Responsibility to Our Shareholders

By maintaining and enhancing management efficiency, transparency and soundness, we strive to continuously create corporate value continuously and make ourselves even more attractive to our shareholders.

Basic Approach

Our most important challenge is to strive to strengthen our R&D activities from a long-term perspective, increase our competitiveness by developing new businesses, and maintain long-term growth of our business performance.
We are also working hard to enhance corporate governance with the aim of developing a trusted and attractive corporate culture. Management transparency and soundness are being boosted, and management monitoring and oversight functions are being strengthened through the appointment of independent outside directors and auditors.

Investor Relations

We strive to promote investor relations (IR) efforts with due consideration for our shareholders and investors, and to disseminate information regarding our business situation and our corporate policies promptly and accurately.

Shareholders' Meeting

JSR has implemented a variety of measures to facilitate the exercising of shareholders' voting rights. These include the early notification and holding of ordinary general meetings of shareholders, the adoption of a system for exercising voting rights via the Internet, participation by shareholders via electronic platforms at investment institutions for exercising voting rights, and the listing of invitations to shareholders' meetings on our website in both Japanese and English.
We aim to make documents attached to invitations to our shareholders' meetings easy to understand. To this end, we provide not only legally required contents, but also other useful information, such as information regarding our products and the overview of our mid-term business plan. Additionally, we make effective use of graphs, photographs, and color printing.
Additionally, we make sure that ordinary general meetings of shareholders are accessible and easy to understand for many shareholders by adopting various measures such as the exhibition of panels to explain about JSR, video and audio information relating to our business conditions, and the President’s briefing on the mid-term business plan.

Communication with Shareholders and Investors

In addition to conducting briefings on our business results after each quarter, we also organize seminars for investment institutions and analysts as well as various other events to achieve extensive bi-directional communication with shareholders and investors.
