Disclosure Policy

1.Disclosure Criteria

Star Micronics discloses information in a prompt and fair manner in accordance with timely disclosure rules prescribed by the Tokyo Stock Exchange (TSE). Star Micronics also actively discloses information that is not covered by these rules if it deems that such information is useful for enhancing investors’ understanding of the company’s activities.

2.Information Disclosure Methods

Information subject to the timely disclosure rules is disclosed through the Timely Disclosure Network (TDnet) operated by the TSE in accordance with those rules. The same information is simultaneously disclosed to media organizations and promptly uploaded to the company’s website.

3.Forward-looking Statements

Statements included in plans, earnings forecasts, strategies and other announcements made by the company with respect to future performance constitute forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements incorporate certain assumptions and are based on information available to management at the time of preparation. As such, forward-looking statements involve a number of risks and uncertainties that may cause actual results to differ markedly from those forecast.

4.Quiet Period

Star Micronics maintains a quiet period from the day after the closing date of each quarter (1Q-4Q) until the release of financial results in order to prevent the leak of information and ensure fairness. During this period, Star Micronics refrains from replying to inquiries or commenting on its results. However, when information disclosure is deemed necessary based on 1. Disclosure Criteria, the company will promptly disclose information in accordance with 2. Information Disclosure Methods.

5.Corporate Website

Star Micronics sees its corporate website as an important means of disclosing information in a fair manner. After the disclosure of information in accordance with 2. Information Disclosure Methods, Star Micronics promptly uploads such information to its website. However, there may be delays in this process due to reasons such as the time required to prepare data files and other tools, or issues with information and communication technologies. Moreover, the information released by the company on its website may not cover all the details in the actual announcement or may use a different form of wording from disclosures made through other methods.
