YOKOHAMA, Japan - Today, Nissan Motor Co., Ltd.’s former Representative Director and Chairman Carlos Ghosn and former Representative Director Greg Kelly were indicted for violating the Japan Financial Instruments and Exchange Act, namely making false disclosures in annual securities reports.
Nissan, as a legal entity, was also indicted for the same violation.
Nissan takes this situation extremely seriously. Making false disclosures in annual securities reports greatly harms the integrity of Nissan’s public disclosures in the securities markets, and the company expresses its deepest regret.
Nissan will continue its efforts to strengthen its governance and compliance, including making accurate disclosures of corporate information.
