Komatsu files for termination of its reporting obligations under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934

Komatsu Ltd. (hereinafter the "Company") (President and CEO: Tetsuji Ohashi) hereby announces that the Company filed for termination of its reporting obligations today under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the "Exchange Act"), as below.

1. Filing for termination of its reporting obligations under the Exchange Act
The Company today filed a Form 15F with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") to terminate its reporting obligations under the Exchange Act. As a result of the filing of Form 15F, the Company's reporting obligations under the Exchange Act have been suspended, and are scheduled to be terminated on June 30, 2014. The schedule may be changed upon the SEC's objection or request for an extended review.

2. Future plans
While the Company's reporting obligations under the Exchange Act (including the obligation to file annual reports on Form 20-F) will be terminated, the Company will continue to prepare English consolidated financial statements in accordance with U.S. GAAP and disclose them on its website together with English translations of disclosures made pursuant to Japanese law and other important information, such as news releases, in order to ensure comparability with prior disclosures. The Company will continue to make efforts to maintain and enhance its disclosure to all of its stakeholders, including shareholders and investors.

The Company intends to maintain its American Depositary Receipt program in the United States, and therefore anticipates that its American Depositary Shares will continue to be traded in the United States on the over-the-counter market.
