(1) Losses due to the close of business (e.g. damages caused by the
(please refer to "Reference 1")
-The amount of the sales revenue from the previous year minus the costs
(sales cost) that would have occurred if the business had not been
forced to close down due to the accident will be eligible for
-In addition to the above, the amount of the costs which have arisen in
spite of the close of business (such as labor costs or depreciation
costs, etc.) will also be eligible for indemnification.
(2) Decrease of profit (harmful rumors) (please refer to "Reference 2")
-The part of the information from the previous year multiplied by the
ratio of the decrease of sales caused by the accident will be eligible
for indemnification, as the decrease of profits is partial, different
from the close of business that causes the total loss of sales.
-The calculation method of the amount of sales decrease will depend on
which category the business falls under.

If additional costs have arisen (e.g. costs per withdrawal of products
or disposal) due to the accident, we will indemnify for the actual costs

any damages caused by other factors such as earthquakes or tsunamis,
which are not eligible for this indemnification.
