allucher was established under DoCoMo's internal system to encourage employee entrepreneurship. The subsidiary has been providing marketing and consulting services on the efficient use of mobile phones for businesses, particularly firms that provide products and services for women. However, the changing business environment has made it difficult to continue business, and the subsidiary has been unable to meet its revenue and profit targets, therefore the decision was made to dissolve the company.
The liquidation is expected to be completed in January 2007.

The dissolution is not expected to have significant impact on DoCoMo's consolidated or non-consolidated results of operations. The dissolution does not affect the forecast of DoCoMo's results of operations for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2007.
