Purposes and Reasons of the Disposal

TMC has resolved at the Meeting of the Board of Directors held on May 8, 2019 to newly introduce a restricted stock compensation plan (the “Plan”) for the members of the Board of Directors of TMC (excluding outside members of the Board of Directors) and the Operating Officers of TMC who don’t serve as a Board of Directors to work to improve the medium- to long-term corporate value of TMC, and to promote management from the same viewpoint as our shareholders with a stronger sense of responsibility as a corporate manager..

In addition, at the 115th Ordinary General Meeting of Shareholders held June 13, 2019, share compensation was approved by the shareholders to set a maximum amount of 4.0 billion yen per year and of 800,000 shares per year for the number of shares to be allotted as the restricted stock for the Board of Directors of TMC (excluding outside members of the Board of Directors).

 

3.

Outline of the Plan and the allocation contract of the restricted stock (the “Allocation Contract”)

 

Eligible persons    Members of the Board of Directors of TMC (excluding outside members of the Board of Directors) and the part of the Operating Officers of TMC who don’t serve as a Board of Director (the “Eligible Persons”)
Amount of the share compensation payable to each Eligible Person    Set each year considering factors such as corporate results, duties, and performance

Type of shares to be allotted and

method of allotment

   Issue or disposal of common shares (with transfer restrictions under an allotment agreement)
Amount to be paid for each share    Determined by the Board of Directors of TMC based on the closing price of TMC’s common shares on the Tokyo Stock Exchange on the business day prior to each resolution of the Board of Directors, within a range that is not particularly advantageous to the Eligible Persons
Transfer restriction period    A period of between 3 and 50 years, as determined by the Board of Directors of TMC

Conditions for removal of transfer

restrictions

  

Restrictions will be removed upon the expiration of the transfer restriction period.

However, restrictions on all of the allotted shares which the eligible person have will also be removed in the case of resignation from any position as a Board of Director, an Operating Officer who don’t serve as a Board of Director, or an Audit & Supervisory Board member of TMC due to expiration of the term of office or other legitimate reasons

Gratis acquisition by TMC    TMC will naturally acquire at no cost all of the allotted shares for which the transfer restrictions have not been lifted at the time of the expiration of the transfer restriction period, or at the time of the lifting of the transfer restrictions stipulated. Other grounds for the gratis acquisition shall be stipulated by the Allocation Contract of the restricted stock based on a resolution of the Board of Directors of TMC

This time, after the consideration of the objectives of the Plan, TMC’s business performance, the scope of duties of the Eligible Persons and various factors, TMC decided to pay a total amount of 573,904,600 yen in monetary compensation claims (the “Monetary Compensation Claims”) for the granting of 80,900 common shares of TMC to the nine Eligible Persons.

Based on the Plan, the nine Eligible Persons to whom disposal of shares is scheduled to be allotted will pay in as property contributed in kind all the Monetary Compensation Claims and receive the disposal of common shares of TMC (the “Allotted Shares”) upon the Disposition of Treasury Stock.

The breakdown of the nine Eligible Persons and transfer restriction period are as follows.

 

The Eligible Persons    Transfer restriction period                

A  Members of the Board of Directors (excluding outside members of the Board of Directors) and the part of the Operating Officers of TMC

  

50 years

(June 26, 2020~June 26, 2070)

  

B   The part of the Operating Officers of TMC who don’t serve as a Board of Director and are not an allottee of A

  

3 years

(June 26, 2020~June 26, 2023)

  

To prevent the transfer, creation of a security interest on, or disposal of the allotted shares for as long as the restrictions are in effect, the Eligible Persons deposit the Allotted Shares in dedicated accounts with Nomura Securities Co., Ltd. for the administration during the transfer restriction period.

 

4.

Basis for calculating the amount to be paid in for the disposal price and other specific details

The Disposition of Treasury Stock to the prospective recipients of the allotted shares will be made by way of in-kind contribution of the Monetary Compensation Claims paid for granting restricted shares under the Plan for the Company’s 116th business term. To avoid issuing the shares based on arbitrary decisions on price, the closing price of the common shares of TMC on the First Section of the Tokyo Stock Exchange of 7,094 yen on June 10, 2020 (the business day immediately prior to the Resolution Date), is taken to be the disposal price. Since this was the market price immediately before the date of the resolution of the Board of Directors, it is believed to be reasonable and not to be particularly advantageous.

 

5.
