Expansion of the polycarbonate products lineup and transfer of the "Novamid" polyamide business

March 5, 2010

Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation, one of our stockholders, and Royal DSM N.V. (The Netherlands) reached a basic agreement on exchange of engineering plastic businesses (sale of the polyamide business and purchase of the polycarbonate business) and signed the contract on February 26, 2010.
We are now going to file an application to the authorities of antitrust act in the relevant countries. If the procedures for approval go smoothly, we are scheduled to execute the business exchange concerned in the end of May 2010.

According to this agreement on business exchange, "Novamid" polyamide business is transferred.

On the other hand, new polycarbonate products, "Xantar" and "Stapron", will be added to our current lineup. We will succeed to the work of supplying them globally through our global network.

We are going to establish a technical center of MEP Europe (controlling share: 100% by us) in the Netherlands. There, we will reinforce a system for supplying prompt, high-quality technical services of all our engineering plastics products and will attempt further technical development and improvement of support services for customers primarily in Europe.
