• Q.How is S-OIL’s board of directors composed?

      S-OIL’s board of directors consists of one inside director, four non-standing directors, and six outside directors. On the board, the outside directors occupy a majority and this improves transparency in the operation of the board. A director’s term of office is one year. By separately appointing the representative director and CEO and the chair of the board of directors, we realized enhancement in the expertise and responsible management by the CEO and ensured that the board of directors can supervise the Company’s operations objectively.
      Regular board of directors meetings are held every quarter and ad hoc meetings are held whenever necessary in order to resolve important issues of the Company. In order to meet the quorum requirement, general agenda items are passed with the approval of a majority of the directors present, while special agenda items are passed with the approval of two-thirds of the directors present. Directors can also vote via videoconferencing.
