1. Criteria for Disclosure
OMRON is committed to developing business activities that not only comply with legal requirements but meet the highest ethical standards, under the banner of a key management principle: "Ensure the highest ethical standards."

2. Methods of Disclosure
Information for disclosure, as defined in the timely disclosure rules, is released, after prior briefing to the Tokyo Stock Exchange (TSE), via the TSE's TD-NET, in conformity with the timely disclosure rules.

3. Prevention of Insider Trading
OMRON cautions you that any trading of equity related securities of the Company conducted timely of the disclosure of information on TD-NET or announcement via a press release may be deemed a violation of insider-trading regulations. OMRON will take all possible steps to prevent homepage users from becoming a primary recipient of nonpublic material information as defined by insider-trading regulations

However, in the event that results are expected to substantially differ from forecasts, OMRON will make appropriate announcements based on the timely disclosure rules.
