Communications with Shareholders and Investors
Based on the principle of “Appropriate Disclosure of Company Information” laid out in the SCREEN Group CSR Charter, the SCREEN Group has established and published the SCREEN Group Disclosure Policy, aimed at helping shareholders, investors, and all stakeholders to better understand the Group. The disclosure policy serves as a foundation for efforts to ensure that disclosure is transparent, fair, ongoing, timely, and appropriate.
Aiming to promote constructive engagement with shareholders and investors, the SCREEN Group properly discloses information likely to be of use in furthering their understanding of the Group, including information not required by such laws and regulations as the Financial Instruments and Exchange Act or by the Timely Disclosure Rules of the Tokyo Stock Exchange (TSE).
Investor Relations: Constructive Dialogue with Shareholders and Investors
Dialogue with Shareholders and Investors We strive to give our shareholders and investors a greater understanding of the SCREEN Group by communicating our management, business, and financial position in a timely, accurate, and clear-cut manner. We also provide opinions and other feedback from shareholders and investors to management as appropriate, for example, reporting such feedback to the Board of Directors at least once per quarter, to maximize corporate value. In IR meetings and conferences following earnings announcements, our CEO, CFO, IR manager and other management members participate in interviews and dialogues with the voting representatives of institutional investors (SR meetings) centered on ESG-related themes. When it comes to fair disclosure, we strive to expand the range of materials we provide, to provide them in a timely manner, and, when possible, to prepare them in two languages (Japanese and English) when published on our website. Moreover, we send questionnaires to institutional investors and analysts once a year to identify where we can improve to raise the quality of our IR activities. Moreover, at the 82nd Ordinary General Meeting of Shareholders (June 23, 2023), as in the previous year, we provided a live stream over the Internet of the proceedings along with a management briefing held on the same day. In addition, given the recent low COVID-19 infection rates, we restarted in-person events. In March 2023, we held a hybrid in-person and online factory tour for institutional investors and analysts to introduce the new S3-4 factory, which had just begun operations. Through our IR activities, we seek to build good relations with all our long-term investors, focusing on maintaining an appropriate share price and creating a balanced shareholder portfolio.
