NSG: Response To European Commission Fine

1. Contents Nippon Sheet Glass Co., Ltd. ( “the Company” ) confirms that, as stated in the Commission's press release dated 28th November 2007, the European Commission has announced a Decision to levy a civil fine of Euro 140 million ( JPY 22.5 billion ) against Pilkington Group Limited ( “Pilkington” ), a subsidiary of the Company.

The fine follows an investigation, previously announced, into a number of glass manufacturers in the European building products glass sector, including Pilkington, relating to infringement of competition rules.

Pilkington also received, on 20th April 2007, a Statement of Objections with regard to the European automotive glass sector. The outcome of that case is still outstanding.
