Corporate PhilosophyInformation Disclosure Policy

1. Basic Approach

To ensure that our corporate activities are transparent, and that stakeholders such as our customers, our shareholders, investors, and local communities have a correct understanding of and confidence in our business, Meidensha Corporation (hereafter "the Company") and its group (hereafter "Meiden Group") disclose their corporate overview at appropriate times in accordance with a pre-established set of rules.
To forge good relationships of trust with our shareholders and investors in particular, we implement communication measures based on voluntary disclosure of information.

2. Criteria for information disclosure

  1. (1)We disclose information as promptly as possible in accordance with the Financial Instruments and Exchange Law and other relevant laws and regulations (hereafter "Laws and Regulations"), and "Rules on Timely Disclosure of Corporate Information by Issuers of Listed Securities" (hereafter "Timely Disclosure Rules") set by the Tokyo Stock Exchange, etc.
    With regard to information that cannot be disclosed for reasons of our business operation, we clarify why disclosure is not possible.
  2. (2)Even when Laws and Regulations do not apply to particular information, and/or the information does not meet the criteria for disclosure stated in the Timely Disclosure Rules, we actively and fairly disclose the information if it may help our shareholders and investors gain a better understanding of the Company and the Meiden Group.
