(4) Conditions of exercise of the subscription warrants
Issue price per share ("exercise price") of shares issuable upon exercise of the subscription warrants is undecided. (As a tentative rule, the exercise price shall be the amount which is the closing price per share of the shares of common stock of the Company on the Tokyo Stock Exchange on the day on which the exercise price is decided (if no closing price is reported on such day, the closing price of the immediately preceding such day should be used). It will be decided at the meeting of the Board of Directors to be held on April 2, 2002):
Any fraction less than one share shall be disregarded. The adjustment of the exercise price will take the market-price format.

The balance of the exercise price (if adjusted pursuant to 18(4) above, the adjusted exercise price) remaining after deduction of the amount to be transferred to stated capital. The amount to be transferred to stated capital shall mean an amount obtained by multiplying the exercise price (if adjusted pursuant to 18(4) above, the adjusted exercise price) by 0.5, with any fraction of one yen occurring as a result of such calculation to be rounded up to a full yen. However, the amount to be so transferred to stated capital for each such share shall not be below the par value of a share of the par value common stock of the Company.
