Olympus Corporation (“Olympus”) and Sony Corporation (“Sony”) today updated
the status of the medical business venture company (the “medical business
venture”) that has been the subject of discussions between the two parties,
and which will be established in accordance with the business alliance
agreement executed on September 28, 2012.

Olympus and Sony announced in the press release “Update on the Status for
Establishment of Medical Business Venture Company between Olympus and Sony”
dated December 21, 2012 that the companies aimed to establish the medical
business venture by April 1, 2013, subject to customary closing conditions,
including the receipt of any necessary regulatory approvals. The examination
