Proposal No. 1          

Approval of the Proposed Appropriation of Retained Earnings for the 104th Business Period

We have forgone paying dividends since our interim dividend in the
103rd business term and caused great inconvenience to our
shareholders. As our earnings and financial bases have recovered and
strengthened owing to business restructuring efforts in the previous
terms, we are now capable of paying dividends.      However, in view of
the outlook for a continued difficult operating environment and as
indicated in the page A- 23 of the "104th Business Period Report", we
propose to limit our dividend payment to 3 yen at the end of the term
in order to strengthen our operational base.

Furthermore, we propose to resume payments of bonuses to our directors, which were halted for the past two terms.

Proposal No. 2          

Partial Revision to the Articles of Incorporation

The company proposes to amend its Articles of Incorporation as specified below.

The reasons for these amendments are as follows:

i. Amendment to Article 6 : While we do not currently have any specific plans for repurchase of our shares,    we will add a provision in compliance with the revised Commercial Code that will allow our Board of Directors to flexibly buy back our shares in accordance with the conditions of our capital structure.

ii. Amendment to Article 29, 30, 38 : We propose to add a new provision to limit liabilities of Directors and Auditors as permitted by the Commercial Code so that they may adequately perform their expected duties. In order to more easily appoint outside directors who have the ability to objectively oversee our management, we also propose to add a new provision that will allow us to form limited liability agreements with outside directors.

We have already received the approval of this proposal from the Board of Auditors.

The proposed revisions are summarized below. Revised portions are underlined.
