Policy for Constructive Dialogue with Shareholders

Sony's policy on investor relations is to make public disclosures which are timely and fair, accurate and easily understandable, and 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, the Board appoints the CFO as the Corporate Executive Officer in charge of IR activities. 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 go beyond one-on-one meetings to include investor briefings, corporate strategy meetings and business unit briefings like "IR Day." The IR Department also coordinates internally to gather information necessary to guide the dialogue with shareholders and investors. Further, the IR Department evaluates the opinions and concerns expressed from shareholders and investors and conveys appropriate feedback regarding those opinions and concerns to the Corporate Executive Officers in charge and the Board.

When holding dialogue with shareholders and investors, any insider information shall not to be disclosed. The IR Department reviews information to be disclosed in advance with other relevant departments and outside experts, as appropriate.
