Thoroughly meeting stakeholder requirements
Conforming to its basic policy of proactively offering information to realize transparent management practices, OMRON ensures compliance with the statutory Timely Disclosure Rules. To meet increasing demands of shareholders and other stakeholders, OMRON has established its own information disclosure standards notably stricter than these rules.
For cases that need to be individually judged for disclosure, the Information Disclosure Committee, a cross-divisional organization consisting of members from different divisions, determines the information that should be disclosed from a multi-faceted perspective.
Summary Report of Timely Disclosure System (excerpts)
1. Basic stance on timely disclosure
In accordance with its basic stance of proactively offering information with the aim of enhancing transparency of its management practices, OMRON undertakes timely disclosure of important corporate information to its stakeholders based on the following policies:
- With respect to disclosure of information, OMRON not only complies with Japan’s Securities and Exchange Law (SEL) and the Tokyo Stock Exchange’s (TSE) Timely Disclosure Rules but also meets its own standards so as to fulfill the increasing demand from investors and other stakeholders. These standards are more exacting than the SEL requirements and TSE rules.
- With respect to qualitative information that requires individual judgment for disclosure, OMRON promptly convenes an Information Disclosure Executive Committee (hereinafter referred to as the "Executive Committee") meeting to discuss and determine the necessity and content of disclosure.
- With respect to important corporate information, OMRON promptly reports such information to the TSE and releases it to at least two media organization so as to ensure fair disclosure to all stakeholders.
2. Internal system for timely disclosure
- Operating system for timely disclosure
OMRON has set up an Executive Committee to determine whether a decision made or an incident that occurred within the OMRON Group corresponds to a matter that requires timely disclosure in accordance with TSE rules or OMRON’s internal standards. Any matter that was determined by the Executive Committee to be disclosed is first reported to the person in charge of information management. As instructed by the person in charge of information management, the investor relations department conducts timely disclosure of the said matter on the TSE’s Timely Disclosure Network (TDnet*). To ensure that the Executive Committee accesses all important corporate information without omissions, the Committee is informed of the said information by following procedures 1and 2:
- Should a business division/Head Office administrative division conclude that an important incident within that division corresponds to information that should be disclosed based on its own judgment, or if there is a question whether it corresponds to information to be disclosed, the relevant division should so report to the Executive Committee.
- With respect to important matters that are submitted to a meeting of the Board of Directors or the Executive Council, which are tasked to discuss and determine important business matters, the BOD office or the Executive Council office should report such matters to the Executive Committee.
- ※ TDnet (Timely Disclosure Network): A system operated by the Tokyo Stock Exchange to enable the rapid and extensive conveyance of timely disclosed information.
