Reorganization of Domestic Offices
 

Metal One Corporation (headquartered in Minato-ku, Tokyo; President: Moriji Kanada) devised the following plan to reorganize its domestic offices in the Tohoku, East Japan and Shikoku areas.

(A) Tohoku area
Effective on January 1, 2006, Metal One Tohoku Corporation, a domestic subsidiary, will transfer its construction steel products and processed ferrous raw materials business to Metal One Structural Steel & Resource Corporation (headquartered in Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo; President: Naoto Matsuoka), the core of the Metal One Group's construction steel products and processed ferrous raw materials business. In addition, Metal One Tohoku Corporation's wire rod and wire rod products business will be moved to Metal One Steel Products Corporation (headquartered in Osaka; President: Yoichi Yamane), and its steel sheet and stainless steel business will be transferred to Metal One Corporation. These reorganization measures will result in the dissolution of Metal One Tohoku Corporation.
The employees of Metal One Tohoku Corporation will continue to do their respective work in the companies that undertake the transferred business.

(1) In connection with this reorganization, Metal One Structural Steel & Resource Corporation's Tohoku Office will be upgraded as the Tohoku Branch, becoming the third largest branch after the Kansai Branch and the Chubu Branch. The reorganization will strengthen the branch's functions, allowing it to meet the diverse needs of the customers in the area.
(2) Metal One Steel Products Corporation will establish a Tohoku Branch in Tohoku, a big market for wire rods, and the distribution systems for Kanto and Tohoku will be unified. As a result, the company will become better able to meet the needs of customers in these areas.
(3) Metal One Corporation, by accepting the steel sheet and stainless steel business, will upgrade its service for its customers under product and user strategies.

The Tohoku Branch of Metal One Corporation will continue to exist as a general base for the Metal One Group's operations in the Tohoku area.

(B) East Japan area
The three offices under Metal One Corporation's Higashinihon Branch (the Shizuoka Office, Hokuriku Office and Niigata Office) will strengthen their functions under business and user strategies and, as explained below, will fall under the direction of Metal One Corporation (head office) and the Osaka Branch, respectively, on January 1, 2006. Higashinihon Branch of Metal One Corporation will be closed.
(1) The Shizuoka Office and the Niigata Office will come under the direct control of Metal One Corporation's head office.
(2) The Hokuriku Office will fall under the direct control of the Osaka Branch.

(C) Shikoku area
On January 1, 2006, most transactions undertaken by Metal One's Shikoku Office will be transferred to Metal One Shikoku Corporation (some trade rights will be transferred to the Osaka Branch) and the Shikoku Office will be closed.
