ST. PETER PORT, Guernsey, May 15, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- At theA Board of Director's MeetingA held on May 15, 2019, the Company adopted a resolution to dissolve and liquidate the Prospect Japan Fund Limited (hereinafter referred to as "TPJF"), currently a consolidated subsidiary of the Company as follows.Note1.A A A A  Reasons for DissolutionThe Company acquired all the shares of TPJF as of July 27, 2017 at which time TPJF became a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company (hereinafter, the transaction shall be referred to as "Making TPJF a Subsidiary"). The acquisition was done with consideration of collaborating with companies held by TPJF (hereinafter referred to as "TPJF investment target companies"). TPJF owned shares in those companies (hereinafter referred to as "TPJF investment target companies shares"). The purpose of the acquisition included collaboration with TPJF Investment target companies, reinvestment of the funds from sales of TPJF investment target companies shares, as well as the strengthening of the Company's financial structure through Making TPJF a Subsidiary, as TPJF was a debt-free business. Although Making TPJF a Subsidiary has accomplished some of these goals, we no longer plan to carry out managing TPJF investment target companies through TPJF. In Making TPJF a Subsidiary, its assets including TPJF-invested company shares (hereinafter referred to as "TPJF-owned assets") were held in a subsidiary of the Company. Through the transferring TPJF investment target companies shares to the Company, the Company will directly hold TPJF-owned assets, and we can then expect efficiency in the decision making process regarding these assets.Based on the above, the Company has determined that it is necessary to dissolve and liquidate TPJF.2.A A A A  Future PolicyThe Company aims to recover our business performance by focusing management resources on the renewable energy business.With regard to the assets held by TPJF, we will consider effective utilization in implementation of strategic measures mainly in reinvestment in such business.
