Nippon Sanso Holdings actively engages in dialogue with its stakeholders in order to grasp social changes and needs, then uses this knowledge in its management and business activities. In addition to the annual general meeting of shareholders, we also hold financial results presentations for institutional investors and securities analysts, and host observation tours of our business sites in an effort to facilitate constructive communication.
Financial Results Presentations
At our financial results presentations, we use visual aids to give a deeper understanding of the Company’s businesses, financial results, and forecasts.
Business Site Observation Tours
Observation tours of the Company’s plants and research laboratories are held regularly to give people an even deeper understanding of the Company’s business. In November 2019, we conducted a plant observation tour at Shanghai Taiyo Nippon Sanso Gas Co., Ltd. in China to introduce the Group’s gas business.
We have also released a number of regular publications for shareholders and investors, including full-term and interim business reports and a single integrated report that provides both financial information, such as that related to business strategies and operations, and non-financial information, including that related to environmental protection, social contribution, and corporate governance, with the aim of giving readers an accurate overall picture of the Nippon Sanso Holdings Group.
Ensuring Fair Returns to Shareholders
Having positioned the provision of fair returns to shareholders as a key management responsibility, we strive to maintain stable dividends, while at the same time ensuring our dividend payout ratio fairly reflects our business performance. Guided by the strategic policy set forth in our medium-term management plan, we will continue working to enhance our performance.
