Proxy Statement Changes

A. We disclosed that each of our executive officers other than Masatsune Okajima has in place an executive employment agreement that, among other things, includes provisions (i) granting us the right, upon termination of such agreement, to engage such executive officer as a consultant with compensation consisting of 15% of the officer's base salary in effect prior to termination and (ii) requiring that certain payments be made upon a change in control or termination of the officer. However, we do not have an executive employment agreement in place with Dr. Kazuko Matsuda, who was promoted to an executive officer position in September 2011.
