As for its Hiratsuka Plant in Hiratsuka-shi, Kanagawa Prefecture, a gradual return to production operations is underway and normal operations will be restored by end of this week. Based on information available, its calculated effect on the financial period ending in March 2011 is expected to be 5.5 billion yen.
