Sony's policy on investor relations is to make public disclosures which are timely and fair, which are accurate and easily understandable, and which provide a comprehensive picture, with the goal of maximizing Sony's enterprise value by building a relationship of trust with shareholders and investors. Pursuant to this policy, Sony engages in constructive dialogue with shareholders and investors.
The Board delegates IR duties to the Chief Financial Officer (the "CFO"), who in turn oversees the IR department. Under the CFO's supervision, the IR department works to promote constructive dialogue with Sony's shareholders and investors. As a part of these efforts, the IR department engages in various activities to enhance the manner and frequency of dialogue with shareholders and investors. These beyond one-on-one meetings to include investor briefings, corporate strategy meetings and business unit briefings like "IR Days." The IR department also coordinates internally to gather information necessary to augment the dialogue with shareholders and investors. Finally, the IR department evaluates the opinions and concerns expressed by shareholders and investors and conveys appropriate feedback regarding those opinions and concerns to the Corporate Executive Officers and the Board.
When holding dialogue with shareholders and investors, no insider information is to be disclosed. The IR department reviews the information to be disclosed in advance with other relevant departments and outside experts, as deemed appropriate.
