Consolidation of Shares/Change in the Number of Shares per Share Unit, effective Oct 1 2016

Q What is a “reverse share split (consolidation of shares) ?”

A reverse share split refers to a procedure wherein multiple shares are consolidated to create a smaller number of shares. In this case, the Company consolidated every five shares into one share.

Q What is “change in the number of shares per share unit” all about?

The change in the number of shares per share unit involves altering the number of shares defined as a minimum unit for the exercise of voting rights at the General Meeting of Shareholders and for trading via stock exchanges. The Company changed the number of shares per share unit from 1,000 to 100. 

Q Please explain the purposes of the reverse share split and change in the number of shares per share unit.

The Japanese stock exchanges collectively announced the “Action Plan for Consolidating Trading Units,” which aims to standardize the trading units for common stock issued by all listed domestic corporations at 100 shares, with the plan’s transition period being set to expire on October 1, 2018.
As a corporation listed on the Tokyo Stock Exchange, the Company respects the objectives of the plan and has thus decided to change the number of shares per share unit, or trading unit, for its stock, from 1,000 shares to 100 shares. In addition, the Company executed a reverse share split, with an eye to realizing the level of investment unit (50,000 yen or more and less than 500,000 yen) that is considered desirable by the stock exchange.

Q The reverse share split decreases the number of shares held by shareholders. Won’t there be an impact on the asset value of these shares?

The execution of reverse share split will not change the value of assets and capital held by the Company. Therefore, the asset value of the Company’s shares held by its shareholders will not be affected, unless such value is exposed to changes in stock market conditions or other factors. In fact, although the number of Company shares held by shareholders will decrease to one-fifth of the current number, net assets per share will inversely rise five times with the reverse share split.
Moreover, the theoretical stock price per share will increase five times with the reverse share split.

Q What will be the impact on the amount of cash dividends per share?

With the number of shares held by our shareholders decreasing to one-fifth of the current number through the execution of reverse share split, the Company plans to factor the ratio of the reverse share split (every five shares consolidated into one share) into the calculation of cash dividends per share. Accordingly, the total amount of cash dividends paid to each shareholder will not be affected, unless the Company’s business results fluctuate due to external factors. However, fractional shares of less than one share created through the reverse share split will not be subject to the payment of cash dividends.

Q Can you provide details regarding the number of shares and voting rights held by shareholders?

Following the execution of the reverse share split, the number of the Company’s shares held by its shareholders will decrease to one-fifth of the number presented in the final shareholders’ register as of September 30, 2016. (Fractional holdings of less than one share will be cut off.) Also, the number of voting rights held by shareholders will be one for every 100 shares following the reverse share split.
Examples of the number of the Company’s shares and voting rights held by its shareholders before and after the effective date of the reverse share split and change in the number of shares per share unit are presented on the table below.

In cases where fractional shares of less than one share are created through the reverse share split (as in the case (2), (5) and (6) above), the Company will dispose of all such shares and reimburse their proceeds therefrom to the former holders of such fractional shares in amounts proportional to the former holdings of said shareholders. The Company plans to pay these proceeds to shareholders around December 2016.
As for shareholders who have only four shares (as in the case (6) above) prior to the effective date of reverse share split, their shares will be lost after the reverse share split, as fractional shares are disposed of by the Company. Therefore, those who have four shares or fewer prior to the effective date will lose their status as shareholders. The Company sincerely requests the understanding of such shareholders with regard to this change.

 

Q Is there a way to avoid the creation of fractional shares?

The disposal of fractional shares can be avoided by selling any holdings that could generate fractional shares to the Company or by purchasing additional shares prior to the reverse share split.
For details regarding these procedures, please inquire your servicing securities firm or the administrator of shareholders’ register designated by the Company.

Q I may end up having shares of less than one share unit after the reverse share split. Will the Company purchase such shares or allow me to purchase additional shares to supplement shortfalls?

Even after the execution of reverse share split, shareholders may apply to have such shares purchased by the Company or for the additional purchase of shares to expand their holdings to at least one share unit.
For details regarding these procedures, please direct your inquiries to the securities brokerage firm with which you deal or the administrator of the shareholders’ register designated by the Company.
