[Tokyo Stock Exchange, Inc.]

TSE has additionally designated the stock of OLYMPUS CORPORATION, which is currently designated as a Security Under Supervision (Confirmation), as a Security Under Supervision (Examination) as below.

1. Issue Name OLYMPUS CORPORATION stock
(Code: 7733, Market Division: 1st Section)
2. Period of Designation of Securities Under Supervision (Examination) From Dec. 6, 2011 (Tue.) to the day when TSE determines whether the company has fallen under the delisting criteria
  Provision Enforcement Rules for Securities Listing Regulations, Rule 605, Paragraph 1, Item14
(due to falling under a case where TSE deems that there is substantial reason to deem some description as a false statement)
3. Reason OLYMPUS CORPORATION (hereinafter "the Company") has disclosed that it will submit amendment reports, etc. pertaining to past Securities Reports, etc. in light of receiving the investigation report from the third-party committee today. Said report describes the fact that it is necessary to take actions such as canceling impairment accounting or amortization of goodwill recognized in the process of the paid-in acquisition of the stocks of three domestic corporations, warrants paid in relation to the acquisition, etc. of Gyrus, and the acquisition of dividend preferred shares.
Based on this disclosure, TSE has determined that there is substantial reason to deem that the amendment to the content of Securities Reports, etc. has a significant impact. Since, depending on the result of future examination, such impact may be deemed significant and the stock may fall under the delisting criteria, TSE shall designate the stock of the Company as a Security Under Supervision (Examination) as an issue likely to fall under the delisting criteria.
In addition, the Company has disclosed on Nov. 10, 2011 (Thu.) that it is not expected to be able to submit a quarterly report by the statutory submission deadline. Based on this disclosure, TSE designated the stock of the Company as Securities Under Supervision (Confirmation) on the same date.
If the Company does not submit the quarterly report by Dec. 14, 2011 (Wed.), the stock of the Company shall be delisted.
