Evaluating the Effectiveness of the Board of Directors as a Whole

Summary of Evaluation Results for FY2022
Based on the outcome of the survey analysis, the results were discussed at the Board of Directors and Governance Committee, and generally affirmative evaluations were obtained regarding the roles, operation, composition, etc. of the Board of Directors. In this way, we have verified that the effectiveness of the Board of Directors is being ensured. On the other hand, views were also expressed and shared on issues that need to be addressed in order to raise the Board’s effectiveness. Among these are discussions concerning medium- to long-term management strategy and strengthening of the Group’s internal controls. In light of these evaluations, the Company will respond promptly after the Board of Directors and Governance Committee have fully examined these issues, and it will continually promote initiatives that produce a better functioning Board of Directors.
