Acquisition of Stock

An acquisition by one company of another in which the acquiring company buys the target company's stock. That is, rather than paying with debt or some other means, an acquisition of stock occurs when the acquiring company buys a majority of the target company's shares outstanding. This may be associated with a hostile takeover, where the acquiring company buys shares directly from stockholders, but this is not always the case. See also: Leveraged buyout.

The Company believes that (i) in contrast to stock acquisitions through a registered public tender offer, which ensure transparency with respect to information disclosure and fairness among shareholders of the target company, the said stock acquisition by Livedoor using ToSTNeT-1 (the "Acquisition") is far from a transparent and fair transaction for shareholders of the Company, since control premiums for the Acquisition were paid only to some of the shareholders of the Company, and that (ii) the Acquisition is at least against the purposes of the Japanese tender offer regulations and, moreover, there is doubt about its legality.
