Tokyo Electron (TEL; Head Office: Minato-ku, Tokyo; President: Toshiki Kawai) has received the Best IR Award 2021, selected by the Japan Investor Relations Association (Chairman: Mr. Naoki Izumiya, Honorary Advisor, Asahi Group Holdings, Ltd.), for the third time following 2006 and 2011.
The IR Award (Committee Chairman: Tetsuo Kitagawa, Ph.D., Emeritus Professor of Aoyama Gakuin University, and Professor of Tokyo Metropolitan University) is designed to recognize companies that have been highly accredited in the investment community for their understanding and promotion of IR activities. The award-winning companies are selected in three screening stages: the first screening based on the results of the survey submitted by the applicant companies; the second screening by 14 members of the Screening Committee, including securities analysts, institutional investors, journalists, and other experts; and the final (third) screening by all members of the Screening Committee, including academics and lawyers.
The main reasons for the selection of our company are as follow;
“Tokyo Electron has continued to improve dialogue with investors. Its President & CEO has increased opportunities to engage in dialogue with investors, partly by using online meetings. The company has been highly praised for its efforts to disclose information about industry trends from a medium- to long-term perspective, and to newly hold an IR Day with enhanced information on technical trends. The IR Department has a good understanding of the overall picture of management and makes efforts to explain it in a logical way. The company also consistently seeks to disclose information as much as possible, based on the Fair Disclosure Principles.”
