Initiatives for Our Shareholders and Investors
We strive to ensure the appropriate disclosure of information whenever necessary, and actively conduct financial results briefing as well as company information sessions for indivisual investors. These represent our efforts to achieve diverse forms of mutual communication.
《Results in FY2017》
Number of information sessions for personal investors held: 8 times
(including sessions for sales personnel of securities companies, IR fairs, and events)
Our basic policy is to continue providing the stable payment of dividends as based on the trends of our business performance, as a way of returning profits to our shareholders. The dividends have continued to increase every fiscal year so far.
To thank our shareholders for their continued support, we annually present a gif t of gourmet catalog equivalent to 3,000 yen to shareholders with 300 shares or more.
Furthermore, we have been sending out two sets of 3,000 yen gourmet catalogue gifts (worth 6,000 yen in all) to shareholders holding more than 300 shares for more than three consecutive years.
As one of Kumamoto earthquake and the Great East Japan Earthquake reconstruction support activities, we have set the option of donating to the Ashinaga Scholarship Society. When a shareholder selects that option, we will donate to the society the money amount equivalent to the gift of hospitality program for shareholders.
※Ashinaga Scholarship Society
Ashinaga Scholarship Society assists children who lost their parents due to disasters and diseases, etc. to go on to school by giving or lending scholarships, and provides them psychological care, in order to materially and mentally supports dreams and hopes of those children who will play important roles in the future.
On the basis of the disclosure policy, we are aiming at fair, timely and accurate information disclosure benefitting shareholders and investors to make a decision on investment. In compliance with relevant laws and regulations, we proactively disclose management strategies and financial data, etc. in order to have them understand our business activities. Information, to which the rules of timely disclosure and relevant laws and regulations, etc. are inapplicable, but which are considered helpful for investment decisions, is disclosed promptly through the Company's website, etc.
Hulic's website discloses timely and detailed information on our various activities.
In 2017, our website was selected as the “excellent website in overall ranking” in Nikko IR's All Listed Company Website Ranking 2017. In addition, our website won the bronze prize in Gómez IR's Site Ranking.
In addition to correspondences to shareholders issued semiannually, we transmit the latest topics through the IR page on our website in a timely manner. E-mails are also sent to allow shareholders to receive more timely information. Every time news about Hulic is released, we inform registrants by E-mail. (Registration is available on our website.) In the financial results briefing session, we make efforts for easy-to-understand explanations by using image materials produced with PowerPoint. On the website, materials for briefing sessions (in Japanese and English) and videos are distributed.
The 88th ordinary general meeting of shareholders was held at Hulic Head Office on March 23, 2018 with attendance of a lot of shareholders. In an effort to enliven the general meeting of shareholders, invitations to the meeting were sent out early, and we set up an electromagnetic voting method. In this meeting, we tried to explain about our business activities in an easy-to-understand way, using image materials, etc. The childcare nursery in the Head Office was opened to shareholders in order to enable those with children to take part in the meeting without worry. We will strive to have shareholders more understand Hulic through communication with them.
We are proactively working on IR activities to make ourselves better understood by individual investors. We participate in seminars and fairs, etc. for individual investors to create opportunities for more individual investors to learn about us. We will promote IR activities that provide us with opportunities to communicate directly with individual investors.
Briefing sessions on financial results (at the end of the 2nd quarter and fiscal year) are held semiannually by Hulic's top management mainly for institutional investors. We also conduct many “One on One Meetings” in Japan, through which we visit individual institutional investors to explain Hulic's business activities. Furthermore, we have proactively rolled out IR activities overseas, visiting institutional investors in Europe, the U.S., and Asia, etc. Through these activities, we endeavor to foster a deep understanding of Hulic among institutional investors.
Since March 2012, Hulic has been selected as a component for "FTSE4Good," one of SRI (socially responsible investment) indices, in recognition of CSR activities we have conducted so far and our transparent information disclosure. We will strive to create a sustainable society through our business activities, in order to continue to be a company trusted by society.
