Note: If you are unable to attend the OGM, you are strongly urged to use the online forms for voting or appointing a proxy because Article 26 of the Teikan (Articles of Incorporation) states that the OGM will not be legally valid unless at least one-tenth of all members are present.

We look forward to seeing you online.
