It shall consist of the total of two remuneration components based on the financial results of AON Co., Ltd. and the results achieved by individual officers.
    →The corporate performance-based remuneration payable to executive officers shall be a multiple of the standardized remuneration based on the degree to which AON has achieved its designated financial targets.
