Board of Director's Self-Assessment of Performance

The Board approved rules for “Board of Directors Self-Assessment of Performance” and from 2016, all Board Directors annually assess the functioning of the Board. The Board’s performance evaluation by self-assessment covers the following four major areas:

  1. Level of participation in Company operations
  2. Improvement of the quality of Board resolutions
  3. Board composition and structure
  4. Internal control

Every year, after questionnaires are returned in January, the responsible unit for corporate governance will, in accordance with the aforementioned rules, conduct analysis and report the results to the Board, with an emphasis on any areas with room for improvement.

According to the most recent (2017) Board performance evaluation:

The Board’s performance was graded as excellent (full score is 100; average score of 90 or above is excellent; 80 to 89 is good; 70 to 79 is passing; below 70 is needs improvement). Detailed information regarding the above evaluation were reported to the Board at the Board Meeting of January 31, 2018.
