Additionally, the Company will establish the alternative measures in the event that the public notice can not be made by electronic method due to unavoidable reasons. (Article 5 in the proposed amendment)
(2) As the "Corporate Law" (Law No. 86, 2005) and the "Law regarding the Development of Laws Related to the Enforcement of the Corporate Law" (Law No. 87, 2005) came into effect on May 1, 2006, the Company would like to make amendments to its Articles of Incorporation as follows:
(a) The Company will establish, for the Company's organization, the Board of Directors, Corporate Auditors, the Board of Corporate Auditors and Accounting Auditors. The Company will thus establish new provisions concerning the Regulations of the Board of Directors and the Regulations of the Board of Corporate Auditors, and new Chapter concerning Accounting Auditors in the Articles of Incorporation so as to clarify the position of each within the organization. (Article 4, Article 29 and Article 38, and Chapter VI in the proposed amendment)
(b) In order that it shall be deemed that the Company has provided shareholders with necessary information by disclosing the reference materials for a general meeting of shareholders via the Internet, the Company would like to establish new provisions "Disclosure via the Internet and Deemed Provision of Proxy Materials for General Meeting of Shareholders", in order to improve the convenience for shareholders and rationalize administration of the general meeting of shareholders. (Article 17 in the proposed amendment)
(c) Along with the authorization of resolutions in writing by the Board of Directors, only when all Directors consent and unless Corporate Auditors dissent, shall it be deemed that resolutions in writing by the Board of Directors are duly adopted. Accordingly, the Company would like to establish new provisions concerning the resolution in writing by the Board of Directors for flexible holding of meetings of the Board of Directors and ensuring their efficient administration.
