Statement by Atsushi Saito with regard to TSE System Failure
We sincerely appreciate your support.
We deeply apologize to our market users, particularly investors for any inconvenience which may have been caused due to the failure of our information distribution system on February 2nd, 2012.
This failure was caused by a hardware failure. By replacing the failed hardware, we have already secured a situation where no further problems in stock trading will occur. From tomorrow stock trading will be conducted as usual.
We will identify the cause as soon as possible and prepare the necessary preventive measures. We will also make utmost efforts to not cause inconvenience to market users in the future. Therefore, we sincerely look forward to your continued support of our market operations.
