Notes:

1.Requirements for the approval of each proposal are as follows:

 

 1)The resolution for Proposal 1 shall be adopted by a simple majority of the voting rights held by the shareholders present and voting at the Meeting (including postal and electronic voting) in a vote of shareholders holding in aggregate one-third (1/3) or more of the total number of voting rights.
 2)The resolution for Proposal 2 shall be adopted by a two-thirds (2/3) majority of the voting rights held by the shareholders present and voting at the Meeting (including postal and electronic voting) in a vote of shareholders holding in aggregate one-third (1/3) or more of the total number of voting rights.

2.The denominator of the “Ratio of favorable votes” was calculated by adding the number of voting rights held by the present and voting shareholders at the Meeting.

 

(4) Reason why a portion of the voting rights held by the shareholders present at the Meeting was not added to the number of voting rights:

 

The required majority approval for each proposal was met by aggregating the votes exercised prior to the Meeting and votes of shareholders present at the Meeting of which the Corporation was able to confirm the indication as to each proposal. Therefore, of the voting rights held by shareholders present at the Meeting, the number of voting rights concerning the indication of “for,” “against” or abstention” as to each proposal of which the Corporation was not able to verify was not tallied, except as explained in Note 2 to the table of 2.(3) 2) above.
