Press Release (Aug 21,2013)Financial Support from the Nuclear Damage Liability Facilitation Fund

Today, we received 176.2 billion yen from the Nuclear Damage Liability Facilitation Fund (hereafter the Fund) based on the revised Special Business Plan (Comprehensive Special Business Plan) approved on June 25, 2013.

This financial support was given in response to our nineteenth request made in order to cover the compensation payouts to be completed by the end of September 2013, as the sum of the compensation received in accordance with the "Act on Contract for Indemnification of Nuclear Damage Compensation" (120 billion yen) and the financial support provided by the Fund (2.798 trillion yen) will not be sufficient for the total amount of payouts.

With the financial support received from the Fund, we will continue our utmost efforts in implementing the "compensation payouts with courtesy and compassion" in consideration of those afflicted by the nuclear damage.
