OYAMA, Japan -- April 5, 2013

Gigaphoton, Inc., a major lithography light source manufacturer, announced
today that as of April 1, 2013, it has delegated Komatsu (China) Ltd.
("Komatsu (China)") to take the place of Scientech Corp. Shanghai
("Scientech") as its new service representative in China, and has commenced
business operations under the former. Through Komatsu (China), Gigaphoton will
aggressively promote new business opportunities to find potential customers in
China by teaming up with lithography system manufacturers as well as further
reinforce its local technical support system centered on its service support
bases in China for existing Chinese customers of Gigaphoton excimer lasers for
semiconductor lithography systems.

Gigaphoton elected to transfer its service support framework to Komatsu
(China), a regional supervisory company under Gigaphoton's parent company
Komatsu Ltd. Moreover, in order to ensure the seamless transfer of the
high-quality service support provided to clientele up until now, on the
occasion of its new delegation as Gigaphoton's service representative, Komatsu
(China) has established an Optical Instruments Business Department on April 1
with the full support of Scientech, and has accepted the transfer of excimer
laser service personnel from Scientech.

Through its close network with Komatsu (China), Gigaphoton will continue to
