Methods of Information Disclosure

TDnet (Timely Disclosure Network) is used to publish the disclosure of information that is subject to timely disclosure under timely disclosure requirements. IKK Group regards its IR website as an important source of information sharing with shareholders and investors. Even when there is no obligation of disclosure under timely disclosure requirements, our policy is to actively disclose any information that is thought to have an impact on investment decisions by investors.

Quiet Period

To prevent financial information from being leaked and ensure fairness, IKK Group maintains a quiet period from the final day of each quarter to the time when results for that quarter are published. During this period we refrain from releasing comments or responding to inquiries regarding our financial information for that quarter. In the event that results are expected to diverge significantly from previously published performance forecasts, we will release such information as appropriate in accordance with timely disclosure requirements.
