With respect to information covered by the Timely Disclosure Regulations, the Group will make disclosures via TDnet, the Timely Disclosure Network System provided by the Tokyo Stock Exchange, as well as materials provided to the media (press releases). Further, in the interest of providing information in a timely and equitable manner, any information released via TDnet or press releases will also be posted here on the Group website with all due haste. Information not covered by the Timely Disclosure Regulations will be disclosed in an appropriate manner, in the spirit of the principle of timely disclosure.
For each three-week period preceding the release of the Group's quarterly financial results, the Group enters into a quiet period during which the Group does not comment on the outlook of the financial results to investors or the media. During this period, the Group refrains from holding individual meetings or answering questions in regard to financial results and business forecasts. However, should an important event occur during this period, the Group will disclose it in a timely manner.
