's security listing regulations. After disclosure via TDnet, we promptly post the information on our website.
- Systems Development
We make efforts to develop and enhance internal systems for disclosing information in accordance with this policy. We also attempt to keep officers and employees informed of this policy.
- Quiet Period
In order to prevent leakage of financial information and to ensure fairness, we have adopted a quiet period from approximately one week before the closing date of each fiscal period to the date of the announcement of financial results. We will refrain from answering questions or commenting on financial results during this period. For inquiries regarding information that has already been released, we will respond to questions and receive interviews as an exception, even during the quiet period.
We are committed to disclosing information about our group in an appropriate and timely manner in order to enable our shareholders and investors to accurately determine our group's corporate value. We hold financial results briefings for securities analysts and institutional investors twice each year to directly provide information on business performance and management policies, and also respond to individual follow-up meetings as needed. We also actively communicate with institutional investors by participating in IR conferences by securities companies. Facility tours at production sites (factory, quarries, etc.) are also held at the request of securities analysts and institutional investors although in FY2023, due to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, these were suspended.
