Change in Shareholders

1.Change in the shareholders of eAccess
We were informed that there was a change in the shareholders of eAccess from the following process. Significant Share Holdings Reports (No.22) were filed to the Kanto Local Finance Bureau by Fidelity Investments Japan Limited ("Fidelity") on June 26, 2008, and we received the copy of the reports. As referring the presence of voting rights to Fidelity, we received the answer of holding the voting rights on September 12, 2008, and were informed the change in the shareholders of eAccess. This announcement was not made until today because time was required to ascertain how many voting rights and shares of stock Fidelity holds.
When we last filed an extraordinary report on changes in major shareholders regarding Fidelity, Fidelity responded that its voting rights holdings were as shown in section 3 below.
