Notice Regarding Operation Recovery from Impact of Tohoku Earthquake

Yokohama, Japan, April 20, 2011- As of today, all affected production plants of Fujitsu Semiconductor Limited based in the Tohoku region have fully resumed operations (100% operational capacity with wafer input base).

A portion of the semiconductor manufacturing facilities sustained damages as a result of the Tohoku earthquake which hit Japan on March 11, 2011, and from the aftershocks which followed on April 7 and 11. With operations resuming at the Iwate plant (Isawa-gun, Kanegasaki-cho, Iwate Prefecture) of Fujitsu Semiconductor as of April 18, and Fujitsu Semiconductor Technology Limited (Aizu-Wakamatsu-shi, Fukushima Prefecture) as of April 20, all affected plants have returned to full production.

Full operations resumed earlier than initially expected with the dedicated support and cooperation of our equipment suppliers and material manufacturers, as well as the concerted restoration efforts of all employees of the Fujitsu Semiconductor Group.

Fujitsu Semiconductor extends its sincere apologies to all customers and other related parties for any inconvenience that has been caused. Although we expect difficult situations in the future including power stability, Fujitsu Semiconductor will continue to make its utmost effort to extend its countermeasures including the transfer of production to alternative plants within the Fujitsu Semiconductor Group.

The Fujitsu Semiconductor Group will continue production during the Golden Week consecutive holiday period in Japan from the end of April through to the first week of May, at all of its manufacturing facilities including the Mie plant of Fujitsu Semiconductor, as well as the Kyushu plant of Fujitsu Integrated Microtechnology Limited.
