CSR

Together with Shareholders and Investors

The Toyota Boshoku group actively promotes efforts to disclose information and communicate in an appropriate and timely manner so as to earn the trust and support of shareholders and investors.

Enhancement of corporate value and reinforcement of information disclosure

The Toyota Boshoku group has stated in our disclosure policy that we are committed to “disclosing information required by shareholders, investors, business partners and local communities in a timely and appropriate manner as well as to carrying out public information-sharing activities that earn the trust of society.” In this sense, we are striving to disclose information in an accurate, timely and fair manner. In order to ensure the appropriate disclosure of information, we strictly manage corporate information and are working actively on disclosure in the Information Disclosure Committee, which is comprised of members from Toyota Boshoku’s External Affairs & Public Relations Division, Accounting & Finance Division, Legal Division and the Corporate Planning Division.

In continuing to place priority on providing shareholders with long-term stable dividends, annual cash dividends of 30 yen per share were paid for the current fiscal year.

Briefings for analysts and investors

The Toyota Boshoku group regularly holds results briefings with the Company president and executive officers in order to aid analysts and institutional investors in understanding Toyota Boshoku’s financial situation and business strategies. In September 2015, we held a round-table conference with analysts to deepen their understanding of the new president and our future management. This included a Q&A session with the president and executive vice presidents and a tour of the Sanage Plant. Additionally, we are actively pursuing communication with shareholders and investors through various occasions, including small meetings and interviews with analysts and institutional investors as well as visiting institutional investors.

In fiscal 2016, we are planning to take part in conferences and hold individual meetings for institutional investors outside Japan as well as seminars for individual investors. In addition, we plan to hold tours of plants and facilities with the aim of furthering understanding of Toyota Boshoku’s business activities among investors.
