Duties of Directors and Their appointment

  • The principal duty of the directors is “to recognize their fiduciary responsibility to shareholders and assume the responsibility of sustainably enhancing the SCREEN Group’s corporate value.”
  • SCREEN Holdings’ Nomination and Compensation Advisory Committee is in place to ensure a highly transparent and objective process for appointing and dismissing candidates for director, corporate auditor and corporate officer positions, thereby strengthening the Board of Directors’ supervisory functions.
  • Regarding the nomination of candidates for director positions, candidates are selected in accordance with SCREEN Holding’s “Criteria for Appointing Candidates for Directors” and approved by the Board of Directors after seeking the advice of the Nomination and Compensation Advisory Committee, which comprises a majority of outside directors in addition to Chairman of the Board of Director.
  • Regarding the dismissal of directors, the Board of Directors may propose to dismiss an individual to whom one of “Criteria for Dismissing Directors” apply after seeking the advice of the Nomination and Compensation Advisory Committee. Dismissal of said individual is then finalized at the shareholders meeting based on a resolution passed by the Board of Directors.

Compensation

  • Compensation for directors and corporate auditors is determined by the Board of Directors after seeking the advice of the Nomination and Compensation Advisory Committee, which comprises a majority of outside directors in addition to Chairman of the Board of Director. The total amount of all directors’ compensation shall fall within the limits approved in the shareholders meeting. Compensation for corporate officers is decided by representative directors after seeking the advice of the Nomination and Compensation Advisory Committee.
  • In addition, SCREEN Holdings abolished its prior retirement benefit scheme in 2005 and adopted stock allowances aimed at encouraging recipients to stay conscious of SCREEN Holdings’ medium- to long-term corporate performance and share prices. Moreover, the 76th Ordinary General Meeting of Shareholders held on June 27, 2017, approved the introduction of performance-linked share compensation, which then replaced stock allowances and has been in place since August 2017.
  • Accordingly, compensation for directors and corporate officers now consists of three elements: (a) basic remuneration for fixed cash payment, (b) a short-term performance-linked cash bonus, and (c) share compensation linked with the short- and medium- to long-term performance, and corporate value (shareholder’s value). This compensation scheme better motivates recipients to improve business performance and to increase the medium- to long-term Company’s value (shareholder’s value). The well-balanced scheme allows to develop management personnel, resulting in the sustainable growth of the Company. (Outside directors’ compensation does not include performance-linked share compensation.)
