In other words, in order for the Company to compete in the field of semiconductors and IT, a business domain of increased attention and importance in a Society 5.0, we believe the four years from now will be a pivotal period in which the Company must achieve a transformation into a manufacturer that can create and offer products and services with higher added value, that is, higher profitability. This year is the first fiscal year of the plan and initiatives to ensure the Group's Corporate Directors as well as Vice Presidents and Managers have a shared sense of purpose from a management perspective is considered to be one of the keys to achieving this challenging Medium-term Management Plan.

The introduction of the Plan is subject to approval of the proposal for remuneration of Eligible Corporate Directors of Eligible Companies at each Eligible Company's general meeting of shareholders.
