Initiative Aimed at Enhancing Corporate Value
Lion’s Action

Based on the Lion Group Charter for Corporate Behavior, Lion actively works to disclose corporate information in a fair, accurate, and timely manner in order to secure the trust and understanding of shareholders, investors, and all other stakeholders.

IR Activities

Information Tools

Lion has incorporated an Investor Relations section in its corporate website in an effort to provide information to as many of its shareholders and investors as possible in a timely and equitable manner. Together with an overview of its business activities and operating performance, the Company’s website provides easy access to a raft of information, including Lion’s management strategies, financial position, and a variety of materials relating to the Company’s financial results. As such, Lion’s website has received high praise from external third parties regarding the depth of information and ease of use. The content and format of the Investor Relations section, in particular, have been designed to convey the Company’s strengths and strategies in an easy-to-understand manner.

Moreover, steps have been taken to post an online copy of Lion’s annual report on its website in an effort to provide overseas shareholders and investors with a direct and deeper understanding of the Company’s business environment and management strategies.
