Notice Regarding Impact of Tohoku Earthquake

Fujitsu Limited

Tokyo, April 28, 2011

The eastern Japan earthquake of March 11, 2011 impacted the Fujitsu Group as follows.

1. Damage

Certain buildings and production equipment at plants where the Fujitsu Group manufactures semiconductors, x86 servers, desktop PCs, network products, and mobile phones sustained damage. In addition, plant operations were impacted due to a halt to lifeline systems such as electricity, water, and gas.

(1) Main Disaster-Affected Manufacturing Plants

Semiconductors : Fujitsu Semiconductor Limited (FSL); five plants including Iwate Plant in Iwate Prefecture
X86 servers / desktop PCs : Fujitsu Isotec Limited (FIT); Date Plant (main) in Fukushima Prefecture
Power supply units : Fujitsu Telecom Networks Limited (FTN); Furudono Plant in Fukushima Prefecture
Network products / mobile phones / other : Fujitsu Limited: Nasu and Oyama plants in Tochigi Prefecture

2. Effect on Consolidated Results

(1) Fiscal year ended March 31, 2011

An extraordinary loss of 11.6 billion yen has been posted to cover costs to restore damaged assets, as well as fixed costs during the plants' non-operational period and loss on disposal of inventories. Operating income decreased by approximately 13 billion yen, primarily due to the impact of decreased sales on account of delays to product delivery and shipments.

(2) Fiscal year ending March 31, 2012

As of April 20, 2011, all of the above facilities had recovered100% production capacity. However, the effect on consolidated results in the fiscal year ending March 31, 2012 is unknown at this time. This is due to concerns over the procurement of raw materials and components, as well as the increasing uncertainty on domestic ICT investments.
