Corporate Governance

Basic Approach to Corporate Governance

We recognize corporate governance as a means for maximizing corporate value. As such, we engage in organizational overhauls as appropriate to accommodate the expansion of our business ventures, to manage profits and losses of each of our businesses, and to further clarify authority and responsibilities. We also focus on further enhancing the capabilities of the Board of Directors (which serves as the Company's decision-making body) and of Audit and Supervisory Board Members and the Audit and Supervisory Board to monitor directors' performance of their duties, as well as on improving the ability of our systems for internal control to prevent improprieties in the execution of business activities. In addition, to continually increase management transparency and fairness, we intend to appropriately present statutory disclosure documents and to actively conduct IR activities using our website and other means.

We post our Corporate Governance Reports on our website.
