In addition, among the series of purchases and sales of OHT shares for the same period as described above, they conducted fake sales and purchases for a total of 723 shares on four trading days without the purpose of transfer of right by selling and purchasing the shares at the same time, under the name of B and two others persons via seven securities firms, for the purpose of misleading others about the state of sales and purchases of the shares such as misleading others into believing that sales and purchases of the shares were thriving.
