Announcement Concerning The Provision Of Information To The Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department

TOKYO, Feb. 8, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Universal Entertainment Corporation reported the receipt of suggestions from the Third-party Committee and its response to these suggestions on February 5, 2013 in a press release titled "Announcement Regarding the Suggestions of the Third-party Committee."

Although there is no direct relationship with these suggestions, the Third-party Committee's suggestions included the statement that a large volume of highly confidential information concerning three companies that have absolutely no relationship with our Company was found on the company PC used by Mr. "N" who is a former employee of our Company, Administration Division Manager, Japan Branch, Aruze USA.

This discovery was made during the investigation performed by the Third-party Committee.

This confidential information is information that is critical to the operations of these three companies. For example, the information includes customer information, detailed personal information about employees, payroll data, earnings projections and contracts that are the basis for business operations. This is all useful information that is managed as confidential personal and corporate information. Moreover, none of this information was available to the public.

There is a massive amount of this information (13,834 files equivalent to about 70,000 pages; volume of about 10 gigabytes) and it is in a format that makes the information extremely difficult to restore. Overall, there are many points about this matter that are unusual and suspicious.

Furthermore, it is clear that there is absolutely no doubt that this information was obtained and stored by Mr. "N" because:

(1) The information was found on the hard disk of the company PC used exclusively by Mr. "N" that required his ID to operate.

(2) All three companies where the information originated employed Mr. "N" at one time in the past.

We carefully examined the proper response to this matter in criminal investigations. Since this appears to be a criminal incident, we reached the conclusion that entrusting this matter to the police is the proper and most suitable course of action.
