Regarding the Postponement of the Integration of NEC CASIO Mobile Communications and Casio Hitachi Mobile Communications


*** For immediate use April 20, 2010

Tokyo, April 20, 2010 - NEC Corporation (NEC; TSE: 6701), Casio Computer Co., Ltd. (Casio; TSE: 6952), and Hitachi, Ltd. (Hitachi; TSE: 6501/NYSE: HIT) announced today the postponement of the integration of NEC CASIO Mobile Communications, Ltd. (NEC CASIO Mobile Communications, *1) and Casio Hitachi Mobile Communications Co., Ltd. (CHMC, *2) until June 1, 2010.

Since the review by competition authorities in certain countries is still taking place, in consideration of the time required to prepare for company integration, it has been judged that May 1 is a difficult target date for launching the integration.

The corporate spin-off between NEC and NEC CASIO Mobile Communications remains scheduled to take place on May 1.
