Systems and Initiatives for Dialogue with Shareholders
To promote active dialogue with shareholders and investors, we have appointed the chief executive officer as a person in charge of the system, and appointed a director to supervise overall activities as well as setting up an IR office as a dedicated department. We also engage in investor relations activities by exchanging information and organically collaborating with related departments, such as public relations, accounting, business administration, legal affairs, general affairs, sales, and manufacturing.
The Company designates an officer for managing overall activities involved with shareholder dialogue and has established the IR Office as a dedicated department for these activities that works with related departments. The views of shareholders obtained through these dialogue activities are shared and utilized, and provided as feedback to management and related divisions through the distribution of reports at meeting bodies when necessary. The Company hosts presentations of financial results and telephone conferences of financial results for institutional investors and securities analysts, and regularly organizes visits to investors outside of Japan.
At the same time, the Company makes efforts to disclose information through its corporate website.
In addition, we pay attention to the management of insider information in accordance with the "MinebeaMitsumi Group regulations on insider trading prevention", so that important facts that have not yet been disclosed are not communicated in our dialogue with shareholders.
