Special notes

5. Matters Concerning Forward Commitment

Under the “Comprehensive Guidelines for Supervision of Financial Instruments Business Operators”, the acquisition of the Property is considered to be a “forward commitment, etc. (Note)” by an investment corporation. If JMF cannot meet its forward commitment, 20% of the expected purchase price shall be paid as a penalty for breach of contract.

The property is currently under construction and is scheduled to be completed in January 2024, and as a result, JMF is exposed to construction completion risks, property transfer risks, and other risks until the building is completed. JMF plans to mitigate these construction completion and property transfer risks by setting the following main points as conditions to payment of the purchase price.

  • Construction of the building in accordance with the design drawings specified in the purchase agreement, acquisition of certification of passed inspection, and acquisition of all permits and approvals required by laws and regulations;
  • Prior written consent of the buyer for any change to the specifications, quantities, and the like of the building;
  • Discussion on a review of sales and other terms (including reduction of the purchase price and postponement of the execution date) if it becomes reasonably clear that the completion date is to be extended by 30 days or more due to a delay in construction work, with the right to terminate the contract in case of a failure to reach agreement (However, if such termination is due to a delay in completion caused by an underground obstruction, and the seller provides the buyer with the basis for such termination based on objective data, and the buyer reasonably accepts such basis as reasonable, then a penalty for breach contract is not permitted.); and
  • Confirmation of compliance by the building with the Architectural Standards Act and other
