IR Policy and Structure
- 1. Our IR Goals and Principles
Sysmex’s basic policy on IR activities is to disclose corporate information on performance, financial position, visions of the future and management strategies in a fair, prompt, accurate and easy-to-understand manner, in an attempt to ensure accountability to shareholders and other investors and cultivate an understanding about management and business activities.
- 2. Forward-Looking Statements
Sysmex discloses corporate information in accordance with applicable laws and regulations concerning securities trading, and the Rules on Timely Disclosure of Corporate Information by the Issuer of Listed Security and the Like (“Timely Disclosure Rules”) established by the Stock Exchange. The Company also seeks to disclose corporate information not required by the Timely Disclosure Rules fairly and promptly, in order to assist shareholders and other investors in better understanding the Company.
- 3. Information Disclosure
Sysmex releases corporate information required under the Timely Disclosure Rules via TD-NET, operated by the Tokyo Stock Exchange. The Company posts information disclosed through TD-NET on its homepage as swiftly as possible. The Company also provides corporate information not subject to the Timely Disclosure Rules on its website.
- 4. IR Quiet Period
Sysmex observes a quiet period from the day after the closing date of each quarter until the release of earnings statements. During this period, the Company will refrain from replying to questions or commenting on earnings projections. However, in the event that results are expected to significantly deviate from the projections during the quiet period, the Company will release the appropriate information.
The IR & Corporate Communication Department is affiliated with the Corporate Communication Division (newly established in April 2015). The senior vice president of the Corporate Communication Division serves concurrently as the vice president of the IR & Corporate Communication Department. The IR Section has a full-time staff of five (As of April 2015).
