Policy on constructive dialogue with shareholders

Policy on constructive dialogue with shareholders

1. Basic Policy

GS Yuasa Corporation engages in constructive dialogue with shareholders and investors to promote an understanding of its business strategies and management policies among all stakeholders, and to help drive sustained growth and medium- to long-term corporate value.

  1. (1) Dialogue framework
    GS Yuasa Corporation actively responds to IR enquiries from shareholders and investors, and proactively organizes results briefing sessions and conferences under the supervision of the General Manager of the Corporate Office. Also, the Corporate Office (those in charge of public relations/investor relations) takes a leading role in aiding dialogue and encourages constructive dialogue whilst collaborating with the relevant departments as necessary.
  2. (2) Feedback of opinions and requests to management
    Opinions and requests garnered from shareholders and investors through dialogue are relayed to the management team when deemed necessary, and are also reported to the Board of Directors (twice a year) and management hearing meetings (every quarter), which are supervised by the president and attended by other officers. Every effort is made to reflect these opinions and requests into management and business activities.
  3. (3) Prevention of insider information leaks
    The Company has established four weeks prior to earnings announcements as a quiet period to limit dialogue prior to the announcement of financial results, and also limits the number of persons to whom information can be sent during dialogue with shareholders and investors to prevent the leakage of insider information.
