2.Reasons for changes to reportable segments

The Group has operated Architectural Glass and Automotive Glass, both of which are based on float glass, as subsegments within the Glass segment. However, the Group is working to strengthen high-value-added products for Architectural Glass and expand mobility-related products for Automotive Glass. The Group will change the reportable segments to Architectural Glass and Automotive Glass in line with the shift to business operations that emphasize the unique strategies of both businesses and decision-making speed.

As announced on November 2, 2022, AGC established a new Life Science Company on January 1, 2023, so the reportable segments will be changed to Chemicals and Life Sciences.
