As a member of the Hitachi Group, the HCM Group shares Hitachi, Ltd.’s Basic Credo and Conduct guidelines and states our Standards of Corporate Conduct in line with them. The HCM Group positions these corporate behavior standards as the basic policies on corporate governance.
The HCM Group has adopted a corporate organizational system based on a structure for company with nominating committee, etc., as defined in the Companies Act, with the aims of ensuring highly fair and transparent management while building an operational system that facilitates the prompt and sound execution of management strategy. We have greatly strengthened our system of corporate governance through this separation of management oversight from business execution. The Board of Directors comprises ten (10) Directors, of which three (3) are Outside Directors (two (2) male and one (1) female). The Representative Executive Officer and Executive Officers, who are authorized to do so by the Board of Directors, have the right to make decisions on business execution and execute work in accordance with the Company’s basic management policies. The Board of Directors decides the responsibilities and duties of the Executive Officers, matters regarding supervision and authority, and the mutual relationships among the Executive Officers. An Executive Committee (convening twice a month, in principle), comprising all the Executive Officers has been established as a consultative organ for the Representative Executive Officer and President in making business decisions. The Executive Committee exercises control regarding important matters related to the management of the company’s operations.
Since one of the Directors on HCM’s Board of Directors also previously worked for Hitachi, Ltd., the parent company exerts influence on decisions on our management policy through the views expressed by this Director at Board meetings. However, with the exception of the aforementioned Director, among HCM’s Board of Directors members, three (3) are Outside Directors designated as independent Outside Director, and six (6) are other Directors with no concurrent relationships with Hitachi, Ltd. or companies in the Hitachi Group. This ensures that we are able to make independent management decisions.
HCM’s Compensation Committee sets the policy for deciding the amount of compensation for the company’s board members and executive officers in accordance with regulations stipulated by the Companies Act applicable to companies with a nominating committee, etc. Compensation standards are established commensurate with the capabilities and responsibilities required and after consideration of remuneration levels at other companies. Compensation to Board members consists of a “monthly fee,” which is the basic compensation for full- or part-time service plus an amount calculated in accordance with the Director’s position and whether occupying the seat or not in each committee, and a “year-end allowance,” which is multiplying the “monthly fee” with a constant coefficient. Provided that, the “year-end allowance” may be reduced depending on operating results of the company. Compensation to Executive Officers consists of a “monthly fee” in accordance with the officer’s position referring standards in general, and “performance-linked compensation,” which is determined in line with the Executive Officer’s performance and results achieved in the officer’s responsible duties. For Board members concurrently serving as Executive Officers, no compensation is paid for services provided as a Director of the Board.
