Corporate Governance Information
Corporate Governance Structure (as of April 1, 2022)
Communication with Investors and Securities Analysts
To enhance corporate value, we believe it is important to communicate a roadmap for achieving stable long-term cash flow growth and improved capital efficiency, which incorporates a shift to electrification, and for Honda’s future potential to be common knowledge in the capital markets.
Toward this end, our management executives take the initiative in engaging in more active dialogues than ever before through events and individual meetings, so that shareholders, investors, and other stakeholders can fully comprehend and evaluate our management direction.
Through such dialogues, management executives directly grasp what the capital markets are looking for as well as what they are interested in. This valuable feedback from our stakeholders is utilized in management to further improve corporate value.
