Progress of Medium-Term Management Plan “Dentsu 2017 and Beyond”

Improving corporate value

  • Now, the last of the five points. Let me introduce our initiatives for improving our corporate value.
  • In line with M&A and other growth measures, the Dentsu Group has improved shareholder returns, including stable dividend distribution and share buyback in the previous fiscal year.
  • We strongly feel the great expectations of our shareholders and investors for our Group’s performance, that is, achieving high growth outside Japan through Dentsu Aegis Network while working on changes and expanding profits of the core Japan business.
  • To improve the effectiveness of the Group governance system, we decided to discuss a shift to a company with an audit and supervisory committee at our shareholders meeting in March, with the goal of improving our corporate value in the mid- to long-term.
  • We will also submit an agenda of selecting three independent outside directors who are to comprise at least one third of the board members.
  • We will continue to work on improving our corporate value in the medium and long term.
