Hibiki Path Advisors（”Hibiki”）made a presentation (link below) on March 2nd, to DAIICHI CUTTER KOGYO K.K.（”Daiichi cutter”） regarding corporate governance improvement, various IR strategies, and appropriate dividend level/policy.
CEO Takahashi fully acknowledged our view particularly on 1)the lack of market recognition of its true corporate value, which has been derived from the company’s conservative earnings estimates and mid-term management plans, 2) the need for more appropriate financial measures.
Daiichi cutter also storngly agreed that in order to improve its recognition in the capital market and increase its corporate valuation, it is necessary not only to expand its business but also to conduct IR more proacitvely and strategically.
Hibiki will continue to discuss with Daiichi cutter about future measures and report our engagement in our media. We are committed to working with them side-by-side in order to bring a spotlight to this humble but well-run company.
