[Notes]
  1. *1
    Under the SoftBank Corp. group's policy on the payment of executive remuneration, the remuneration of Board Director Masayoshi Son and Board Director Kentaro Kawabe is to be excluded from the scope of actual payment since the remu- neration of Directors who concurrently hold posts in SoftBank Corp. group companies is paid from the main company at which they serve, and thus excluded from the figures above accordingly.
  2. *2
    Calculated for Executive Directors and Delegated Senior Vice Presidents
  3. *3
    Delegated Senior Vice Presidents were classified as employees at management positions in FY2020 and as executives in FY2021.
