Inquiries regarding shares and notification of changes

We ask that shareholders direct all inquiries, including change of address, to their securities company. For those shareholders who do not have an account with a securities firm, inquiries should be directed to the agent above.

Regarding the 'special account'

Prior to the implementation of the electronic share certificate system in Japan, an account was established with Sumitomo Mitsui Trust Bank, Limited. for shareholders who did not use JASDEC's hofuri system. Such shareholders should direct all matters related to change of address and other inquiries to the agent above.
