2. Principal stance concerning the calculation of the indemnification 
   amount (please refer to "Appendix 2")
(1) Losses due to the close of business (e.g. damages caused by the 
    evacuation order)
 (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. 

(3) Additional costs
 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 
 within a reasonable range. 
 *Please be advised that we may check if a claim made does not include 
  any damages caused by other factors such as earthquakes or tsunamis, 
  which are not eligible for this indemnification.
