Officers' remuneration

Decision-making Process for directors' remuneration

We have the remuneration committee that determines the remuneration system and level for directors and executive officers.
In order to ensure transparency and objectivity, this Committee is chaired by an independent external director, and the majority of the members are independent officers consisting of external directors and external corporate auditors.
This Committee is received requests by the Board of Directors, and deliberates on the remuneration system and level based on the decision policy of officers' remuneration , and reports to the Board of Directors.
The Board of Directors makes decisions on the remuneration and other programs after deliberation based on the reports of the Remuneration Committee.
Each director's amount of remuneration is calculated and determined based on the remuneration program within the total amount of remuneration of all directors determined pursuant to a resolution adopted by the General Meeting of Shareholders.

Basic Remuneration
We make additions for directors, in addition to flat remuneration that is fixed for each position. (Fixed remuneration: 85% of the overall amount)

Performance-based remuneration consists of dividend-based remuneration that fluctuates according to our annual dividends and divisional performance-based remuneration that fluctuates according to performance, and the ratio is 50%: 50%.
Performance-based remuneration for directors and executive officers of the head office is determined by our consolidated performance , and performance-based remuneration of directors and executive officers in charge of business units is determined by the performance of each division.
Dividend-based remuneration is calculated by multiplying the base amount for each executive position by a coefficient according to our annual dividends.
15% of the addition to directors is changed by multiplying the dividend-based remuneration coefficient.
Divisional performance -based remuneration is calculated by multiplying the base amount for each position by a coefficient according to ranks A to E.

By applying these indices, we share our value with our shareholders and build a mechanism that enable us to reflect profitability, growth potential, maintenance of financial disciplines, safety, compliance, and other perspectives in the Remuneration of directors.
