Dissolution and Liquidation of a Subsidiary Company

On November 26, 2004, the Board of Directors of Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha, Ltd. ("K" LINE) resolved to dissolve and liquidate "K" Line Holding Luxembourg S.A. (the Subsidiary), one of our overseas subsidiary companies.

1. Background to the dissolution and liquidation

The Subsidiary was founded as our wholly-owned financial subsidiary in 1973 in Luxembourg with the principal operation of providing investments and loans of operating funds to our overseas group companies. In recent years, with the relaxation of financial regulations, we have reviewed and rationalized the financing function in our group companies, including overseas financial subsidiaries. As part of this effort, we decided to dissolve and liquidate the Subsidiary.
