1. Changes in Senior Management including Representatives

Since the appointment of Craig Naylor as President and CEO in June 2010, the Company has announced and implemented the three-year Strategic Management Plan (“SMP”), based on the Company’s long-term vision published in 2006. In response to the significant deterioration of the business environment thereafter, the Company announced and began implementing profit improvement programs in February 2012. The fundamental direction of the Company remains valid and the management changes are intended to further expedite the process of improving the Company’s performance.

2. Effective Date of Change
