(Note) The requirements for adoption for each matter resolved were as follows:

Proposition Nos. 2 and 3 Attendance of shareholders who hold at least one-third of voting rights of the shareholders eligible to exercise voting rights, and approval by a majority of the voting rights of such shareholders

(3)Reason why a portion of the number of voting rights of the shareholders present at the Meeting was not included in the number of voting rights exercised as the manifestation of intention of approval, disapproval or abstention

By taking into account the number of voting rights exercised prior to the Meeting using the Voting Rights Exercise Form or via the Internet, etc. and the number of voting rights of the shareholders present at the Meeting whose intention of approval was confirmed, all the matters resolved satisfied the requirements for adoption and the resolutions were legally reached in compliance with the Corporate Law. Therefore, the number of voting rights of the shareholders present at the Meeting whose intention of approval, disapproval or abstention was not confirmed was not included in the calculation.
