Response to the Tohoku Kanto Earthquake

Hitachi High-Technologies Corporation (TOKYO:8036, Hitachi High-Tech) would like to express our deepest sympathies to those affected by the earthquake that occurred in the Tohoku region on March 11th. Many of our offices in Ibaraki Prefecture have suffered structural damage or have damaged production facilities. We are currently making it our top priority to confirm the safety of our employees and learn the full extent of the damage suffered by our offices in the area. Presently, there have been no reports of serious injury to any employees of the Hitachi High-Tech Group or their families.  In response to the earthquake on March 11th, Hitachi High-Tech set up a headquarters led by Executive Vice President and CRO Masao Hisada to gather information about Group production facilities and offices, their employees and families, and to coordinate the company’s activities.  At the present time, it is impossible to estimate the size of any losses or the impact the earthquake will have on Hitachi High-Tech’s performance. The impact, however, is expected to be large and Hitachi High-Tech will disclose such information as quickly as possible.
