TOKYO -- February 3, 2013

Mitsubishi Electric Corporation (TOKYO:6503) announced today that in its
financial results for the third quarter of the current fiscal year ending
March 31, 2013, it has recorded 75.7 billion yen as non-operating expenses on
a consolidated basis and 65.0 billion yen as extraordinary losses on a
non-consolidated basis for refunds of overcharged expenses, related penalties
and interest in electronics systems business contracts with four public

While the amounts reflect minor variances from figures of 77.3 billion yen
(consolidated) and 65.5 billion yen (non-consolidated) announced on December
21, 2012, the changes do not affect the company's financial forecast for this
fiscal year.

In contracts with the Ministry of Defense (MOD), the Cabinet Satellite
Intelligence Center (CSICE), the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) and
the National Institute of Information and Communications Technology (NICT),
Mitsubishi Electric overcharged expenses. Similar practices have been
identified in relation to separate contracts between four affiliated companies
and MOD.

The expenses recorded in the third quarter results include 15.4 billion yen
already reimbursed to CSICE, JAXA and NICT, as announced on January 18, 2013.
For the recorded expenses of 75.7 billion yen and 65.0 billion yen, the
expected refund payments to MOD are partially based on estimates because the
final binding ruling on the amount has not been issued. The actual amount is
subject to change depending on MOD's final ruling.
