Disclosure Policy

1.Disclosure standards
Kansai Paint discloses information in accordance with laws and regulations associated with the Financial Instruments and Exchange Act and rules, including the Tokyo Stock Exchange's Timely Disclosure Rules. Additionally, we seek to proactively disclose information considered important in improving understanding of our business activities among stakeholders, even for matters not subject to the Timely Disclosure Rules.
2.Disclosure methods
Information subject to the Timely Disclosure Rules is published through TD-NET, which is provided by the Tokyo Stock Exchange. It is also promptly posted to the Kansai Paint website following disclosure. Other information judged to require disclosure in light of its importance is published on the Kansai Paint website as appropriate.
3.Forward-looking statements
In addition to the forecasts of business results contained in the summary of accounts, briefings on settlement of accounts and other materials disclosed by Kansai Paint may include forward-looking statements. Such forward-looking statements are based on certain assumptions and inferences as of the time of disclosure and may differ from actual results.
4.Quiet period
To prevent leaks of information on financial results and ensure fair disclosure, Kansai Paint designates the three-week period prior to the date of announcement of financial results for each quarter as a quiet period. We refrain from answering questions or commenting on financial results during this period. However, information concerning projections that differ widely from financial forecasts will be disclosed as appropriate even during the quiet period, in accordance with the Timely Disclosure Rules.
