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.

Measures for Our Stakeholders

In starting CSR activities in 2009, the Fujikura Group clarified the relationships between the Group and society (its stakeholders) based on the following idea of the Fujikura Group CSR Committee chaired by the president of Fujikura Ltd.: “Companies cannot survive on their own without society. We need to detect and respond to social changes toward the future through communication with society.” Specifically, the CSR Committee and the working teams under the Committee discussed the Group-stakeholder relationships and, as a result, we classified stakeholders who were strongly related to our corporate activities into the following six categories: customers; employees including their families; shareholders and investors; business partners (suppliers); local communities; and governments and the environment. For the fulfillment of our CSR, it is indeed essential for us to disseminate information about our corporate activities in a timely manner to these important stakeholders and incorporate their expectations and opinions into the management of the Group.
Accordingly, the Group will globally dispatch information mainly about its responsibilities and tasks to be fulfilled for its stakeholders. We will also foster new measures for our management priorities and CSR activities, while checking whether we are making appropriate responses to the opinions and ideas expressed by individual stakeholders.

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.

Information Disclosure for Investors

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.

Panel exhibition on creatures living in the Fujikura-Kiba Millennium Woods

Fujikura displays a panel in the lobby of the head office showing photos of creatures living in the bio-garden. Many visitors who saw the panel asked, “Were these photos all taken here in the Kiba district?” and were surprised at the great ecosystems of the Kiba district, which is located in the city center.
