Impact assessment of the heavy rain in Western Japan upon GIGAPHOTON’s Business

I would like to express my heartfelt sympathy to the people who had deceased and the affected people due to the heavy rain that occurred around July 6th in the western Japan.

I pray for restoration and revival of the area and people as soon as possible.

At this time, GIGAPHOTON do not have any damage or impact on employees’ lives, buildings, production facilities, stocked products, information systems etc. due to the disaster at our western Japan support bases (Kumamoto, Hiroshima, Yokkaichi).

Regarding our supply chain, we are currently investigating the damage situation of suppliers and their impact on our products, but so far there is no major problem.

We would like to give you a report as soon as we need to let you know in the future.

Sincerely Yours,

Kind regards,

Katsumi Uranaka,
