Announcement regarding Establishment of an Overseas Special Purpose

Subsidiary and Issuance of “Non-Dilutive” Preferred Securities

Mizuho Financial Group, Inc. (“MHFG”) hereby announces that its board of directors has resolved today to issue preferred securities (“Preferred Securities”) as set forth below through an overseas special purpose subsidiary so as to increase the group’s capital base to secure the agility and to improve the flexibility of our future capital strategy. For the purpose of issuing Preferred Securities, MHFG plans to establish a wholly owned subsidiary in the Cayman Islands (“Cayman SPC”).

The issuance of Preferred Securities, which are non-cumulative perpetual preferred securities issued by the Cayman SPC, is expected to increase Tier 1 capital of MHFG, as it will increase Minority Interest in Consolidated Subsidiaries. The contemplated transaction is also expected to increase Tier 1 capital of Mizuho Bank, Ltd. and Mizuho Corporate Bank, Ltd., which are the banking subsidiaries of MHFG. The Preferred Securities are not convertible into common stock of MHFG.
