Responses to the Coronavirus Outbreak (Fourth Report)

Nippon Paint Holdings Co., Ltd. (Head office: Kita-ku, Osaka; Chairman, President and CEO: Masaaki Tanaka, “NPHD”) has established a Coronavirus Emergency Headquarters in order to confirm the health of employees worldwide, ensure workplace safety, establish Business Continuity Plans and take other actions. The safety of employees is the highest priority of NPHD as the coronavirus continues to spread worldwide. This fourth report on responses covers the following measures.

1. Resumption of operations at factories in China Two factories in Hubei province that had suspended operations have restarted production on March 8 following the receipt of government approval. In other locations, primarily Wuhan, some employees are still working at home. However, there are no longer any factories in China that have suspended operations.

2. No trips to other countries by employees assigned to locations other than their home countries
An increasing number of countries have stopped issuing visas, temporarily halted visa exemptions, or started mandatory quarantines for people arriving from other countries. For the safety of NPHD personnel, as of March 12, NPHD has temporarily stopped all travel to a different country by employees who are assigned to locations other than their home countries.

In addition, due to the extension of the Japanese government’s request to postpone various events, NPHD will continue to implement the following measures that were announced in “Responses to the Coronavirus Outbreak (Third Report)” on February 28, 2020.

- Staggered working hours and abolishment of core time (since February 21)

- Strongly encourage employees in Japan to use telework and paid leave (since February 28)
