The “Law for Partial Amendments to the Law Concerning Book-entry Transfer of Corporate Bonds and Other Securities for the Purpose of Streamlining the Settlement for Trades of Stocks and Other Securities” (Law No. 88 of 2004) will become effective on January 5, 2009 (Monday).

2

Because we can no longer handle fractional shares under the new “book-entry transfer system” after the implementation of the electronic share certificate system, effective January 4, 2009 (Sunday), we will abolish our fractional share system by simultaneously conducting the allotment of shares or fractions of a share without consideration pursuant to the provisions of Article 88 of the “Law Concerning Adjustment and Coordination of Relevant Laws in Association with the Enforcement of the Company Law” (Law No. 87 of 2005) and adopt the unit share system so that fractional shares will be shares constituting less than a minimum investment unit.

3

Effective January 4, 2009 (Sunday), an investment unit of our common stock and respective series of preferred stock will be 100 shares per unit pursuant to the resolution of our Board of Directors on May 15, 2008 (Thursday).
