In addition, the “Act for Partial Amendment of the Local Tax Act, etc.” (Act No. 4 of 2014) and the “Act for Partial Amendment of the Local Corporate Tax Act, etc.” (Act No. 11 of 2014) were promulgated on March 31, 2014, and the Company is subject to the amended Local Corporate Tax effective for fiscal years beginning on or after April 1, 2015.As a result, the effective statutory tax rate used to measure the Company’s deferred tax assets and liabilities was changed from 38.01% to 35.64% for the temporary differences expected to be realized or settled from fiscal years beginning April 1, 2014.The announced reduction of the effective statutory tax rate did not have a significant impact on deferred tax assets and liabilities as of March 31, 2014.The Companies Act of Japan provides that an amount equal to 10% of the amount to be disbursed as distributions of capital surplus (other than the capital reserve) and retained earnings (other than the legal reserve) be transferred to the capital reserve and the legal reserve, respectively, until the sum of the capital reserve and the legal reserve equals 25% of the capital stock account. The capital reserve amounted to ¥170,485 million ($1,656,486 thousand), and the legal reserve amounted to ¥21,663 million ($210,491 thousand) at March 31, 2014. Such distribu-tions can be made at any time by resolution of the shareholders or by the Board of Directors if certain conditions are met, but neither the capital reserve nor the legal reserve is available for distributions.9 Shareholders’ Equity64MITSUBISHI ESTATE CO., LTD.
