Corporate Governance System
The Company is working to enhance the supervision of management. The board of directors includes 12 members, of whom 4 are outside directors. Moreover, in order to ensure that the Company responds to changes in the management environment as promptly as possible and to further clarify the responsibilities and awareness of directors, the term of directors has been set at one year or less.
The Company uses the statutory auditor system. The Audit & Supervisory Board comprises four statutory auditors, of whom 3 are outside auditors. Two of the statutory auditors are full-time. In accordance with the allocation of responsibilities as determined by the Audit & Supervisory Board, each statutory auditor conducts audits, working with the independent auditors as needed.
The Internal Auditing Division rigorously audits business execution, and the independent auditors provide account auditing. With close interaction centered on the statutory auditors, the Company's internal control systems are continually monitored, and all issues are identified and understood and recommendations for resolving those issues are provided.
* The Company has notified the TSE that the 4 outside directors and 3 outside Audit & Supervisory Board members are all independent directors or independent Audit & Supervisory Board members in accordance with TSE regulations.
