Notice about the influence of the Thai flood disaster on our subsidiary

November 24, 2011

Dear partners and customers,

We announce the following information on recovery of our subsidiary YOSHITAKE WORKS (Thailand) Co., Ltd. (herein after referred to as “YWT”).

1. Damage situation
Water level at Saha Rattana Nakorn Industrial Estate, where YWT is located, has been gradually lowered, however, properties in YWT are still water-covered and YWT is currently forced to suspend its production.
As of today, the flood has not caused any human damage on both YWT staffs and personnel dispatched from Yoshitake, Inc.

2. Recovery
We have set up a temporary office in Thailand to start recovery work, and started to prepare for production in a temporary factory. In Japan, we have started manufacturing of some models, which has been transferred from YWT to our Komaki plant as part of temporary measures.

3. Product delivery
Please kindly note that there could be some cases where we cannot supply requested models. In such cases, we will make our best effort to meet the needs of our partners and customers by production in Japan or offering alternative products. Please contact us for further information.

We deeply regret any inconveniences this may cause to our partners and customers, and sincerely ask their understanding during this challenging time.
