Yokogawa will also positively disclose any other information that is considered to have an impact on the investment decisions of investors.
- Information Disclosure Method
Disclosure of information falling under the regulations is made through the Timely Disclosure System of the TSE (TDnet) immediately following the presentation of that information to the TSE. Information disclosed is also promptly disclosed on our website.

- Future Prospects
Any statements made on this website that are not based on historical fact are forward-looking statements based on certain assumptions. Projections may differ from actual financial results due to uncertainties involving such factors as economic conditions, the demand for our products and services, and changes in taxation and other regulations. The reader is therefore advised to not rely exclusively on these projections when evaluating our performance and determining our value as a going concern.
- Silence Period
In order to prevent the release of any information that may affect our stock price while our financial results are being prepared, we have established a silence period from the day after the closing day of the respective financial period until the announcement of financial results is made. If it appears likely that the financial results will vary substantially from the latest projections, we will in accordance with the regulations issue a revised projection by way of TDnet and announce this with a press release and a statement on our website.
