Shareholder Special Benefit Plan

Shareholder Special Benefit Plan

The shareholder special benefit plan was introduced in appreciation for the ongoing support of shareholders and to increase the appeal of holding the Company’s stock over the medium to long term.

Eligible Shareholders

Shareholders who hold 1,000 or more shares for one year or longer, entered or recorded on the register of shareholders as of June 30 and/or December 31 each year, will be eligible.

  1. Note: In stock lending transactions, the securities company conducting the transaction may be registered as the shareholder. Such cases are ineligible for the shareholder special benefit plan.

Special Benefit Item for Shareholders

Twice yearly, the Company will present shareholders with a “QUO Card” corresponding to the number of shares held on the exercise date, as shown below.

The shareholding period is calculated based on the number of shares continuously listed or recorded under the same shareholder number in the register of shareholders as of the end of June and the end of December each year. Please note that the shareholding period is different depending on the actual timing of the purchase.
