Information Disclosure Policy
To ensure that our information disclosure to our shareholders, investors, and all other stakeholders is fair, timely, and appropriate, the Mitsui Chemicals Group has established the following information disclosure policy.
1. Basic Policy on Information Disclosure
In order to maintain and develop trusting relationships with shareholders, investors, customers, suppliers, employees, local communities, and all other diverse stakeholders of the Mitsui Chemicals Group, we will provide fair and highly transparent information disclosure in a timely and appropriate manner and engage in proactive communication efforts throughout the whole of Mitsui Chemicals, including top management.
2. Standards for Information Disclosure
The Mitsui Chemicals Group will provide timely and appropriate information disclosure under the principles of transparency and fairness in accordance with the Financial Instruments and Exchange Act, all other relevant laws and ordinances, and the Tokyo Stock Exchange’s “Timely Disclosure Regulations” (the “Timely Disclosure Regulations”).
The Mitsui Chemicals Group will also proactively and fairly disclose information that we find to be important or beneficial in furthering our stakeholders’ understanding of Mitsui Chemicals, even if such information is not subject to the relevant laws and ordinances or the Timely Disclosure Regulations.
3. Methods for Information Disclosure
The Mitsui Chemicals Group will disclose the information prescribed in the Timely Disclosure Regulations through the Timely Disclosure Network (TDnet) provided by the Tokyo Stock Exchange in accordance with those regulations, after which we will promptly publish the same information on the Mitsui Chemicals website. We will also disclose information that we find to be important or beneficial through such means as publishing it on our website, even if such information is not subject to the Timely Disclosure Regulations.
4. Quiet Period
In order to prevent the leaking of financial information (including quarterly financial information) and to ensure the fairness of information disclosure, the Mitsui Chemicals Group will designate the period from the day immediately following the final day of the fiscal term to the day on which fiscal results are announced as a quiet period. During this period, Mitsui Chemicals will refrain from commenting or replying to questions on finances or expected business results.
However, if a large change in the results outlook is found to be likely during the quiet period, Mitsui Chemicals will provide public notice to that effect as appropriate in accordance with the Timely Disclosure Regulations.
5. Forward-looking statements
Information disclosed in accordance with the guidelines set forth in this policy may include forward-looking statements about the future plans, strategies, belief and performance of the Mitsui Chemicals Group as a whole and its individual consolidated companies. These forward-looking statements are not historical facts. They are expectations, estimates, forecasts, and projections based on information available to the Mitsui Chemicals Group and are subject to a number of risks, uncertainties, and assumptions, which, without limitation, include economic trends, fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates, fluctuations in prices of raw materials, competition in markets where the Group is active, personal consumption, market demand, tax systems and other legislation. As such, actual results may differ materially from those projected and the Mitsui Chemicals Group cannot guarantee that these forward-looking statements are accurate or will be achieved.
