We identify the officers in charge of voting rights who are key persons among beneficial shareholders and the approval/disapproval of proposals, and provide databases that respond to critical situations. Through the implementation of approval/disapproval simulation (estimation of votes), we constantly understand the risk of proposals being rejected. We secure affirmative votes for the approval of proposals through activities that encourage the exercise of voting rights established by investors, mainly domestic and overseas institutional investors and individual investors, called pure investment.
