Yamaha's strengths can be seen in the solid position of the Yamaha brand, which is founded on the Company's core products boasting superior profitability and market shares. Another characteristic of Yamaha is that the human resources who were involved in various business fields back when the Company was engaged in diversified businesses are now driving the growth of businesses in different fields. Yamaha employees are diligent and adaptable, and I also have praise for Yamaha's decisiveness, as seen in its active appointment of talented individuals to new business fields.

  • Conversely, Yamaha's employees seem to be more reserved than those of other Japanese companies. I therefore hope that employees will find a way to break out of their own shells. In terms of corporate governance, Yamaha has been enhancing its systems to accommodate the evolution of its business from a domestic affair to a global enterprise. Even with these advancements, it is important to remember that there is no endpoint to the enhancement of governance. A company must always pursue new pinnacles of governance, and this is more true today than ever.

If a company hopes to achieve ongoing growth, it is imperative for it to practice constant self-analysis in order to build upon its strengths and overcome its weaknesses. Yamaha has proceeded to revise its organizations and business domains through selection and concentration. However, the Company must not become complacent with its success thus far, but should rather continue to evolve in this fashion. In pursuing such evolution, it will be important for Yamaha to evaluate the areas in which it can capitalize on its existing strengths and exercise its competitiveness when it seeks to start new business with its eyes looking five to 10 years down the line.

  • Luckily, Yamaha currently has an incredibly strong balance sheet, no doubt a product of constant effort on the part of its forebears. Finding an outlet for exercising this financial com- petitiveness will be an important area of consideration going forward. I also hope to the see the Company engaged in more substantive discussion on how best to conduct forward- looking growth and strategic investments while striking a balance with shareholder returns.

Yamaha's Mission and Future Expectations

Yamaha's business consists of music instruments, audio equipment, golf products, and resorts, and could thus be called an entertainment business based on a broad definition. The role, the mission, of an entertainment business is to bring joy to people around the world. When I see the joy in the eyes of children attending Yamaha's music schools across the globe, I cannot help but feel that the ongoing development of this business, which brings joy and enriches lives, will contribute to the accomplishment of the SDGs. Of course, one cannot deny the importance of generating profit in the short term. However, the increased social emphasis on sustainability has created a need for companies to focus on both

long-term profitability and the resolution of social issues. There may be times when this approach places downward pressure on short-term earnings, but I believe that it is the responsibility of Yamaha's management to commit itself to a sustainability-minded approach with a sense of decisiveness shaped by an understanding of the future growth potential of its businesses and Yamaha's role and mission.

  • As an outside director and a member of the Audit Committee, I look to identity obstacles to Yamaha's ongoing growth as well as means of removing these obstacles while also helping drive the enhancement of corporate governance.

Changes in Corporate Governance

Yamaha views corporate governance as fundamental for improving the quality of overall management, and as an essential aspect of sustainable development for a corpora- tion. Furthermore, the Company is aware of the need to constantly reform and improve corporate governance systems once they have been put into place.

  Yamaha has consistently taken steps to strengthen corpo-

rate governance, such as introducing an operating officer

Reinforcement of Oversight Functions

In a bid to accelerate management, the Company has separated functions for business oversight and execution. Yamaha has reinforced oversight functions by increasing the ratio of independent outside directors. As of June 25, 2021, independent outside directors comprised three-fourth of the members on the Board of Directors (please see Ratio of Outside Directors to the right).

Performance-Linked Compensation

In 2017, Yamaha increased the ratio of performance-linked compensation for directors responsible for business execution and executive officers after completely revising the officer compensation system with the objective of aligning the values of management with shareholders and providing

Executive officers regularly report on the status of business execution to the Board of Directors, and the Board of Directors oversees business execution by executive officers.
