vol.25 July 2022
Last month, June, was a month of many shareholder meetings. This has a lot to do with the fact that more than half of companies with over $1 million capital begins their fiscal year in April, which we mentioned in the opening message of the newsletter in April. This is especially true for June 29, which is the date that 26% of listed companies that hold their ordinary shareholders’ meeting in June took place on. In the past, there is a year that 96% of companies held it on this date. The early web disclosure of meeting notices and the electronic voting have expanded the opportunities for shareholders to exercise their rights. The number of companies holding virtual shareholders’ meetings, especially under COVID-19, has increased, providing shareholders with greater opportunities to attend and participate from distant locations. While an increasing number of companies are providing English-language convocation notices, there are still some issues to be addressed, such as the fact that general meetings are mostly held only in Japanese but seems that the environment is gradually becoming to facilitate the participation by people from overseas.
Why did we take up the topic of June in July? Recently, an increasing number of companies are holding or considering holding their general shareholders' meetings in July to avoid the concentrated holding dates.

Aberrant EVI1 splicing contributes to EVI1-rearranged leukemia
・A novel EVI1 splice isoform is frequently expressed in poor-prognostic leukemia harboring inv(3)/t(3;3) and drives myeloid transformation.
・Frequent SF3B1 mutations in inv(3)/t(3;3) leukemia generate a novel EVI1 isoform with an altered second Zinc finger DNA-binding domain.
・These results explain the reason why splicing factor SF3B1 mutation is very frequently mutated in inv(3)/t(3;3) leukemia
