Some consolidated subsidiaries have a defined contribution pension plan. KDDI regularly reviews its asset management policies and agencies in accordance with future predictions of retirement payment liabilities. However, going forward the KDDI Group could incur extraordinary losses if a fall in yields on managed pension assets leads to a drop in the market value of the pension fund, or in the event of significant revisions to the actuarial assumptions (such as the discount rate, composition of personnel or expected rate of salary increases) on which planned retirement benefit levels are based.
