Outside Directors and Outside Auditors

Mitsui Fudosan appoints its outside directors with the expectation that they will contribute their extensive experience and broad knowledge to the Company’s management, and that they will play an appropriate role in strengthening the audit function of the Board of Directors and ensuring transparency. The Company also appoints its outside auditors with the expectation that they will bring an objective stance to auditing the directors in the performance of their duties, based on their expert knowledge and extensive experience. Note that, in line with Tokyo Stock Exchange requirements for judging the independence of independent officers, the Company uses the following standards for judging said independence: whether there is a risk of conflicts of interest with any of the Company’s general shareholders; whether any special interests exist with the Company; and whether in working to enhance the soundness and transparency of the Company’s management, the individual is capable of making objective, fair and impartial judgments.

Mitsui Fudosan has appointed outside directors since 2005, and is working to enhance corporate value by strengthening its governance foundation.
