Question & Answer Session (Summary)

(November 4, 2014)

Q1. You mentioned in the beginning of this fiscal year that the number of brands will increase from the next fiscal year. Are there changes in the Company’s plans?

A1. There are no changes to the number of brands planned for either pachinko or pachislot machines.

Q2. Is there a possibility that, in light of changes to the model certification test method for pachislot machines, Fields will shift from pachislot machines toward more pachinko machines?

A2. We have always emphasized entertainment over high gambling nature in product development for both pachinko and pachislot machines. In our view, these changes to the model certification test method will curb the high gambling nature aspects of pachislot machines and enhance their entertainment value. This is actually a major opportunity for us, and we have no plans to shift from pachislot to pachinko development and sales.
