Showa Denko Transfers Its Shares in Indonesia Chemical Alumina

TOKYO, May 29, 2018 - (JCN Newswire) - Showa Denko ("SDK"; TSE:4004) has reached a basic agreement with PT ANTAM Tbk (ANTAM) on the transfer of its shares in PT. INDONESIA CHEMICAL ALUMINA (ICA) to ANTAM. SDK resolved at its Board of Directors meeting earlier today to sell its entire shareholding in ICA to ANTAM. Currently, SDK applies equity method to ICA, while ANTAM is the parent company of ICA and the majority shareholder. SDK announced on July 24, 2017 that it had entered negotiations with ANTAM for the sale of its entire stake in ICA.

3. Impact on SDK's 2018 financial results
The ICA plant has temporarily stopped operation.
