Toshiba Corporation expresses sincere apologies to our shareholders, customers, business partners and all other stakeholders for any concern or inconvenience caused by the investigation into the appropriateness of its accounting.

We received the investigation report from the Independent Investigation Committee on July 20, 2015. The Company takes the content of the report by the Independent Investigation Committee very seriously. We reiterate our deep apology to our shareholders, investors and all other stakeholders.

Going forward, we will renew our commitment to our original management policy, which puts the highest priority on human life, safety and compliance, and reorganize our corporate governance structure and internal control system. We will also promptly examine measures to prevent recurrence and will implement them thoroughly.

Toshiba Corporation and its group as a whole will make our best effort to regain the trust of our stakeholders, and asks for your ongoing support.

A Message From Toshiba's then President and CEO of Toshiba America, Inc.

"Think Globally and Act Locally"
"Think globally and act locally" is a key aspect of my business credo. For Toshiba America this means that as a global company doing business in the U.S., we must comply fully with all legal requirements, work to understand cultural norms regarding issues such as corporate philanthropy and diversity in the workplace, as well as ensuring that our actions reflect important environmental concerns. I believe that every company is a part of society and therefore belongs to the community in which it operates. Companies exist to contribute to society.

"Committed to People, Committed to the Future"
The Toshiba Group's dedication to CSR is reflected in our corporate slogan "Committed to People, Committed to the Future." All Toshiba employees are encouraged to share our management vision and our core values, and the Toshiba Group Standards of Conduct and the UN Global Compact guide us in many aspects of our daily business. In addition, through the sharing of news about our CSR activities and programs with our stakeholders, we are helping to actively promote Toshiba CSR globally. I firmly believe that it is important to communicate honestly and openly, just as it is crucial to consider environmental sustainability, sincerity to our customers, and participation in community enrichment activities.
