Always at the forefront of the times, the BANDAI NAMCO Group aims to be “the leading Innovator in Global Entertainment“ that can continue to provide people of all ages around the world with “dreams, fun, and inspiration.“ Naturally we want to be “the leading Innovator in Global Entertainment” for our investors as well. We view our website as an important tool for the impartial and up-to-date communication of information to the investment community. We will therefore be posting as much information as possible that in our opinion adds to investors' understanding of our group.
1.Benchmark for disclosure of information
The Company recognizes that disclosing appropriate and reliable corporate information at an appropriate time and in a fair manner, without concealing information, is an important management issue to ensure management transparency, and is essential to gain the understanding and trust of all stakeholders. To this end, in addition to complying with laws and regulations such as the Companies Act and the Financial Instruments and Exchange Act, as well as the regulations set by Tokyo Stock Exchange, the Company shall proactively disclose information beyond that required by laws and regulations which the Company determines to be important for shareholders and other stakeholders. In disclosing corporate information, the Company shall disclose appropriate information, including its IR policy, in a timely manner in accordance with the regulations stipulated in relevant laws and regulations such as the Financial Instruments and Exchange Act, as well as the regulations established by Tokyo Stock Exchange, and also aim to ensure the promptness and fairness of information such as by disclosing information on the Company’s website.
2.Strengthening IR opportunities
We want to be a highly transparent company that can communicate our management strategies and business policies clearly to shareholders, investors and other stakeholders. For that reason, we will more fully develop the occasions where our management will talk directly with domestic and overseas individual investors, institutional investors, and securities analysts, for example through company presentation sessions and result presentation sessions.
3.Thorough internal application of IR policy
From time to time, we will test all of our employees to check that they are completely familiarized with its IR policy. The members at BANDAI NAMCO Holdings Inc. respond to all inquiries received from individual investors, institutional investors, and securities analysts, in order to protect the Group and its employees in their legal responsibilities, for example under the Securities and Exchange Law.
4.Prevention of insider trading
We have established internal regulations on information management and prevention of insider trading in order to prevent insider trading from happening. We have also decided to implement trainings such as e-learning via our group intranet for our officers and employees.
5.IR quiet periods
We employ a practice of IR quiet periods in order to ensure fairness in information disclosure. During these periods, our officers and employees refrain from making any comments or holding individual meetings or corporate presentation sessions about our business prospects, results, or projections to specific investors or media.
