Sumitomo Mitsui Trust Bank 975 Shareholders' Meeting Voting Rights Aggregation Inappropriate Response September 24, 16:59

There was a situation in which the rights of some shareholders were impaired.

Sumitomo Mitsui Trust Bank, Ltd. announced that 975 companies that were entrusted with the work of tabulating documents had inappropriate measures regarding the exercise of "voting rights" in which shareholders express their approval or disapproval of the agenda of the general meeting of shareholders.

The fact that the documents that arrived within the deadline were excluded from the aggregation means that the opinions of some shareholders were not reflected in the vote.
