Notice of Allotment of Stock Acquisition Rights as Stock Options for a Stock-Based

Compensation Plan to Directors and Executive Officers

Brother Industries, Ltd. (the "Company") hereby announces as follows that it has resolved at its meeting of the Board of Directors held on June 23, 2021 to carry out an allotment of stock acquisition rights in the form of stock options for a stock-based compensation plan to Directors (excluding outside Directors and part-time Directors) and Executive Officers (excluding Executive Officers who concurrently serve as Directors and Executive Officers who are national of a country other than Japan and a non-resident of Japan) of the Company, and the details thereof, in accordance with the provisions of Articles 238 and 240 of the Companies Act in order to increase incentives to Directors and Executive Officers to be committed to the long-term enhancement of business performance. The Company has been adopting the stock options plan for Directors (excluding outside Directors and part-time Directors) since June 2006 and expanded the scope of application to Executive Officers (excluding Executive Officers who concurrently serve as Directors) in April 2009.

Details

1. Reason for issuance of stock options for a stock-based compensation plan to Directors and Executive Officers

The Company issues stock acquisition rights in the form of stock options for a stock-based compensation plan to Directors (excluding outside Directors and part-time Directors) and Executive Officers (excluding Executive Officers who concurrently serve as Directors and Executive Officers who is a national of a country other than Japan and a non-resident of Japan) with the purpose of linking the compensation system for Directors and Executive Officers with the share price of the Company's shares and of increasing their incentives to be committed to the long-term enhancement of business performance and corporate value.

2. Terms and conditions of issuance of stock acquisition rights

  1. Persons eligible for allotment of stock acquisition rights and number of such persons, and number of stock acquisition rights to be allotted

615 rights in total.

(Of the total number above, 351 rights will be allotted to 6 Directors of the Company (excluding outside Directors and part-time Directors) and 264 rights will be allotted to 13 Executive Officers of the Company (excluding Executive Officers who concurrently serve as Directors and Executive Officers who is a national of a country other than Japan and a non-resident of Japan).

  1. Class and number of shares to be issued upon exercise of stock acquisition rights
    The class of shares to be issued upon exercise of stock acquisition rights shall be common stock of the Company, and the number of shares to be issued per stock acquisition right exercised shall be 100 shares.
    If the Company conducts a stock split or consolidates its stock after the allotment date of the stock acquisition rights (the "Allotment Date"), the number of shares to be issued upon exercise of each stock acquisition right shall be adjusted in accordance with the following formula. The adjustment, however, shall be made only to the number of shares to be issued upon exercise of those stock acquisition rights which have not yet been exercised at the time.
    Number of shares after the adjustment =
    Number of shares before the adjustment x ratio of stock split or ratio of stock consolidation
    If the Company performs a merger, demerger, share exchange or share transfer (collectively, "Merger, etc."), conducts a gratis allotment of shares, or otherwise requires adjustment of the number of shares to be issued upon exercise of stock acquisition rights, the Company may adjust the number of shares underlying the stock acquisition rights to a reasonable extent, taking into consideration the conditions of the Merger, etc. or the gratis allotment of shares.
    Any fractional amounts of less than one share arising from the adjustment above shall be rounded off.
  2. Total number of stock acquisition rights
    615 rights
    The total number above represents the number of stock acquisition rights scheduled to be allotted, and if the total number of stock acquisition rights to be allotted is reduced due to a shortage of applications for subscription or due to any other reason, the total number of stock acquisition rights to be issued shall be the total number of stock acquisition rights to be allotted.
  3. Amount to be paid upon exercise of stock acquisition rights and calculation method of that amount
    No payment of money shall be required in exchange for stock acquisition rights.
    Stock acquisition rights are issued as compensation to Directors or Executive Officers equivalent to a fair evaluation under corporate accounting standards as of the Allotment Date and therefore do not fall under favorable issuance.
  4. Value of property to be contributed upon exercise of stock acquisition rights and calculation method of that value

The contributions upon exercise of each stock acquisition right shall be made in money, and the value thereof shall be calculated by multiplying the amount per share to be paid upon exercise of stock acquisition rights, set at one yen, by the number of shares to be issued per stock acquisition right exercised.
