Management committee

A sharp increase in the number of Independent Directors made it difficult for the Company to convene Board meetings as often as is needed. Therefore, the Company set up committees under the Board in accordance with relevant laws and delegated some of the Board authority to the committees, each of which is filled with Directors who can bring their expertise and experience to the assigned committee.

Board committees, established and operating in accordance with Article 28-2 of Articles of Incorporation, are as set forth:

  • Management Committee
  • Audit Committee
  • Independent Director Recommendation Committee
  • Related Party Transactions Committee
  • Compensation Committee
  • CSR Committee

Each agenda approved by board committees is instantly notified to all Directors, and each Director may call for the convocation of Board meetings within two days from the notice. The Board of Directors may put the resolutions approved by the committees for voting at the Board meeting.

(1) General Description

The Management Committee is a committee under the Board of Directors that deliberates and decides matters either delegated by the Board of Directors, or specified in the Articles of Incorporation or in the Regulation of the Board of Directors with the aim of enhancing professionalism and efficiency in decision-making.
