IR Policy

Our information disclosure policies regarding IR activities

Basic Stance on Information Disclosure

SEGA SAMMY implements proactive IR activities in line with the following basic policy set in the Group’s CSR Charter: "We at the SEGA SAMMY Group will conduct business from a global perspective, aiming for continuous growth and maximization of corporate value. Through a reasonable level of dividends as well as timely and accurate information disclosure, we aim for transparency in management to live up to the expectations of our shareholders and greater society."

Information Disclosure Standards

SEGA SAMMY conducts information disclosure in accordance with the Financial Instruments and Exchange Law and other laws and ordinances, as well as the "Regulations Governing the Timely Disclosure of Corporate Information by Issuer of Listed Securities" (hereafter, the "Timely Disclosure Regulations") laid down by the Tokyo Stock Exchange (TSE). In addition, we also proactively conduct the voluntary disclosure of information not covered by laws or by the Timely Disclosure Regulations should such information be deemed to have a large impact on the investment decisions of investors.

Information Disclosure Methods

Based on the Timely Disclosure Regulations, we disclose information in a timely manner through the Timely Disclosure Network (TDnet) provided by the TSE. We also voluntarily disclose information that is deemed to have a large impact on the investment decisions of investors through TDnet. While we conduct both timely information disclosure and voluntary information disclosure through TDnet, we also publish disclosed information on SEGA SAMMY's website.
SEGA SAMMY also aims to deliver timely and accurate information to all overseas investors. After conducting timely information disclosure and voluntary information disclosure within Japan, the content is promptly translated and published on our English website.
Furthermore, in order to deliver disclosure content in a prompt, accurate and impartial manner to a wide variety of investors, SEGA SAMMY considers the delivery of information through the media. Each quarter at the time of our earnings announcement, we hold a press conference for the media and are dedicated to the delivery of information through the content of media reports.

Quiet Period

In order to prevent the leakage of information that could affect share prices during the preparation of financial statements, SEGA SAMMY Group designates the four weeks preceding the announcement of financial statements as a quiet period, and refrains from making comments or answering questions relating to financial statements. However, in the event that results are seen to go significantly against expectations, SEGA SAMMY Group will take appropriate measures to disclose information through a press release.
