Current Status of JSR's Business Operations (As of April 21st)

IR  04/21/2011
Below is a report of the current status of JSR's business operations, as of April 21st (Thu), as a result of the Great East Japan Earthquake.

1. Chiba Plant (located in Ichihara City, Chiba)
The manufacturing facilities at the Chiba Plant are under normal operations as previously reported.
The production of performance chemicals is back to normal conditions on April 20th. This process has been slowed down due to supply limitations of raw materials.

2. Kashima Plant (located in Kamisu City, Ibaraki)
The situation at the Kashima Plant remains the same as previously reported.

The following is what we previously reported:
( Supplies of utilities, such as steam, were resumed operation and we started partial production by utilizing raw materials in our inventory.
In regards to EP rubber (ethylene propylene rubber), which had a tight demand and supply balance even before the earthquake happened, there was an announcement from the main raw material supplier that the production will be resumed around May 20. We are under preparations and expect to start manufacturing once we secure raw materials.)
