Information Publication for Employees
Every month, an in-house magazine is published for the purpose of sharing information on corporate policies and initiatives as well as boosting the motivation of employees and promoting communication. So far, we have published over 730 issues since the first printing in April of 1956. In February 2014, we began posting internal information on our intranet in an effort to provide information to employees on a broader and more timely basis.
We also have a means to promote direct communication with employees through periodical visits by management to each place of business and workplace.

We are committed to timely and appropriate disclosure of business information in order to deepen the understanding of our shareholders and investors. We also strive for fair disclosure of information by promptly publishing all kinds of information on our website, including holding general meetings of shareholders, issuing reports for shareholders, and running briefing sessions for the media and analysts for each quarterly settlement.
Moreover, we offer an IR newsletter service to distribute the latest IR information, such as statement details, by email to those who register. Approximately 1,500 people are currently registered for the free IR newsletter service.

Plant Tours for Shareholders
Subaru conducts plant tours for shareholders with the aim of deepening shareholders’ understanding of our management policies and corporate activities. During the tours, shareholders experience a Subaru production site, the employees working there, and our corporate culture directly. We also allocate time to a Q&A in which Subaru officers participate in order to achieve direct communication between shareholders and our company.
In FY2017, we had plant tours at Gunma Manufacturing Division’s Yajima Plant and Main Plant (14th time) and Tokyo Office’s research and development facilities (first time) in May 2017. The 63 shareholders (a total of 105 including their guests) participated in the Gunma Manufacturing Division’s tour, and we received many comments in regard to their recognition and understanding of “Subaru’s commitment toward safety performance”. The 37 shareholders (a total of 54 including their guests) participated in the Tokyo Office’s tour. Comments received include “I am satisfied that I could again experience Subaru technology and its attitude toward manufacturing,” and “I was happy to see the Subaru spirit displayed directly from the development team.”
We report the opinions and impressions we receive at the tours to the relevant people at the company, including officers, and utilize them in our future IR activities.
