Stock Split
On October 1, 2013 (Japan time), the Company split each share of its common stock, which were held by shareholders of record at the close of business on September 30, 2013 (Japan time), into two (2) shares. Prior to the Stock Split, each ADS of the Company represented one common share of the Company. Each common share of the Company is now represented by two common shares of the Company.

As a result, on October 8, 2013 (New York time), the ADS holders of record at the close of business on September 27, 2013 (New York time), received a distribution of one additional ADS for every ADS then owned. The number of issued ADSs doubled, and the price per ADS was reduced by approximately one-half.
As a result of the stock split, the Company is required to make available to all shareholders Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Form 8937 which provides information about the stock split. Please see the link below to access IRS Form 8937.
