Notice concerning Acquisition and Cancellation of First Series Model AA Class Shares

Toyota Motor Corporation ("TMC") hereby informs you that, regarding the First Series Model AA Class Shares (the "Class Shares"), its board of directors resolved at a meeting held on December 14, 2020 to exercise TMC's cash call option to acquire all outstanding Class Shares and, subject to such acquisition, to cancel all Class Shares pursuant to Article 178 of the Companies Act of Japan, as follows.

1. Reason for the Acquisition and Cancellation of the Class Shares

Under the circumstances in which the pace of technological advancement in the automobile industry was gaining every day, TMC believed that, in order to enhance its medium-to-long-term corporate value, it was imperative to continue to produce cutting-edge and next-generation technologies which contributed more than ever to society and the environment, and TMC issued the Class Shares in July 2015 in order to ensure funds for investment in next-generation technologies, towards the challenge for the future of achieving a better car society.

Through the issuance of the Class Shares, TMC has steadily invested in the future, such as (i) investment in new areas, known as "CASE", which refers to "Connected", "Autonomous/Automated", "Shared" and "Electric", (ii) development of next generation environmentally friendly cars, and (iii) alliances with partners, including those in different industries.

The purpose of the issuance of the Class Shares was to lay a foundation for the future mobility society through such investment. TMC believes that it has achieved certain results, and resolved, at its board of directors meeting held today, to acquire all outstanding Class Shares and cancel all Class Shares.

The pace of the environmental changes surrounding the automobile industry and of technological advancement is increasing. TMC will continue to strive for the future in accordance with the changing times.
