Together with shareholders and investors

Social background

The transparency of company management is scrutinized, making it increasingly important to disclose information in an accurate and timely manner and establish accountability. Moreover, in the financial sector as well, it is becoming more commonplace to emphasize ESG(*1) information when assessing a company’s value. Therefore, it is important for a company to be able to balance earning power with business sustainability.

*1 ESG The first letters of “Environment”, “Social” and “Governance”. Items a company must consider when rolling out its businesses as corporate responsibility.

The way of thinking by JTEKT

Aiming for highly transparent management

One of JTEKT’s Corporate Activities Standards is “Maintain close communication not only with shareholders but also with society at large, disclose corporate information properly, and strive continuously to improve company value.” Based on this concept, we guarantee transparent management, and strive to construct a long-term relationship of trust with shareholders and investors.

Main activities FY2017

Information disclosure and IR activities

JTEKT not only observes rules on legislated disclosure and timely disclosure, but also strives to increase the transparency of its management. In addition, in order to deepen understanding of JTEKT and the JTEKT group by shareholders and investors, the company also actively discloses information that is both well-timed and appropriate voluntarily and in a fair manner, through various IR activities.

End-of-period IR results briefing

The explanatory meeting for the financial results to invite analysists and investors was held in May 2018. At the event, the President, Chief of Corporate Headquarters and related officers attended and make the direct dialogues about the status of each JTEKT business. And, we endeavor to reflect feedbacks received through such dialogue on our business activities, through the annual review and revision (*2) of our mid-term management plan
