Basic Views on Corporate Governance

While emphasizing initiatives to achieve sustainable corporate growth and a medium-to long-term improvement in corporate value, MHC aspires to contribute to a more prosperous society by respecting the rights and interests of all of its stakeholders—shareholders, customers, local communities, and employees—and fulfilling their trust in the Company.
With the recognition that it is one of its social responsibilities to ensure transparent and sound management, MHC continues to work on initiatives to enhance corporate governance by boosting the activity of the Board of Directors, reinforcing the Audit & Supervisory Committee and the internal audit system, ensuring timely and appropriate disclosures of information, and actively engaging in investor relations (IR) and other activities.

Basic Policies

<Fostering Sound Corporate Culture>

In accordance with Our Vision, which guides all of MHC’s activities, and the Mitsubishi HC Capital Group Code of Ethics and Code of Conduct, which serves as the standard for the decisions and behaviors of all employees, MHC strives to understand the diversity of its various stakeholders including shareholders, customers, local communities, and employees and foster a corporate culture that respects their rights and perspectives and sound corporate ethics.

<Ensuring Appropriate Information Disclosure and Transparency>

MHC conducts proactive and continuous information disclosure in order to be trusted and properly evaluated by each of its stakeholders. It also establishes and appropriately operates internal systems to facilitate the swift and impartial disclosure of accurate information regarding its management policies, business strategies, business activities, financial condition, etc. In addition to the items it is required to disclose pursuant to laws and regulations, it actively and voluntarily discloses non-financial information deemed useful to its stakeholders.

<Ensuring the Rights and Equal Treatment of Shareholders>

MHC takes appropriate steps to ensure that the rights of shareholders are secured and can be exercised effectively and all shareholders including minority shareholders and foreign shareholders are treated equally.

<Constructive Dialogue with Shareholders>

Through events such as General Meeting of Shareholders, financial results briefings, and other domestic and overseas investor relations (IR) events, MHC pursues proactive and constructive dialogue with diverse shareholders. It thereby seeks to gain understanding from shareholders regarding matters such as its business strategies and further enhance corporate governance through dialogue.

<Ensuring Effectiveness of the Board of Directors>

All members of the Board of Directors, including Outside Directors, call upon their experience and insight as they engage in free and open discussions, supporting appropriate risk-taking. In this manner, they adequately fulfill their duties and responsibilities to achieve the sustainable growth of MHC, medium-to long-term improvement of its corporate value, and enhancement of its capital efficiency.

Corporate Governance Framework

MHC is a company with an audit & supervisory committee, and has established a Board of Directors to be responsible for important decision-making and supervisory functions, and an Audit & Supervisory Committee to be responsible for audit and supervisory functions.
In order to further enhance its corporate governance, MHC has also established a Nomination Committee and a Compensation Committee to serve as advisory bodies to designate the President & CEO and determine the remuneration, etc. of Directors. Further, MHC has established a Governance Committee to serve as an advisory body to the Board of Directors regarding improving the Board’s effectiveness, etc.
Alongside adopting an executive officer system, MHC has established an Executive Committee to serve as a body for deliberation and decision-making on important management matters.

Corporate Governance Framework

<Matters concerning the Board of Directors>

MHC implements a system to manage and operate business in line with the basic policy decided by the Board of Directors. Each Outside Director has qualities appropriate for their positions, giving the Board of Directors a set of diversified and sufficient skills.
In addition, for timely, appropriate, and smooth provision of information particularly to Outside Directors, the General Affairs Department serves as the secretariat for the Board of Directors, and the Audit & Supervisory Committee Office has been established to assist the duties of the Audit & Supervisory Committee.
Each year, all Directors conduct a review and evaluation of the Board of Directors over the previous year. In addition, discussions attended only by Independent Outside Directors are held regularly, and in the event that an issue, etc. is raised there, it will be appropriately responded to and improved.

<Matters concerning the Governance Committee, Nomination Committee, and Compensation Committee>

MHC has established the Governance Committee, which consists of the Outside Directors, Representative Directors, etc., and has exchanged a wide range of opinions on the improvement of the Board of Directors’ effectiveness and other matters regarding the Board of Directors, in order to work on the improvement of the soundness, transparency, and fairness of MHC’s management.
Additionally, MHC, based on the understanding that appropriate involvement of Independent Outside Directors is extremely important for resolutions related to nomination and remuneration, has established the Nomination Committee and Compensation Committee, of which Independent Outside Directors comprise the majority.
The Nomination Committee discusses the appointment of Directors, the succession plan for the Representative Director, President & CEO, knowledge, experience, skills, etc. that the Directors should have, and other matters.
The Compensation Committee regularly monitor the Directors’ remuneration system of MHC in comparison with the market standard by using an external specialized agency, and discusses policies concerning the systems, standards, etc. for Directors’ remuneration.

