Notice Regarding Application for Delisting of Shares from the London Stock Exchange
TOKYO, JAPAN, January 31, 2014 --- NTT DOCOMO (the "Company") hereby announces that the Company has resolved at a meeting of its board of directors held today, to request the cancellation of the standard listing of its Shares of Common Stock (ISIN: JP3165650007, the "Shares") from the Official List of the UK Listing Authority and the cancellation of the admission to trading of the Shares on the Main Market of the London Stock Exchange (the "LSE"). The details are as follows:
1. Reason for the delisting
The Company has decided to apply for the delisting due to the low trading volume of the Shares on the LSE, and the Company considers there to be no significant benefit in maintaining the listing.
The Company does not anticipate that such delisting will adversely affect its shareholders or other investors, since the Shares will continue to be listed and tradable on the Tokyo Stock Exchange and the New York Stock Exchange.
2. Delisting schedule
An application has been made to the UK Listing Authority for the Shares to be removed from the Official List and to the LSE for their cancellation from trading. The delisting and cancellation of trading of the Shares on the LSE is expected to be completed by the middle of March 2014.
