Akebono IR Activities
At Akebono, in addition to timely and transparent disclosure practices, we are committed to building relationships of trust with shareholders and investors through proactive dialogue.
The following are activities related to Ordinary General Meeting of Shareholders and exercise of voting rights
Timely distribution of the Notice of Convocation of the General Meeting of Shareholders
Akebono, in order to provide shareholders with sufficient time to consider proposals, typically distributes the Notice of Convocation of the General Meeting of Shareholders sooner than two weeks before scheduled date of General Meeting of Shareholders which is required by law.
Scheduling of General Meeting of Shareholders Early
Akebono typically schedules the General Meeting of Shareholders several days in advance of dates that tend to be the peak time for Shareholders Meetings. This helps to avoid overlap and facilitates increased shareholder attendance.
Electronic exercise of voting rights
For the convenience of the company's shareholders, Akebono allows shareholders to exercise voting rights via Internet.
Participation in electronic proxy voting platform and shareholder communication services
Since the June, 2010 General Meeting of Shareholders, Akebono has been using electronic proxy voting service, developed by Investor Communications Japan (ICJ).
English version of Notice of Convocation of the General Meeting of Shareholders
Akebono publishes an English version of the Notice of Convocation of the General Meeting of Shareholders, which is made available on the corporate web site, as well as the electronic proxy voting platform.
Akebono includes charts, pictures, and other useful information in the Notice of Convocation of the General Meeting of Shareholders in order to help shareholders more easily understand the information within the Notice. Furthermore, following the General Meeting of Shareholders, the company hosts several events, such as management information meetings and shareholder receptions in order to provide opportunities to discuss future plans and other information with shareholders.
