A. We carried out a 1:100 stock split which took effect on July 1, 2012 (Record date: June 30, 2012. Actual allocation date: June 29, 2012). In addition, at the same time, we adopted a new unit stock system with a new basic stock exchange trading unit of 100 shares, which took effect on June 27, 2012 (Wednesday). Hence through this stock split and change in stock trading unit, there has been no change in investment units required in Rakuten shares.
