Reason for Election at External Director
Christopher Douglas Brady has gained a high level of experience and knowledge in national defense, security, risk management, and prevention of money laundering throughout his career. In 2019, he conducted an exchange of opinions related to corporate governance with Japanese institutional investors at the Japan Business Federation (Keidanren). Based on our judgment that he could use this diverse range of experiences and knowledge in the supervision of our business, and appropriately carry out the office of external director from an objective position, in order to create strong corporate governance, that secures the transparency of business and does not condone impropriety, he has been selected as a candidate for this position. Note that this candidate is located in the United States of America, but he is aware that if elected a Director of the Company, he will fundamentally be able to attend all Board of Directors meetings and his intention is to fulfill his duties as a Director of the Company.
Matters concerning independence
He satisfies the requirements for independent directors prescribed by the Tokyo Stock Exchange, Inc. and the “Independence standards for external directors” prescribed by the Company.
