Enhancing Communication

Earnings presentation meetings were held quarterly to allow management to directly communicate the Company's results. KDDI also held individual and small group meetings with investors from Japan and overseas, and participated in various conferences and seminars for individual investors sponsored by securities companies for better communication.
KDDI takes the opinions expressed by shareholders and investors seriously, communicating them not only to management but also to employees in general. Such opinions are considered an extremely valuable reference in the formation of business and management strategies.
In line with our initiatives to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus, we currently employ our corporate website to simultaneously release key information to investors while incorporating teleconferencing and other communication methods that allow us to avoid in-person meetings.
