Responsibility to Shareholders and Investors
We make use of various opportunities to strengthen communication with our shareholders and investors, such as presentations for investors and one-on-one dialog. Furthermore, we actively carry out IR initiatives on an ongoing basis, including timely disclosure of business strategies, financial information and other relevant information, and enhancement of information disclosure. We receive valuable feedback through constructive dialog with our shareholders and investors, which we pass on to our management and relevant departments as appropriate and apply to initiatives to achieve sustainable growth and improvement of our corporate value in the medium and long term.
