Directors' Remuneration

Remuneration System Designed to Establish Greater Linkage with Corporate Performance

The remuneration of company officers is comprised of both performance-based and non-performance-based remuneration. Policies for deciding the pay ratios for these are decided by considering the level of responsibilities for improving business performance and increasing medium- to long-term corporate value.
These decisions are made by the Board of Directors after receiving the findings of the Nomination & Remuneration Committee in order to ensure the objectivity of remuneration policy and the systems and operations for distributing remuneration. However, outside directors are only paid fixed remuneration amounts in light of their responsibilities and from the perspective of emphasizing autonomy.
Performance-based remuneration indexes are set for each officer, involving a combination of quantitative indexes such as net profit for the year, and individual qualitative evaluations. These indexes are selected because they can be used to comprehensively determine the level of contribution to short-term and medium- to long-term business performance for the Company, and because they are thought to be evaluation indexes that can be common to all executives and employees, allowing for objective quantitative evaluation. Similar to the policies for deciding pay ratios, amounts of performance-based remuneration are decided by the Board of Directors after receiving the findings of the Nomination & Remuneration Committee.
