The Board of Directors of Eisai Co., Ltd. (Chair: Tadashi Kurachi) today approved the continuation of the “Policy for Protection of the Company's Corporate Value and Common Interest of Shareholders” (the “Policy”) which was proposed by Eisai's Independent Committee of Outside Directors (“ICOD”).

The Policy was originally proposed by the ICOD members in the Board of Directors meeting on February 28, 2006, and was implemented. The Board of Directors also determined that the Policy shall be deliberated to maintain, review or abandon by the new ICOD members, which is elected at the Board of Directors Meeting every year following the Ordinary General Meeting of Shareholders.

In FY 2007, the ICOD meeting was held after the 95th Ordinary General Meeting of Shareholders on June 22 with a total of seven members including one-newly appointed members, where a decision to propose the continuation of the present Policy to the Board of Directors meeting was agreed.

The ICOD determined that it was appropriate to continue the Policy on the basis of the resolution at the Board of Directors meeting in consideration of the following conditions:
  (1)The Policy is operated under the initiative of the ICOD, and thereby precluding arbitrary actions by the Management.
  (2)The Policy shall be deliberated to maintain, review or abandon every year.
  (3)Shareholders' intentions shall be reflected through electing the Directors at the Ordinary General Meeting of Shareholders every year.
