Japan’s executives to reveal remuneration under new rules

Sony Corp. and Nissan Motor Co.’s CEO may be among the executives whose salaries are revealed this month for the first time as Japan’s Financial Services Agency is requiring all listed companies to provide that information for the past fiscal year in filings to the Finance Ministry.

Publicly traded companies in Japan will need to provide the names of executives who earn at least JPY100 million (USD1.1 million) and a breakdown of their compensation packages, including stock options, bonuses and retirement payouts, under new corporate disclosure rules.
