Six months have passed since the occurrence of the Tohoku-Chihou-Taiheiyo-
Oki Earthquake. We would again like to extend our sincerest condolences to
those who have lost their lives, and our deepest sympathy to those who
have suffered from this earthquake. 
Furthermore, we deeply apologize to the people who live around the
Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station, people of the Fukushima
Prefecture and all the people in Japan, for the great inconvenience and
anxiety that the accident of the Power Station has caused.

On 17th April this year, we released the "Roadmap towards Restoration from
the Accident at Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station". In this roadmap,
we set the first three months as "step one", whose goal was to secure the
"steady decline of radiation dose" which we believe have almost fully
accomplished by July, as scheduled.
At present we are working on "step two", whose aim is to "Control the
Release of radioactive materials and keep radiation dose significantly
low". We will continue to make every effort so that the people who live
around the power plant can safely return to their homes as soon as

At the same time, TEPCO group will prepare for the prompt and fair payment
of the official financial compensation that will start from October, and
will make every effort to settle the situation, in close cooperation with
the national and regional government and with the help of related parties.
