Scandals and profitability in focus as Japanese companies hold shareholder meetings

Investors are keeping a close eye on listed companies in Japan for their regulatory compliance and earning power as the country’s annual general meeting season gets into full swing this week.

The surge in compliance follows a series of test-fraud scandals at automakers, while the focus on profitability has led institutional and other investors to submit a flurry of shareholder proposals.

According to the Tokyo Stock Exchange, the shareholder meeting season will peak on June 27, when 668 companies, or 29.5% of all TSE-listed companies closing their books in March, plan to hold general shareholder meetings.
