IR Policy

1. Disclosure Standards
JGC discloses information accurately in a fair and timely manner in accordance with the "Disclosure of Corporate Affairs and Other Related Matters" chapter of the Financial Instruments and Exchange Act, and with the "Timely Disclosure Rules for Issuers of Listed Negotiable Securities or Valuable Instruments" (hereafter "Timely Disclosure Rules") laid out by the Tokyo Stock Exchange. In addition, regarding the content of financial results briefings and other information not under the jurisdiction of the Timely Disclosure Rules, JGC has a policy of disclosing appropriate information to investors upon request, in a fair and thorough manner, to the best of our ability.
2. Methods of Information Disclosure
Information falling under the jurisdiction of the Timely Disclosure Rules will be disclosed, as specified in the rules, over the Tokyo Stock Exchange information disclosure system (TDnet), following an explanation to the Tokyo Stock Exchange. Information that does not fall under the jurisdiction of the Timely Disclosure Rules shall be disclosed at an appropriate time, by an appropriate method, in an accurate and fair manner, with due consideration for its dissemination to general investors. Therefore, we request that investors who wish to confirm information disclosed by JGC should refer to the information posted on the company website, TDnet, and the like.
3. Future Prospects
In addition to the performance forecast submitted by JGC to the Tokyo Stock Exchange, JGC may also provide guidance on its future prospects to investors and securities analysts, so they can publish their own forecasts. In addition, lectures, Q&A sessions, documents published by the company, information posted on the company website, etc. may include information about current plans, future prospects and strategies. In either case, any information which is not recorded historical fact is a forecast for the future based on set preconditions and the judgment of the company management based on the information available at the time the prediction was made. Therefore, when investigating JGC's performance, business value, etc. we request that analysts and investors refrain from relying solely on future forecasts and forward-looking statements.
Since actual business performance depends on numerous different factors, in some cases, actual results may differ significantly from predicted results. Factors with a major influence on actual business performance include (1) economic circumstances surrounding the company in the domestic and worldwide market, (2) domestic and worldwide energy demand, (3) currency exchange rates, and others. Factors affecting business performance are not limited to the three items mentioned above.
4. Regarding the Period of Silence
Before financial results briefings, JGC establishes a "period of silence," during which we refrain from making comments or answering questions regarding financial results, so as to avoid information disclosures which could influence our stock prices while we are preparing the data to be presented at the financial results briefing. However, in the event that actual results deviate significantly from expected results during the "period of silence," we will disclose the information appropriately via a press release.
