Disclosure Policy

Ⅰ.Basic Policy

KOSÉ discloses information in a fair and transparent manner in accordance with the Financial Instruments and Exchange Act, the timely disclosure rules of securities exchanges and other guidelines. The objective is to maintain long-term relationships rooted in trust with shareholders and investors in Japan and other countries, and all other stakeholders.
KOSÉ also discloses information that is not covered by the timely disclosure rules by using the KOSÉ website and other methods in order to ensure the greatest possible fairness.

Ⅱ.Disclosure Methods

Methods used to handle and disclose material information about the KOSÉ Group comply with the Rules on the Prevention of Insider Trading established by KOSÉ.

(1) Information subject to timely disclosure rules

Material information (information about decisions, events, performance and other activities of KOSÉ and its subsidiaries) that must comply with the timely disclosure rules is defined as information about business operations, results of operations and other subjects that has a significant effect on decisions concerning securities investments. KOSÉ discloses this information by using the TDnet (Timely Disclosure Network) of the Tokyo Stock Exchange and, as needed, the KOSÉ website.

(2) Material information subject to fair disclosure rules

When providing KOSÉ’s material business and financial information that has not been disclosed but has a significant effect on investment decisions, KOSÉ discloses this information on its website in accordance with the fair disclosure rules (Article 27-36 of the Financial Instruments and Exchange Act and the Cabinet Office Order on Disclosure of Material Information).
However, if information has been released unintentionally, the information will, as a rule, be disclosed to the public immediately.

Ⅲ.Quiet Period

KOSÉ designates the period beginning on the day after the end of each fiscal year quarter and ending on the scheduled earnings announcement date as a quiet period. The purpose is to prevent leaks of information about results of operations and ensure that this information is disclosed fairly. During the quiet period, KOSÉ will not provide any comments or responses to inquiries concerning results of operations. However, information will be disclosed in accordance with the timely disclosure rules if there is an event during the quiet period that requires timely disclosure.

Ⅳ.Forward-looking Statements

Information disclosed by KOSÉ may include plans, outlooks, strategies and other forward-looking statements.
These statements are based on certain assumptions that were believed to be reasonable at the time the information was disclosed. As these statements incorporate risks and uncertainties, actual results of operations may differ from these plans, outlooks, strategies and other information.
