Toray Industries Inc. announced the latest situation regarding the impact of the large-scale floods in Thailand on Toray Group's operations, the details of which are described below.

Damage Status
Ayutthaya Plant of Thai Toray Synthetics Co., Ltd. (TTS), which halted operations on the evening of October 6, began its restoration works on November 28 and is expected to restart from the end of March 2012.

TTS's Bangkok Plant, which also halted operations on October 26 as areas near the plant got inundated (no flooding in the plant), began its restoration works on November 17 and has resumed production on December 1.

The plants of Thai Toray Textile Mills (TTTM) and TTS in Nakhon Pathom, wihch also suspended their operations for a similar reason by November 1 (partially flooded), have resumed production at TTTM on November 21 and TTS on December 4.

There has been no material or personnel damage due to the floods at Toray group companies or plants other than at Ayutthaya Plant and Nakhon Pathom Plant of TTS.

All the employees on dispatch from Toray to Thailand who had temporarily returned to Japan are back in Thailand by November 17.

Their families are also in the process of returning.

Impact on Fiber Product (Yarns) Supply
Toray has been earnestly responding to the impact on fiber product (yarn) supply following the closedown of the above plants by increasing production at group companies and replacing the products with other types of products. At the same time, the company expects only a minimal impact on supply in the Japanese market, partly because of the small volume of yarn exports from TTS to the Japanese market.

Specifically, Toray is boosting production at its four domestic plants (Mishima, Ishikawa, Aichi and Okazaki Plants) to the maximum possible extent, while cooperating with its overseas subsidiaries and affiliates in Indonesia, Republic of Korea and China, in an effort to maintain stable supply of the particular products by leveraging the Toray Group's global production structure.

The Group is also taking necessary measures with respect to other products depending on the impact.

Toray Group fuses nanotechnology into its operations, using organic synthetic chemistry, polymer chemistry and biotechnology as its core technologies. In addition to the Foundation Businesses of fibers & textiles and plastics & chemicals, Toray likewise promotes the global development of IT-related products, carbon fiber composite materials, pharmaceuticals and medical products, environment & engineering including water treatment and progress in other pivotal business fields.
