Notwithstanding Paragraph (2) above, the Company may allocate new shares to persons other than existing shareholders of the Company by a resolution of the Board of Directors in any
of the following cases, provided that the aggregate number of shares issued pursuant to items 1 through 7 below shall not exceed 10% of the total number of issued and outstanding shares:
Where the Company invites or cause underwriters to invite subscriptions for new shares;
Where the Company issues new shares through a method of general public offering under Article 189-3 of the Securities and Exchange Act (the SEA);

shares shall be disposed of in accordance with a resolution of the Board of Directors.
The recipient of the new shares shall become a shareholder of the Company the succeeding day of the payment date.
