Risk Management

In the event of a crisis, we believe it is important to manage relavant information in an appropriate manner and as outlined by corporate organizational structures.  The internal rules for crisis management identify potential risks to the company and, in the event that these risks materialize, they prescribe in-house responses such as the setting up of an emergency headquarters and the management of information, including reporting systems. In addition, with regard to the disclosure of related information outside the company, after analyzing the impact on the business of the emergency, the president or the executive officer in charge of PR & IR shall decide a media response, while timely disclosure to investors concerning the event will be dealt with under the timely disclosure procedures for corporate information.

Moreover, crises at subsidiaries shall be handled in the same way as if they had occurred at the Company itself.
