Notice Regarding Change in Business Segments

Fujitsu Limited

Tokyo, July 26, 2010

Fujitsu today announced that it has made changes to its business segments. The changes follow the July 9, 2010 announcement of the Fujitsu's medium-term management plan, which emphasizes the acceleration of the company's globalization and creation of new services businesses to generate new growth for the Group.

Starting with the company's first quarter financial results for fiscal 2010, which are scheduled to be announced on July 29, 2010, segment results will be disclosed based on the new segmentation, including comparison figures for prior years.

Main Changes in Segments

1. Services Business Outside Japan
As a cornerstone of its strategy for future growth, the Fujitsu Group will strengthen its worldwide support organization for ICT infrastructure and expand its services platforms, including datacenters and service desks. Up until now, services business outside Japan has been included in both the "Solutions / Systems Integration" and "Infrastructure Services" categories of the "Services" sub-segment. The company has changed its method of disclosure so that all revenues from the services business outside Japan will be aggregated in the "Infrastructure Services" category.

2. Car Audio and Navigation Systems, Mobile Communications Equipment, and Automotive Electronics
In the Human Centric Intelligent Society* that the Fujitsu Group is seeking to bring about, car audio and navigation equipment products will, along with PCs and mobile phones, play an important role as ubiquitous terminals and sensors in sensing information and knowledge generated from the patterns of movements of people and organizations. Up until now, these products have been included in the "Other" segment, but they will now be included in the "Ubiquitous Solutions" segment.

*1 Security solutions (including information systems infrastructure construction and network construction) that had been classified under the "Other" category will now be included in the "Infrastructure Services" category in the "Services" sub-segment, in accordance with the internal organization managing this business.
*2 The hard disk drive (HDD) business that was sold during fiscal 2009 had been included in the "Ubiquitous Product Solutions" segment, but to facilitate comparisons with the net sales and operating income or loss in prior fiscal years, it is included in the "Other / Elimination and Corporate" segment.

Changes in the Allocation Method of Operating Expenses

Fujitsu is making changes to its method for allocating operating expenses in order to improve the recoupment of expenses related to its sales activities as the company transforms into a comprehensive services provider supported by strong products and technologies, geared to meet the needs of the cloud computing era. As a result of this change, the amount of expenses allocated to the products business will decline and the amount of expenses allocated to the services business will increase.

Notes

Human Centric Intelligent Society

Refers to a society that enjoys the benefits of the value generated by information and communication technology (ICT) without requiring people to be conscious of the technological complexities involved.

Vast amounts of information generated by the behavior of people and organizations can be collected by high-speed, high-capacity wireless networking technologies as well as a variety of information terminals and sensing technologies that are permeating society, including corporate activities and the daily lives of people. This information can be used to make visible the movements of people and things that were, up until now, difficult to track. By analyzing this information using ICT infrastructure, such as cloud platforms and supercomputers, effective data can be generated that can create new value and business models. Through new discoveries on the issues facing society as a whole, including medicine, the global environment, and energy problems, as well as business activities, and through sophisticated human interfaces, Fujitsu is committed to bringing about a prosperous, human-centric society that delivers the benefits of ICT to as many people as possible.
