TOKYO, JAPAN - February 9, 2022 - Terumo Corporation (TSE: 4543) today announced that in conjunction with the new 5-Year Growth Strategy with a 10-Year Vision (GS26) starting next fiscal year, the company will implement a new Executive Officers' Management System effective from April 1, 2022 onwards. This new management system will redefine the responsibilities of both the Executive Officers representing the entire Terumo Group and the Executive Officers representing Terumo Corporation.

The current Executive Officers' Management System was implemented in 2002 with its structure built mainly around the headquarter in Japan . Since then, Terumo has rapidly expanded its business globally. The new Executive Officers' Management System will play a part to enhance Terumo Group's competitiveness on a global level and to achieve our visions defined in GS26.

The changes implemented in the new Executive Officers' Management System is as follows.

1. Establishment of Group Executive Officer (GEO)

Group Executive Officers will be responsible to set management directions and to discuss Terumo Group management strategies beyond business divisions and regions.

The GEO will be structured around Directors and Executive Officers such as the Chairman of the Board, the President and CEO, Company Presidents, Corporate Function Executives, CEOs of Major Business Subsidiaries, and Regional Representatives.

Furthermore, among the GEO structure, the Group Managing Executive Officer (GMEO) will take part in the Executive Management Meeting (EMM) as a core member to execute management strategies for the Terumo Group. By definition, the GMEOs must be a Managing Executive Officer/Senior Managing Executive Officer or higher.

2. Redefinition of Executive Officer (EO)

Executive Officers are those who are not part of GEO and is responsible for making decisions for their Company or Function.

In addition, the new Executive Officers' Management System clarifies each members' job description based on their position and responsibility. Appointment of each Executive Officer will be based on this clarified criteria and process. For Terumo Corporation in Japan, positions above managers will also implement the same methodology and approach.

With the new Executive Officers' Management System taking place, Terumo will strive towards realizing GS26 and further drive global growth.