<Matters concerning Business Execution>

As a company with an audit & supervisory committee, MHC delegates the business execution decisions to the Executive Committee in an appropriate manner, a body which will deliberate and decide on important management matters, and expedites the decision-making process, with the aim of strengthening the supervisory functions of the Board of Directors. In addition, MHC has adopted an executive officer system, in order to further enhance and invigorate the functions of the Board of Directors by clarifying the responsibilities related to the execution of business.
The Executive Committee, a body which will deliberate and decide on important management matters, is composed of the President & CEO, Deputy President, and Executive Officers separately specified by the President & CEO. The Committee will hold deliberations and make decisions on important matters, including the business management of the Group, in addition to conducting preliminary considerations of matters that are to be submitted to the Board of Directors to facilitate decision-making by the Board of Directors.

<Status of Audits>

MHC has established the Internal Audit Department as a department in charge of internal audits.
The Internal Audit Department systematically implements internal audits based on an annual audit plan, and reports the audit results to the Representative Directors, the Board of Directors, and the Audit & Supervisory Committee.
With regard to findings that require improvement, for which guidance was provided to the divisions subject to audits (important findings), those divisions are to report the results of improvement to the General Manager of the Internal Audit Department, and the Internal Audit Department reports the important findings to Representative Directors, in order to ensure the effectiveness of the audit.
The Audit & Supervisory Committee comprises a total of four persons, including three Independent Outside Directors (part-time Audit & Supervisory Committee members) and one Internal Director (a full-time Audit & Supervisory Committee member).
Through activities from 1) Deliberations, etc. among the Audit & Supervisory Committee, 2) On-site observations of offices in Japan and overseas, and 3) Meetings with the management team, the Audit & Supervisory Committee works to conduct objective and effective audits from an independent position.
Accounting audits are implemented in collaboration with the Audit & Supervisory Committee, as well as the Internal Audit Department, based on the audit agreement concluded with Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu LLC, and in conjunction with matters such as the provision of relevant information by the internal control offices.

Appointment and Dismissal of Directors

The Board of Directors resolves the appointment of candidates to serve as Directors after the Nomination Committee, of which Independent Outside Directors comprise the majority, holds discussions in advance based on the selection standards described below. The Board of Directors also resolves the appointment of candidates to serve as Directors who are also Audit & Supervisory Committee Members after the Nomination Committee discusses it and the Audit & Supervisory Committee agrees to it.
In addition, if Directors are found to meet the dismissal standards described below, their dismissal is deliberated by the Nomination Committee in a timely manner and decided by the Board of Directors.

<Selection Standards>

  1. Directors and Audit & Supervisory Committee Members should have the mental and physical soundness sufficient to execute business.

  3. The Director is deemed to not meet the selection standards for Directors.

Structure of the Board of Directors and Areas of Expertise by Directors

MHC assumes that the Board of directors shall possess skills in “overall management,” “finance,” “financial accounting,” “legal affairs, compliance, and risk management,” “global business” and other areas, in view of the business lineup.
MHC recognizes that diversity of Directors is important for purposes of strengthening the function of the Board of Directors, and that gender, nationality, and race are factors which should be considered.
On the other hand, MHC believes that it is not necessarily desirable, for purposes of strengthening the functions of the Board of Directors, to elect a Director with a certain attribute merely to comply with formal and external diversity requirements even when they lack the qualities and abilities that are required for the role.
Therefore, MHC believes, as a desirable way of achieving diversity within MHC, that it is necessary to consider whether such Director is expected to perform the necessary skills and possesses the ability in light of the respective management environment as a top priority, and electing a desirable person without restrictions on gender, nationality, race, age, career, etc. Based on such a view, MHC will continue to determine the appropriate composition of the Board of Directors.

Currently, it assumes that MHC’s Board of Directors consists of Directors from a variety of business categories and industries, and has an appropriate number of members to ensure a balanced composition of appropriate skills and diversity.
MHC has currently no foreign Director has been elected. However MHC acknowledges that the Board of Directors has been performing a sufficient supervisory function, as it has elected several Directors who possess a wealth of international business experience, and has received valuable opinions on global business development.

The major results of the assessment above are shown below:

  1. It was determined that the Board of Directors, etc. of MHC are sufficiently performing their roles.
    1. Following the review of the standards for items to be submitted to the Board of Directors in October 2023, lively discussions were held in the latter half of the fiscal year because it became possible to use more time for deliberation over important agenda items. This led to fostering mutual understanding and common awareness among Directors.

