We believe that the reinforcement of our company's corporate governance plays a pivotal role in achieving "a fair and transparent management deserving of stakeholders' confidence", and we intend to increase its effectiveness by improving the quality of our internal controls. We acknowledge that the achievement of effective and efficient business processes, the credibility of financial reports, the compliance with relevant laws and regulations, and the preservation of company's assets at our company and its subsidiaries (hereinafter the "Group") are the management's responsibility. Accordingly, we will prepare and refine a framework, including our internal regulations as well as our organization, to ensure fair business activity in compliance with the Japanese Companies Act and implementing regulations of the said Act.
