Views for Investment Unit

We aware that securing liquidity of our shares is an important issue, and we recognize reducing the investment unit as a certain method of securing liquidity.

Policies For Investment Unit

Based on above, we consider the current liquidity is at a satisfactory level. With that background, we do not plan to implement immediately reduction of the investment unit.
We intend to review in the future to place an emphasis on liquidity, taking into the trading participants, situation of shareholder composition, the buying and selling patterns of the market, cost-effectiveness, and other factors. Also we will weigh the needs and time more carefully for long-term corporate value improvement.
