(Securities Code: 6985, First Section of the Tokyo Stock Exchange; "U-Shin"), has announced in its "Notice of Postponement of Announcement of Financial Results for the Three Months (1Q) Ended March 31, 2019 and the Establishment of an Investigation Committee" dated April 26, 2019 (as attached; the "U-Shin Press Release") that, with respect to U-SHIN (THAILAND) CO., LTD. (Rayong, Thailand), a consolidated subsidiary of U-Shin, it has been found through an internal investigation conducted at the time of the physical inventory at the end of the three months (1Q) ended March 31, 2019 that the inventory assets may have been overstated and the cost of sales may have been under-recorded in and after the fiscal year ending November 2012 (according to U-Shin, while U-Shin is carefully assessing the amount, U-Shin currently estimates the amount to be approximately one billion yen in total) and that, due to the time required for the investigation by the investigation committee whose members include third parties, additional auditing procedures by the accounting auditor, and the like, U-Shin will postpone the disclosure of the summary of financial results for the three months (1Q) ended March 31, 2019 (the "Event").
