Supporting companies as a key component of social infrastructure for the capital markets
PRONEXUS is a specialist in supporting the corporate disclosure and investor relations documents of listed companies and financial instrument management companies geared toward investors. Investors evaluate corporate value and make investment decisions based on the Internet contents and disclosure documents we help companies produce. In addition, it is essential for us to develop and operate ironclad information security systems in order to safeguard the many pieces of confidential information, including unreleased information, that are included in the original data we handle. Based on this, it would be no exaggeration to say that PRONEXUS acts as a type of social infrastructure for the capital markets.
Leveraging four key functions to support the advancement and growing complexity of disclosure activities
Investor relations activities continue to expand in importance each year in line with the increasing number of individual investors, globalization of the capital markets and disclosure systems that become more advanced with each passing year due to legal revisions. This fact makes the duties of persons in charge of corporate disclosure activities even more complex and advanced. PRONEXUS provides accurate practical solutions that meet the needs of those in charge of corporate disclosure activities.
Unique operating structure unlike general printing companies
PRONEXUS' 80 professional consultants with working-level experience in disclosure activities provide informative support to clients through seminars and legal document checks. We also independently develop and provide systems to help clients prepare disclosure documents. PRONEXUS maintains around 300 full-time staff in its information center who provide client and technical support, data processing and character processing services. We have built and currently operate a data center that is seismically isolated to cope with earthquakes of up to 7 on Japan's seismic intensity scale. We have developed and operate a company-wide ISMS-certified ironclad confidential information management system for insider as well as other important information.
A leading company supported by the trust of its clients
Most of the value we provide is concentrated in processes prior to proof-making and printing, as one of our unique traits is that we deliver support services using proprietary IT solutions and leveraging our advanced professional expertise. Buoyed by the high degree of trust given to these services, we have achieved a solid track record where 96%*1 of clients using our services relating to key, regular disclosure documents, including securities reports and convocation notices for shareholders' meetings, are repeat clients. PRONEXUS also works regularly with around 60%*2 of Japan's listed companies to help produce regular disclosure documents.
