Note: In order for the warrants to be granted or transferred to the directors and certain employees of the Company and the directors and certain employees of an affiliated company, the Company issued unsecured bonds with detachable warrants. Under section 341-8-4 of the Japanese Commercial Code, the redemption and retirement of these bonds are restricted when the total amount of the bonds is less than the total amount of the issue price of the stocks from unexecuted warrants. To reduce interest costs, the Company repurchased some of the issued bonds after warrants were detached. Based on the above reason, the Company intends to hold the treasury bonds until they can be retired legally which is substantially the same as redemption. Thus, bonds and treasury bonds (6,800 millions of yen as of March 31, 2002 and as of December 31,2001 respectively) are disclosed in net amount in the balance sheet.
