The MTI Group has adopted the IR policies described below for the purpose of achieving management transparency and communicating corporate information fairly and in a timely and appropriate manner.
Based on the Company’s recognition that all of its stakeholders, including its shareholders and investors (referred to below collectively as “market-related parties”), are important partners for development of its business, the MTI Group has positioned its IR activities as a vitally important communications activity for establishing a relationship of mutual trust between the MTI Group and market-related parties, and as one of the most important issues for management.
To establish a relationship of long-term mutual trust with market-related parties, the MTI Group will implement its IR activities based on the following basic policies.
For information disclosure, as a rule, the MTI Group will disclose information using the Timely Disclosure Network system (TDnet). MTI will place the information disclosed publicly using TDnet on the Company’s website promptly after confirming release of the information on the Timely Disclosure Information Listing Service.
To prevent information that might affect the Company’s stock price from being leaked during the period when the Company is preparing its financial and operating results for disclosure, the MTI Group will invoke a “quiet period” immediately prior to disclosure of financial results information, during which time it will refrain from responding to comments or questions concerning the MTI Groups financial results and from holding separate meetings and analyst briefings. The MTI Group will disclose information during the “quiet period” when appropriate, however, if it projects a substantial variance from the operating results forecast it has previously released.
