3. Issues Expected during the Fiscal Year

In fiscal 2004, DBJ plans to place its largest bond issue to date. We plan to issue \240.0 billion in bonds without a government guarantee (FILP agency bonds). (Prior to this issue, the DBJ's issue totaled \130.0 billion.) As in fiscal 2003, DBJ's policy on bond issues calls primarily for issuing five-year and 10-year bonds on essentially a quarterly basis, taking market conditions and other factors into account. Plans also call for spot bond issues in addition to regularly scheduled bond issues as market conditions and other factors dictate.
