Ongoing Discussion on the Projects of Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems, Ltd. in the Republic of South Africa

TOKYO, Feb 8, 2017 - (JCN Newswire) - Hitachi, Ltd. (TSE:6501) commented on the captioned matter as follows.

Hitachi has been discussing with Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd.

Hitachi hereby explains in this press release the status on the discussion.

On March 31, 2016, MHI requested Hitachi to pay ZAR 48,200 million (approximately 379.0 billion yen when ZAR 1 = 7.87 yen) as a portion of transfer price adjustment, etc. Hitachi replied to MHI on April 6, 2016 that the request lacked legal grounds under any agreement and thus Hitachi cannot accept it.
