Corporate Governance

Basic Policy

RACCOON HOLDINGS positions the strengthening and enriching of corporate governance as a key management task under the recognition that ensuring effective functioning of corporate governance is crucial to ongoing enhancement of corporate value.

An environment in which corporate governance is functioning effectively, in our view, features the building of good relationships with shareholders and other stakeholders (business partners, employees, etc.) and facilitating provision of even better services. To that end, at RACCOON HOLDINGS, we make proactive efforts to establish a framework for implementing timely and appropriate information disclosure and strengthening management oversight functions in order to secure sound, transparent, and objective corporate activities.

RACCOON HOLDINGS will revise as needed and proactively work on the corporate governance framework as the organization grows with business expansion going forward.
