Disclosure Policy

1.Basic Stance of Disclosure

Underpinned by transparency and integrity, Socionext strives to disclose information in a timely manner in accordance with rules governing such corporate information disclosure stipulated in the securities listing regulations of the Tokyo Stock Exchange and in the Financial Instruments and Exchange Act and other relevant regulations. Socionext also seeks to abide by the aims of the fair disclosure rules of the Financial Instruments and Exchange Act by taking a proactive approach to the disclosure of other corporate information that may not be covered by these regulations and timely disclosure rules, but that will help people gain a deeper understanding of the company.

2.Methods Employed for Disclosure

Information required by the timely disclosure rules is filed on the Timely Disclosure Network (TDnet) operated by the Tokyo Stock Exchange, and financial reporting and other securities documents are filed on the Electronic Disclosure for Investors' Network system (EDINET) of the Financial Services Agency (FSA). Following disclosure, materials containing the disclosed information may be made available on the company website if deemed necessary.

3.Prevention of Insider Trading

Socionext has put rules in place to ensure fair information disclosure, the prevention of insider trading, and that due care is taken with the handling of important corporate information. This is accompanied by education and the provision of appropriate information to executives and staff.

4.Forward-looking Statements

Any plans, forecasts, estimates, projections, or other information relating to the future published by the company is based on the company’s judgement and thinking at the time of publication. Accordingly, actual financial performance and other such outcomes may differ from those projected due to uncertainties such as economic conditions.

5.Quiet Period

To ensure fairness and prevent the leaking of financial information, Socionext imposes an information blackout that runs from the day after the final day of each quarterly reporting period until the date of results publication. During this period, we will decline to respond to any questions or comments relating to results or performance projections. However, any disclosures required by the timely disclosure rules or other regulations will continue to be made in a timely manner, regardless of whether this occurs during a quiet period.
