(Notes) 1. The total number of voting rights of the shareholders eligible to exercise voting rights was 9,108,498.
2. The requirements for approval for each matter resolved were as follows:
  Proposal No. 1 Approval by a majority vote of the shareholders who are present at the Meeting and eligible to exercise voting rights
Proposal Nos. 2 and 3 Approval by a majority vote of the shareholders present at the Meeting who hold shares representing in aggregate not less than one-third (1/3) of the voting rights of all shareholders who are eligible to exercise voting rights

(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 indicating the intention of “affirmative votes”, “negative votes” or abstentions

The aggregated number of voting rights exercised prior to the Meeting using the Voting Rights Exercise Form or via the Internet and so on and the number of voting rights of the shareholders present at the Meeting whose intention of approval was confirmed, were sufficient to meet the requirements to approve each proposal in accordance with the Japanese Companies Act. Accordingly, the number of voting rights of the shareholders present at the Meeting whose intention of approval, disapproval or abstention could not be confirmed were not included.
