Settlement with the UK Prudential Regulation Authority
The Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ, Ltd. (“BTMU”) hereby announced that it has reached a settlement with the UK Prudential Regulation Authority (“PRA”), pursuant to which it will make a payment of GBP17,850,000.

BTMU has cooperated fully and openly with the PRA throughout the investigation. BTMU expresses its regret for these historic breaches. Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group, Inc. has taken decisive action to improve its information controls and intra-group communication on regulatory matters. BTMU is committed to conducting business with the highest levels of integrity and regulatory compliance and to continuing to improve their policies and procedures.
