      A SUPEX Company should be able to continuously pursue the SUPEX goal, which may shift along with changes in the business environment or the passage of time, by retaining top-tier competitiveness and securing the necessary conditions for long-term survival.
      When a company aims to become a SUPEX Company, it should note that it is difficult in practice to reach this level immediately.
