Introduction of Takeover Defense MeasuresThe Company has introduced takeover defense measures (rules of large-scale purchase). These measures remain in effect due to the submission to and approval by the General Meeting of Shareholders held on June 24, 2015, of proposal No. 6. For details, please see the General Meeting of Shareholders section of the Company’s website ( Further, the effective period of takeover defense measures is three years (until the end of the General Meeting of Shareholders to be held in June 2018).Shareholder InteractionsThe Company seeks to engage in constructive interactions with shareholders and other investors that contribute to sustainable growth and medium- to long-term improvements in corporate value. The Company has established an investor relations (IR) activity system and advances proactive initiatives based on the following poli-cies to facilitate this endeavor.(1)The ofcer responsible for IR implements and oversees the Company’s various IR activities, including individual meetings with shareholders and investors. In regard to responses to requests for individual meetings, members of senior management or directors will meet with shareholders or investors requesting meetings based, whenever appropriate, on the desires and interests of the requester. In the scal year ended March 31, 2017, we held individ-ual meetings with more than 180 domestic and overseas institu-tional investors and analysts.(2)The Public Relations Ofce, Finance & Accounting Department, General Affairs & Legal Department, and Corporate Strategic Ofce will play a central role in advancing the Company’s various IR activities. Relevant divisions pursue close coordination with these ofces and departments, exchanging information on a daily basis and meeting with members of senior management as appropriate to share necessary information.(3)In addition to individual meetings, the Company’s IR activities include regular briengs on nancial results and medium-term business plans, visits to overseas investors, participation in IR conferences at which overseas investors gather, business explana-tory forums, and Company briengs for individual investors. In the scal year ended March 31, 2017, the Company participated in a total of four IR conferences held in Tokyo. We seek to expand the range of information provided to domestic and overseas share-holders and other investors by publishing shareholder newsletters and annual reports and posting information in the IR section of our corporate website. At the same time, we collect feedback from a wide range of shareholders and other investors through surveys that are attached to shareholder newsletters and made available on the IR website.(4)Opinions and concerns of shareholders and other investors solic-ited through IR activities are relayed to management by the rele-vant divisions via quarterly business reports at the Board of Directors’ meetings or reported appropriately to management on an as-required basis.(5)In interactions with shareholders and other investors, we practice stringent management of information in accordance with the internal Insider Trading Prevention Regulations to ensure that insider information is not disclosed. In addition, the Company’s disclosure policy stipulates that we will observe a quiet period that begins approximately one month prior to the announcement of quarterly nancial results to avoid leaks of nancial results and to maintain fairness. During this period, we will not answer questions or make comments on our nancial results and forecasts.Corporate GovernanceTHE BASE THAT SUPPORTS GROWTH46LINTEC ANNUAL REPORT 2017
