In preparation for emergencies, including natural disasters, Nintendo Co., Ltd. has created the Emergency Action Plan, which outlines the company's initial response to an emergency, and the Business Continuity Plan, which provides a strategy for business restoration. In addition, Nintendo Co., Ltd. has created and published for all employees the Crisis Management Manual, which defines the fundamental actions employees should take in the event of an emergency. Furthermore, Nintendo Co., Ltd. has introduced a system for confirming employee safety in the event of an emergency. We periodically conduct drills to administer the system. Our overseas subsidiaries have also created manuals for responding to emergencies in their various regions. For example, Nintendo of America has defined basic actions for employees at each of its branch offices and conducts periodic training, evacuation drills and other exercises.
