Olympus Corporation Announces Notice Concerning Settlements of Lawsuits for Damages

Olympus Corporation announced that it reached out-of-court settlements, as detailed below, with regard to the civil actions filed by 92 entities in total including foreign institutional investors and pension funds in the Tokyo District Court for ¥36,085,384,346 in damages, as announced in the timely disclosures dated November 13, 2012 ‘Notice Concerning the Filing of Lawsuit against Olympus Corporation’ and dated July 16, 2013 ‘Notice Concerning the Filing of Lawsuit against Olympus Corporation.’ One was filed on June 28, 2012 against the Company to seek compensation for aggregate damages of ¥19,253,038,393 pursuant to Articles 709 and 715 of the Civil Code, Article 350 of the Companies Act and Article 21-2.1 of the Financial Instruments and Exchange Act by 49 entities in total including foreign institutional investors and pension funds, alleging the false statements made by the company in the Annual Securities Reports, Semi- Annual Reports and Quarterly Reports for the fiscal year 2000 through the first quarter of the fiscal year 2011 and the Internal Control Reports for the fiscal years 2008 through 2010 for the purpose of deferring record of losses, as announced in the timely disclosure dated November 8, 2011 ‘Notice Concerning Past Activities Regarding Deferral in Posting of Losses.’ The other was filed on June 27, 2013 against the Company to seek compensation for aggregate damages of ¥16,832,345,953 pursuant to Articles 709 and 715 of the Civil Code, Article 350 of the Companies Act and Article 21-2.1 of the Financial Instruments and Exchange Act by 43 entities in total including foreign institutional investors and pension funds. Note that ¥6 billion of the above ¥17 billion is for the settlement money for the lawsuit, as announced in the timely disclosure dated November 18, 2013 ‘Notice Concerning Settlement of Lawsuit,’ and therefore, the lawsuits subject to the ¥17 billion provisions for losses on lawsuits are now all settled.

Olympus Corporation Launches Three New Models in DSX Series of Digital Microscopes

Olympus Corporation announced that its scientific solutions business has launched three new models in its DSX series of digital microscopes, the DSX510, DSX510i, and DSX110. Industrial microscopes are used to make observations and measurements of a wide variety of samples such as electronic components and metallic materials. The DSX Series of digital microscopes attain the high reliability of optical technology built up by Olympus over many years with the simple and intuitive operability made possible by digital technology. First released as a new series of industrial microscopes in 2012, they have since acquired a strong reputation. They enable users to perform a workflow from placing a sample on the stage and then making observations and measurements, to generating reports without the need for profound knowledge or complex operations. In the first model change in three years, the three new models build on the existing functions and deliver further enhancements to the reliability and ease-of-use that are key features of the series. This helps achieve more efficient and accurate observation and measurement. The automatic image stitching function works by specifying the number of images or the region on images in order to capture large (wide-angle) observation images. The function has been upgraded to stitch the high-definition images more smoothly. The maximum number of images that can be stitched has also been increased to 1,000 (ten times previous models) to enable even larger images. The function is useful for improving the productivity of inspection applications that cover a wide area such as the visual inspection of PCB assembly. The extended focal imaging and 3D imaging functions work by automatically combining multiple images taken while shifting the focal point in the Z (height) direction along the height contours of the sample. The new models feature improvements to the algorithm that speed up image capture and make observation more comfortable. 2D images with the entire sample area in focus (extended focal imaging) and 3D images that enable the sample to be viewed from any angle can be generated with a single click, even for samples with large variations in height. Olympus uses two figures for its measurement accuracy guarantee: an "accuracy" figure representing measurement accuracy itself, and a "repeatability" figure that indicates the low level of variation over multiple measurements. This double guarantee provides measurements with a high level of confidence. Now, in addition to the existing double guarantee for the planar dimensions (X and Y), the new DSX510 also comes with a repeatability guarantee for the height dimension (Z) to enable its use with even greater confidence. All three models also feature a new roughness measurement function. This provides a simple way to check the surface roughness of samples, such as the degree of gloss finish on the surfaces of machined parts.
