Our Perspective on Corporate Governance

Current Status of the Corporate Governance System
KWE's Board of Directors consists of eight members, including three Outside Directors. The Board resolves on important matters related to management and makes decisions. We have adopted a managing officer system in order to further clarify the separation of the management and execution functions and speed up decision-making.
KWE's Corporate Management Meeting is composed of standing Directors and Audit & Supervisory Board Members, managing officers, division managers and other relevant personnel. The Meeting meets twice monthly under the supervision of the Board of Directors.
The Audit & Supervisory Board consists of four Audit & Supervisory Board Members, including two Outside Audit & Supervisory Board Members and meets once a month as a rule. In addition to determining basic policies regarding auditing and other matters, board members report to each other the findings of their daily auditing activities and exchange views. We have also established mechanisms that enable the Board Members to demand whatever reports they require from Directors, managing officers, or employees, and to investigate the status of business and assets at KWE Group companies at any time.
