Notice Regarding Termination of Release of Monthly Sales Update

Please be informed that we will terminate the release of our monthly sales update on April 24, 2017. We have released the update since January 2014 so that our shareholders and investors can promptly understand our business situation.
With foreign exchange rates and raw material prices having been fluctuating sharply these days, we think it becomes difficult to evaluate our business performance only through year-on-year monthly sales figures. Furthermore, we judge that the figures may mislead our shareholders and investors when they make investment decisions. Consequently, we have decided to terminate the release of our monthly sales update.
Meanwhile, we will continue to disclose our business performance through quarterly earnings reports and quarterly securities reports and hold financial results meetings the same as before. In addition, we will promptly disclose information to our shareholders and investors upon the occurrence of certain events to be disclosed.
