Brother held events for individual shareholders for the first time

Brother Industries, Ltd. (BIL) strives to build a relationship of trust with its shareholders and investors by creating various communication opportunities, such as biannual shareholder newsletters (The full year's issue is integrated with the notice of a shareholders meeting.) and company information sessions.
During FY2017, BIL, for the first time, held events for individual shareholders in August and September, responding to many requests to provide more information on Brother and to increase communication opportunities in a questionnaire for shareholders.

In August, BIL held an event at the Nagoya City Science Museum in Nagoya City, Aichi Prefecture, where the head office of BIL is located. This event, attended by 235 people including those from the general public, consisted of a presentation on Brother's efforts to address various environmental issues all over the world, a lecture on endangered species, and a planetarium show in the planetarium dome "Brother Earth."
In September, BIL organized a tour in Museum Brother Communication Space.
This tour, having a total of 29 participants composed of individual shareholders and their companions, introduced Brother's 109-year history and business, changes in business performance, and so forth. The tour also provided a time for the participants to try out some Brother products and experience their attractiveness. The participants, for example, cut out a snowflake from a piece of construction paper with a "ScanNCut," a home cutting machine designed for cutting paper or cloth, and also made their own name labels with a "P-touch," a labeling system capable of creating original labels.

The comments BIL received from the participants include: "I have felt much closer to Brother than before." "I thought Brother was a company centering on sewing machines. I, however, have understood the company focuses on overseas expansion and nature conservation." "I had already known that Brother is an excellent company through its shareholders meetings, and this conviction was further strengthened through the explanation provided in the tour."

BIL values opportunities to directly communicate with shareholders and investors in order to convey the attractiveness of the company and its products, and remains committed to further generating "Brother fans."
