Relations with Shareholders and Investors
We strive to ensure the timely disclosure of corporate and financial information and to ensure fair returns to shareholders.
Communication with Shareholders and Investors
In addition to our annual general meeting of shareholders, we conduct results presentations, facility tours and other events for institutional investors and sell-side analysts. Results presentations make use of visual aids to deepen understanding of our operations, operating results and our forecasts for the future. Facility tours are designed to enhance understanding of what we do and include regularly scheduled visits to both production facilities and research laboratories. In March 2019, we conducted a tour of the Chiba Sanso Center Co., Ltd. with the aim of introducing shareholders and investors to our industrial gases business. In September 2018, we conducted a tour of subsidiary Japan Fine Products Co., Ltd.’s Mie Plant in cooperation with Mitsubishi Chemical Holdings. We also organized a joint IR seminar with Mitsubishi Chemical Holdings and Tanabe Co., Ltd., another member of the Mitsubishi Chemical Holdings Group.
We also released a number of regular publications for shareholders and investors, including full-term and interim business reports and a single integrated report that provides both financial information, such as that related to business strategies and operations, and non-financial information, including that related to environmental protection, social contribution and corporate governance, with the aim of giving readers an accurate overall picture of the Taiyo Nippon Sanso Group.
Enhancing our corporate website is another key focus of our efforts. As well as various key documents, the website provides a compact outline of our various businesses in a compact, easy-to-understand form and other content that give even first timers a clear view of the Group and its activities.

Ensuring Fair Returns to Shareholders
Having positioned the provision of fair returns to shareholders as a key management responsibility, we strive to maintain stable dividends, while at the same time ensuring our dividend payout ratio fairly reflects our business performance. Guided by the strategic policy set forth in our medium-term management plan, we will continue working to enhance our performance.
