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.
