(Due to improvements being deemed highly necessary in cases where TSE has recognized a violation of the matters to be observed when conducting disclosure)
On Sep. 11, 2012 (Tue.), the Company disclosed inspection results of an external investigation committee on inappropriate accounting by the Company's overseas consolidated subsidiary as well as an overview of amendments to account settlement contents in past fiscal years based on such investigation results. In addition, the Company disclosed today that it plans to correct earnings reports, etc. in past fiscal years.
In the disclosed documents, it was discovered that (i) the former president of said subsidiary had taken a key role in improper accounting practices, such as overstating accounts receivable and failing to record liabilities, and (ii) the Company had disclosed the content of account settlement contents requiring material amendments from the first quarter of the fiscal year ended March 2008 to the fiscal year ended March 2012.
It was deemed that this case was solely conducted by the subsidiary responsible for sales in a certain country with regard to the printer business, a business unit of the Company group. Although the Company was not recognized to have given instructions and covered up the case, it was deemed that (i) the subsidiary failed to develop a system to monitor and check business execution by the former president and (ii) there was a problem in the Company's subsidiary management system and internal control.
This case is deemed to (i) be in violation of matters to be observed related to timely disclosure, (ii) have considerable influence on investment decisions and (iii) require public announcement. Thus, TSE shall implement public announcement measures.
Moreover, this is a case of improper disclosure caused by deficiencies in the timely disclosure system of the Company, and improvement of the Company's timely disclosure system has been deemed highly necessary. As such, TSE requires submission of a report containing the background and improvement measures.
