Today, Tokyo Stock Exchange Inc. (“TSE”) has notified listed companies about the the Financial Services Agency's announcement regarding their policy to extend the deadline for Securities reports, long-term reports, half-year reports and parent company status as follows.

Today, the the Financial Services Agency announced "Extending the deadline for submission of securities reports, etc. based on the declaration of emergence of Coronavirus (COVID-19)." Therefore the deadline for submission of Securities reports, long-term reports, half-year reports and parent company status will be uniformly extended until the end of September this year without individual application from the companies.

As stated in “Handling of the Exchange Traded on Declaration of Emergency” (TSE Listing No. 17) dated April 7, it is difficult for the listed companies to carry out smooth settlement operations etc. In such a case, we would like to ask you to reconsider the financial results announcement schedule after giving top priority to ensuring the health and safety of executives, employees, business partners, and other related parties.

As the policy of the Financial Services Agency is that "it will be difficult for many companies, including those whose fiscal year ended on March, to carry out financial reporting and auditing process as usual." Based on this assumption, please make sure you accurately understand the progress status of your company's etc. and consider the necessary measures.
Regarding “delayed submission of securities report or quarterly report” stipulated in Article 601, Paragraph 1, Item 10 of the Securities Listing Regulations, please note, that it will be applied only if the company does not submit the Securities Report etc. to the Prime Minister by the end of September, 2020.
If you have any questions regarding the disclosure of information on the effects of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) infectious disease and the handling of the listing system, please do not hesitate to contact the exchange (listed section).
