TOKYO -- April 26, 2013

Toshiba Corporation (TOKYO:6502) today announced that its Singapore-based
subsidiary, Toshiba Asia Pacific Pte.,Ltd. has established a branch office in
Yangon in the Republic of the Union of Myanmar. The Yangon Branch Office will
start operation in May.

The Myanmar economy is expected to grow as it promotes economic deregulation
and attracts inward direct investment. Ensuring sustained growth will require
broad investments in social infrastructure, including power generation and
distribution, and the Yangon Branch Office will investigate the market and
promote business in this and other areas, such as consumer products.

Toshiba has promoted its home appliance business in Myanmar through
distributors in Singapore since the 1980s, and supplied also hydroelectric
equipment for the Sedawgyi hydroelectric power plant in 1985. Through the new
office, Toshiba will establish a stronger presence in the country and support
Myanmar's economic development.
