Meitec Group Disclosure Policy
MEITEC CORPORATION (the Company) discloses information to its shareholders, investors, and other stakeholders, taking care to ensure that such disclosure is fair, accurate, timely, and continuous. It avoids disclosing material non-public information only to specific third parties, thereby ensuring that its disclosure of information is fair in terms of both content and timing.
2.Information Disclosure Standards
The Company discloses information in accordance with the Companies Act, the Financial Instruments and Exchange Law, and other laws and regulations, as well as the rules on timely disclosure of corporate information prescribed in the securities listing regulations of the stock exchange on which the Company is listed (the Timely Disclosure Rules).
The Company promptly discloses any decisions, events, or financial results that could have a significant impact on investment decisions in accordance with the standards contained in the Timely Disclosure Rules. Whenever possible, the Company also actively discloses additional information not subject to the Timely Disclosure Rules. Such information includes details of management strategies and challenges regarded as helpful in making investment decisions, as well as information regarding risks and governance (including non-financial information).
The Company does not disclose personal information, customer information, information that infringes on the rights of associated parties, or any other information of a similar nature.
3.Methods of Information Disclosure
The Company discloses information subject to the Timely Disclosure Rules on the Tokyo Stock Exchange’s Timely Disclosure network (TDnet), and as soon as possible thereafter posts the information on its own website.
Information not subject to the Timely Disclosure Rules is also posted on the Company’s website or disclosed by other means.
The Company strives to disclose and explain information to as many people as possible, and to make it easy to understand, by using a range of means to communicate such information, including results presentations, press conferences, and printed materials.
The Company also endeavors to produce English-language versions of its disclosure documents, distributing them primarily via its website.
If a Company officer or employee (in the case of employees, only applicable to those who perform the duties of communicating information to parties involved in any transaction with the Company (including institutional investors, analysts and so forth)) unintentionally communicates undisclosed information pertaining to information subject to the Timely Disclosure Rules or financial results information that may have material impact on the prices of securities in the course of work, the Company shall disclose the relevant information in a timely and appropriate manner in accordance with the Fair Disclosure Rule that has been established by the Financial Instruments and Exchange Act.
4.Prevention of Insider Trading
The Company strives to prevent insider trading by appropriately managing critical operational or management information relating to the MEITEC Group in accordance with its internal rules. The Company makes all Group officers, employees, and other associated parties aware of the intent behind these rules, and provides continuous education to promote understanding of the rules to ensure that they are consistently applied.
5.Treatment of Earnings Forecasts and Forward-looking Statements
Earnings forecasts, estimates, business plans, targets, policies, business strategies and other information released by the Company excluding historical facts are forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements are based on information obtained by the time they were publicly released, and on plans, expectations, and judgments deriving from certain assumptions deemed reasonable. Actual performance and results may therefore differ significantly from these forward-looking statements due to a range of risks and uncertainties.
To ensure that disclosure is fair, a quiet period is designated from the day after each quarterly settlement date until the day on which the results are announced. During the quiet period the Company refrains from making comments or answering questions regarding its financial results or earnings projections. However, if during the quiet period the Company comes to expect that its earnings forecasts will differ significantly from actual results, or if a material event requiring disclosure occurs, the Company discloses the relevant information in accordance with the standards prescribed in the Timely Disclosure Rules.
7.Development of an Internal Structure
The Company creates and maintains a structure to apply its disclosure policy properly and to disclose information in a timely and appropriate manner in accordance with the Timely Disclosure Rules.
8.Other Points of Note
The MEITEC Group does not take responsibility for, or affirm, any information regarding the Group deriving from third parties, including forecasts relating to its financial results or business, or endorsements and similar statements.
The purpose of this website is to enable users to understand the MEITEC Group’s policies and management information, among other subjects. It is in no way intended as a solicitation to invest in securities. Decisions regarding investments should be made based on the user’s own judgment.
Information is posted on this website as soon as possible after it is disclosed, but such posting may be delayed due to technical difficulties, time required for preparation, or other circumstances.
Some of the information disclosed on TDnet in accordance with the Timely Disclosure Rules may not be posted on this website. Additionally, information disclosed by other means may sometimes be expressed in a different way on the website to make it easier to understand.
