In response to the various indexing needs of our market participants, the TSE will begin calculating and publishing the "TOPIX Active in Asia" index, which focuses on companies that have a high degree of exposure to the Asian region.
TOPIX Active in Asia is a price index whose constituents are selected based on the proportion of sales made in Asia.
|Index name||TOPIX Active in Asia Index|
|Anticipated Launch Date||Fall, 2011|
|Total Return Index||Available|
|Calculation Interval||Disseminated to securities companies, information vendors, etc. in real time (i.e. every 15 seconds) through the Market Information System (MAINS) (price index only).|

As this index is produced in collaboration with a partner company, this partner will be given priority with respect to the acquisition of a license for usage in ETFs (please refer to "Process for Acquiring a License for Domestic ETFs" dated on April 21, 2008 for more information [Japanese only])
