6. Management of insider information
The Company will comply with internal rules on the management of insider information and will not leak undisclosed important information to a third party (including the officers and employees of the Company) until the Company makes a timely and appropriate disclosure.
The Company will manage undisclosed important information not to transmit it to shareholders and investors by establishing rules such as having a dialogue with shareholders and investors always with more than one person when having it on an individual basis.
If the Company has disclosed undisclosed important information at a venue for dialogue with shareholders and investors and other occasions contrary to its original intention, the Company will immediately disclose it in a timely manner. Similarly, if undisclosed important information that requires timely disclosure is disclosed by a third party prior to the disclosure by the Company, the Company will immediately disclose it in a timely manner.
However, this will not apply to cases where making prompt disclosure is deemed to be inappropriate. In this case, the Company will take measures in accordance with related laws and regulations.
In order to prevent the leak of financial information and other information that would impact on the stock price, CTC maintains a "silent period" from the day after the quarterly closing date until the announcement of the financial results is made. During this period, the Company refrains from replying to questions or commenting on the earnings and forecasts announcement. However, in the event that results are expected to substantially differ from forecasts, CTC will make appropriate announcements based on the timely disclosure rules.
