Communication with Shareholders and Investors

Proactive information disclosure

Brother Industries, Ltd. (BIL) is committed to building a long-term relationship with its shareholders and investors based on trust by increasing opportunities to provide them with the latest information in a comprehensive way.
For shareholders, BIL publishes shareholder newsletters twice a year (A full year’s issue is integrated with the notice of a shareholders meeting.) to keep them up to date with the Brother Group's business performance as well as the latest topics about the group.
For institutional investors and securities analysts, BIL holds a biannual financial results briefing, in which the president himself gives a presentation, and is also willing to arrange a visit to them individually and to accept their requests for an interview. For private investors, BIL explains the Brother Group’s business activities and management strategies by corporate presentations mainly made at branch offices of securities companies across Japan.

BIL will continue to create opportunities to communicate with as many shareholders and investors as possible and actively disclose information.

BIL actively discloses information to its shareholders and investors. In its efforts to build a trusting relationship with them, BIL has been publishing biannual shareholder newsletters (A full year’s issue is integrated with the notice of a shareholders meeting.) and creating various communication opportunities, including company information sessions.
In recent years, the number of private investors has increased due to a favorable stock investment environment. Against this backdrop, BIL has been working to generate "Brother fans" so that private investors will have a greater affinity for the company and hold their stocks for a long period of time.

In FY2016, BIL held company information sessions 12 times in total at several securities companies’ branches in Sapporo, Tokyo, Hamamatsu, Nagoya, Kyoto, Osaka, Hiroshima, Matsuyama, and Takamatsu, thereby being able to interact with more than 1,800 private investors. Each venue had an exhibition space for Brother products, which provided valuable opportunities to respond to many questions from private investors and directly introduce the Brother Group’s manufacturing capabilities. BIL considered that a number of encouraging words and expectations toward Brother's future from private investors who attended the events were surely positive results of its efforts to generate "Brother fans."

BIL will continue to organize company information sessions across Japan to expose the attractive features of the company and its products. It remains committed to further generating "Brother fans" while taking full advantage of opportunities to directly communicate with shareholders and investors.
