Price Increase for SUMIKASUPER LCP

We appreciate our long-term relationship with you and thank you again for your continued purchase of SUMIKASUPER LCPs.
We have announced a price increase of JPY80/kg (USD0.73/kg) for all SUMIKASUPER LCPs, effective from shipments of July 1, 2007.
We have been forced to absorb several price increases that impact the cost of SUMIKASUPER LCPs. Even with numerous increases, we have done our best to keep the pricing of SUMIKASUPER LCPs consistent. However, we can no longer absorb the cost increases.
We appreciate your understanding and cooperation.