We will address the further enhancement of corporate governance by steadily implementing efforts to resolve every issue.

Remuneration for officers

1.Basic Policy

  1. MHC’s officers’ remuneration is determined by also taking into account officers’ incentives, with a view toward increasing corporate value through the execution of business strategies.
  2. The level of remuneration is appropriate with respect to the roles and responsibilities of each officer, and is also based on market levels, from the viewpoints of increasing medium- to long-term corporate value and improving short-term business performance.

2.Remuneration System

  1. In principle, Executive Directors and Executive Officers’ remuneration, etc., consists of base remuneration, short-term incentive compensation (performance-based monetary compensation), and medium-to long-term incentive compensation (performance-based stock compensation). As short-term incentive compensation, cash is paid as a bonus, while medium-to long-term incentive compensation is paid as provision of MHC’s shares, etc. in a trust framework.
  2. With a view toward maintaining a sound performance-based ratio, the ratio of fixed remuneration (base remuneration) to floating compensation (bonus and stock compensation) is generally set at 1:0.6 (the ratio of base remuneration to bonus to stock compensation is generally set at 1:0.3:0.3).
  3. Stock compensation is intended to further increase Directors' willingness to contribute to expanding MHC’s corporate value over the medium- to long-term, and to share the benefits and risks of stock price fluctuations with shareholders. This replaced the existing stock option system in fiscal 2023, and was introduced as a new compensation system for Directors (BIP trust) that is closely linked to the medium- to long-term performance of MHC and high in both transparency and objectivity.
  4. Bonuses and stock compensation, which represent incentive compensation, are not paid to non-executive directors including Outside Directors (excluding persons who are Audit & Supervisory Committee Members) from the standpoint of ensuring the effectiveness of their supervisory functions, and to Directors who are Audit & Supervisory Committee members from the standpoint of ensuring the fairness of audits.
  5. The amounts of remuneration for Directors who are Audit & Supervisory Committee Members shall be decided by a consultation of the Directors who are Audit & Supervisory Committee Members within the range resolved at the general meeting of shareholders.

Policy for Constructive Dialogue with Shareholders

With the recognition that it is one of its social responsibilities to ensure transparent and sound management while emphasizing initiatives to achieve sustainable corporate growth and a medium-to long-term improvement in corporate value, MHC pursues proactive and constructive dialogue with shareholders.
With the Corporate Communications Department and the General Affairs Department serving as the primary point of contact, MHC has established a system for collaboration with the Corporate & Strategic Planning Department, Accounting Department, etc. to implement the following initiatives.

  • Financial results briefings are held twice each year, after the announcement of full-year financial results and second quarter financial results, in which the President & CEO and management provide explanations and also answer any questions that are asked.
  • MHC’s management, the Corporate Communications Department, and the General Affairs Department conduct individual interviews with domestic and foreign shareholders and institutional investors, and IR and SR activities, such as participation in briefings and various conferences.
  • MHC provides a wide range of information such as the movies of financial results briefings and materials with scripts, and summaries of Q&A sessions on the corporate website to investors including individual investors. In conjunction with this, MHC participates in IR events and various briefings for individual investors which are organized by securities companies and stock exchanges.

Opinions and concerns expressed in the dialogue with shareholders are promptly reported to MHC’s management. In addition, those are regularly reported to the Board of Directors so that the information is shared with Independent Outside Directors as well. MHC appropriately and carefully manages insider information, in accordance with MHC’s internal rules, and also discloses such information in accordance with the information disclosure policy. Please refer to the following for the information disclosure policy:

Cross-shareholdings

1.Policies for Cross-shareholdings

Under the corporate policy for enhancing its corporate value, MHC holds listed shares for purposes other than pure investment (targeting gains primarily through fluctuations in the value of shares and the receipt of dividends), such as ① and ② below:

  1. Developing stable and long-term relationships with business partners and promoting business
  2. Strengthening such relationships based on capital/business alliances, and creating new business opportunities

In its cross-shareholding practice, MHC’s basic policy is to regularly examine if it is rational to hold each share and sell such strategic shares that are judged no longer rational to hold, after gaining sufficient understanding of its business partners while considering the impact of sales on businesses and markets.
Even when it is judged as rational to hold shares, MHC may sell such shares in consideration of the impact of the risk of mark-to-market valuation fluctuation of the shares on MHC’s finance, capital efficiency, etc.
The change in the number of listed stocks held since March 31, 2016 is as follows. The number decreased from 134 to 31 as of March 31, 2024.
