Ajinomoto Co. to Begin Production and Sale of Instant Noodles Through Joint Venture with Toyo Suisan in India, Cancels its Joint Venture Agreement in Nigeria

Ajinomoto Co., Inc. is scheduled to begin production and sale of instant noodles in November 2016 at ARUCHAN AJINOMOTO INDIA PRIVATE LIMITED, a joint venture company it established with Toyo Suisan Kaisha Ltd. ("Toyo Suisan") in December 2014. On the other hand Ajinomoto Co. canceled the joint venture agreement for instant noodles in Nigeria it entered into in March 2014. Ajinomoto Co. and Toyo Suisan have been working for rapid market entry with the establishment of MARUCHAN AJINOMOTO INDIA PRIVATE LIMITED as a joint venture. By combining Ajinomoto Co.'s marketing and sales capabilities with Toyo Suisan's strengths in development and production, the companies have developed previously unavailable new instant noodle flavors and plan to produce and sell such noodles targeting young consumers from November 2016. With regard to MARUCHAN AJINOMOTO NIGERIA LIMITED, an instant noodle joint venture between Ajinomoto Co. and Toyo Suisan in Nigeria, based on the unclear outlook due to the substantial change in the business environment caused by the drop in the price of crude oil, the two companies have decided to cancel their joint venture agreement and to conduct dissolution and liquidation procedures. The effect of this matter on Ajinomoto Co.'s consolidated results is immaterial.

Ajinomoto Co., Inc. to Launch Stemfit Basic02 for Basic Research for the Global Market

Ajinomoto Co., Inc. will begin sales of StemFit Basic02, a high-performance iPS/ES cell culture medium for basic research, to research institutions in the United States. This will be the first stage of a global market rollout of Ajinomoto Co.'s StemFit series of iPS/ES cell culture media, which has established a track record in Japan, as the company continues to contribute to the rapid realization of regenerative medicine around the world. Ajinomoto Co. developed StemFitAK03 jointly with the Center for iPS Cell Research and Application at Kyoto University in 2014 and has been providing it to related facilities in Japan as a cell culture medium for clinical research into regenerative medicine. In 2015, Ajinomoto Co. launched StemFit AK02N, a cell culture medium for basic research with a similar composition and comparable performance to that of StemFit AK03. Currently, Ajinomoto Co. is rolling out the StemFit series in Japan with a lineup of two varieties, one for basic research and the other for clinical research. The StemFit series has the higher level of performance as a culture medium for propagation of iPS/ES cells and has earned a positive evaluation in Japan for achieving higher cost performance than the products of other companies in terms of replacement frequency, proliferation rate and stability. Now, Ajinomoto Co. will launch StemFit Basic02, which was developed for the global market based on StemFit AK02N cell culture medium for basic research, for research institutions in the United States, the global market leader. For sales, Ajinomoto Co. has formed a tie-up with ReproCELL, Inc., which supports regenerative medicine research globally, to provide the product broadly to regenerative medicine research institutions in the United States. Ajinomoto Co. plans to promote the development of cell culture media for clinical research for the global market, and to roll out the StemFit series in various countries in Europe and Asia.
