Silent Period

In order to prevent the leakage of financial information and to ensure fairness of information disclosure,
the Company has adopted a "silent period" that commences about two weeks prior to the date
when the financial statements for the fiscal term are released. During this period, we will not make
any comments nor respond to any questions concerning our business results for the relevant period.
However, if we determine during the silent period that the results will differ from our forecast significantly,
we will disclose the relevant information in a timely manner. During the silent period, we will respond
to any questions concerning information that has already been released.
