Dialogue with Shareholders and Other Investors

Last updated : October 31, 2016

NTT promotes management that prioritizes discussions with shareholders, which not only includes discussions at General Meetings of Shareholders but also involves senior management, including the president, actively promoting discussions with shareholders about medium-term management strategies, corporate governance, business performance trends, and other topics through one-on-one meetings with institutional investors and briefings targeting individual investors.
The opinions received from shareholders through such discussions are shared in the Company. NTT considered and formulated the medium-term management strategy that was announced in May 2015 in light of shareholder opinions.
During discussions with shareholders, insider information is strictly controlled, and information is proactively disclosed with due consideration to fair disclosure (timely, fair, and impartial information disclosure). To increase convenience for overseas investors, we strive to release Japanese- and English-language disclosure materials at the same time. The Japanese- and English-language versions of the entire Notice of Convocation for the ordinary general meeting of shareholders, including the business report, were released at the same time, more than one month prior to the date of the ordinary general meeting of shareholders.
