In addition, it is our basic policy to proactively release in an equitable manner other corporate information not falling under the Timely Disclosure and other regulations whenever deemed to be of use to investors in developing an understanding of our company and making investment decisions.
1. Criteria of Disclosure
Under the Timely Disclosure regulations, Oak Capital will perform disclosures in a fair and timely manner as following circumstances require: (1) whenever management decisions, significant events and information related to financial results (hereinafter collectively referred to as "Material Facts") are bound to produce an effect on investment decisions, (2) whenever the TSE may request disclosure of certain information and (3) whenever the contents of previously disclosed important corporate information undergo significant change such as discontinued relevance of such information.
2. Method of Information Disclosure

Information disclosed on TDnet will also be posted on Oak Capital's website in a timely manner.
3. Future Prospects
1. Earnings Forecasts
Due to its intrinsic attributes, Oak Capital's investment banking business is significantly impacted by causes of stock market fluctuation making it difficult to assess the earnings forecasts in a reasonable manner. For this reason, Oak Capital has opted to forego disclosure of earnings forecasts and strive to make prompt disclosure of quarterly results instead. Forecasts will only be disclosed once they can be assessed in a reasonable manner.
