Information Disclosure and Communication

Information Disclosure and Communication

Fujikura Grpup is working to increase its corporate value through communication, specifically by providing all its stakeholders with correct corporate information in a prompt, accurate, and fair manner and helping them understand the corporate brand concept, which is based on the Corporate Philosophy MVCV.
In particular, we are making efforts to ensure speedy information disclosure via the Tokyo Stock Exchange and through our own press conferences. In our IR web pages, we post our schedule for quarterly information disclosure, data on quarterly performance results, and information on the Mid-Term Business Plan, new business projects, R&D results, the launch of new subsidiaries, and others both in Japanese and English, and also in Chinese.

Investor Relation

As part of our IR activities, we hold quarterly briefings on our financial results for institutional investors and securities analysts in Japan. At the briefings held in the middle and end of each fiscal year, top managers themselves explain changes in the business performance and the reasons. In addition, these investors and analysts are invited to an annual briefing on the Mid-Term Business Plan, which is formulated for the sustainable growth of the Company. The President and the director in charge of IR also travel overseas to have meetings with local institutional investors and securities analysts in Europe, and the United States. The executives also proactively participate in seminars held for foreign institutional investors in Japan, deeming it important to have dialogues with such investors.
For general shareholders and personal investors, we disclose up-to-date information promptly on our website. Our Investor Relations Group serves as the contact for inquiries about our business performance disclosure schedules and performance forecasts.

Renewal of the CSR website

We have renewed our external CSR website by categorizing the information posted on it in line with the core subjects of the ISO 26000 international standard on social responsibility. On the homepage, which used to contain a lot of text information, we now post more photos to make it more intelligible. Moreover at the website, we have included the “Highlight” section to collectively introduce the topics for which we receive a lot of inquiries.

Response to a CSR audit

We responded to a CSR audit carried out by one of our customers. The main product factory of the customer (precision equipment manufacturer) suffered great damage due to the flooding in Thailand in 2011. Learning lessons from the disaster, which caused fraction of its supply chain, the manufacturer decided to accelerate the measures to address four critical challenges, including the stable supply of its products on its responsibility. As part of this effort, the company performed an audit on about 100 suppliers to the company, including Fujikura, in the form of a questionnaire survey. In the survey, we replied to 80 questions asked on 10 themes, such as the status of CSR measures and the internal manufacturing system.

Panel exhibition of photos depicting the damage caused by the flooding in Thailand

The flooding in Thailand in October 2011 caused unprecedentedly severe damage to the Fujikura Group. Specifically, nine manufacturing bases of the Group in Thailand were flooded. Local employees returned to the bases after the floodwater receded were shocked at the damage caused to their facilities. Subsequently, they made untiring efforts to restore operations at the facilities. Fujikura held a panel exhibition of the several hundreds of photos taken by these employees in the lobby of the head office in June 2012, in order not to forget the disaster and communicate the experience to younger generations. The exhibition was subsequently held at all other sites of the company in Japan.
