Fujitsu Limited has concluded a contract with its consolidated subsidiary, Fujitsu Semiconductor Limited (Fujitsu Semiconductor), whereby Fujitsu Limited will absorb the latter's Microcontroller and Analog Business through a company split (Company Split 1). Fujitsu Limited has also concluded a contract with Nihon AM Semiconductor Limited (the New Company) which is newly established by Fujitsu Semiconductor. In this second contract, Fujitsu Limited will transfer this business, also through a company split (Company Split 2), to the New Company.
Company Split 1 and Company Split 2, collectively referred to as "the Company Splits," fall within the scope of consolidated subsidiaries established through a simple absorption-type separation. For this reason certain details are not included in this disclosure.
The Company Splits are undertaken to realize the smooth transfer of Fujitsu Semiconductor's Microcontroller and Analog Business to the U.S.-based Spansion LLC and affiliates, which Fujitsu Limited announced on April 30, 2013.
After the business is transferred from Fujitsu Limited to the New Company, Fujitsu Semiconductor will transfer all shares in the New Company to Nihon Spansion Limited.
May 23, 2013: Resolution by Board of Directors approving the Company Splits
August 1, 2013 (scheduled): Scheduled date of the Company Splits (effective date)
The Company Splits meet the standards of simple absorption-type separations and therefore do not require the approval of a General Meeting of Shareholders.
The Company Splits will not involve an exchange of consideration.
Fujitsu Limited's capital will not change in as a result of the Company Splits.
Fujitsu Limited will assume a portion of the rights and obligations of Fujitsu Semiconductor's Microcontroller and Analog Business. These same rights and obligations, as well as the employment contracts held by the Microcontroller and Analog Business, will be transferred to the New Company.
As referenced in 4 (3) below, compared to the scale of Fujitsu Limited and Fujitsu Semiconductor, the scale of the assets and liabilities transferred and assumed as a result of the Company Splits is relatively small, and the amount of assets exceeds the amount of liabilities. For these reasons there will be no impact on the ability of Fujitsu Limited, Fujitsu Semiconductor, or the New Company to fulfill their obligations.

Furthermore, the impact of the Microcontroller and Analog Business transfer to Spansion LLC and affiliates, including the transfer of shares in the New Company to Nihon Spansion Limited, has been factored into Fujitsu Limited's consolidated financial projections for fiscal 2013 that were released on April 30, 2013.
