Notice Regarding Policy to Support Fujitsu Component Through Subscription to Preferred Shares

Fujitsu Limited

Tokyo, March 27, 2009

Fujitsu Limited ("Fujitsu") today announced that it has decided on a policy to financially support its consolidated subsidiary Fujitsu Component Limited (Securities Code: 6719, "Fujitsu Component") by subscribing to a 2.0-billion-yen offering of new preferred shares to be issued by Fujitsu Component.

The date of issue, terms and conditions, and other details of the preferred shares will be decided through consultations between the two companies.

1. Purpose of the Capital Support

The sharp deterioration in worldwide economic conditions from the second half of fiscal 2008 has had a severe impact on the business of Fujitsu Component.

It is expected that severe conditions in Fujitsu Component's markets, which include the onboard equipment, industrial equipment, and data communications markets, will continue for some time. As a result of the deterioration in the company's operating results, the planned recognition of one-time losses due to business reforms and other factors, it is projected that Fujitsu Component's liabilities will exceed its assets in the first half of its 2009 fiscal year.

From the standpoint of maintaining corporate value, Fujitsu believes that it is necessary to eliminate the risk that a capital deficiency at Fujitsu Component might have a material adverse effect on the business of Fujitsu Component. Fujitsu therefore has decided on a policy to subscribe to the issue of 2.0 billion yen of preferred shares by Fujitsu Component.
