Tokyo, Japan – February 19, 2008 - Trend Micro (TSE: 4704), a leader in network antivirus and Internet content security software and services, today announced as below.
We recognize that securing liquidity of our shares is an important issue, and we regard reducing the investment unit as a certain method of securing liquidity.
Based on above, we consider the current liquidity is at a satisfactory level. With that background, we have concluded that reducing the investment unit which will incur considerable expense is not necessarily beneficial to all shareholders.
We intend to review in the future the investment unit as needed, taking into consideration the shareholder’s interest and influences to the liquidity of our shares.
