Fujitsu Honored by SBC Communications as Outstanding Supplier

Richardson, TX,
May 3, 2005

Commitment to excellence has earned Fujitsu recognition as an outstanding supplier this past year to SBC Communications Inc. (NYSE: SBC), one of the world’s leading data, voice and Internet services providers.

“We are proud of our longstanding tradition of going beyond the call for our customers,” said Maureen Merkle, president of SBC Procurement. “We succeed at that because strategic supply chain partners like Fujitsu consistently go beyond the call for us.”

Fujitsu was one of a select group of 47 suppliers recognized for their work in helping the SBC companies deliver outstanding service to its customers during the past year. Fujitsu was recognized for its contributions in the Cost Management & Creative Solutions category.

“As a strategic supplier to SBC for nearly two decades, we are extremely proud to be honored by SBC as one of their top suppliers,” said George Chase, group president and chief operating officer of Fujitsu Network Communications. “As one of only a handful of equipment providers who manufacture the majority of its products in-house, Fujitsu can implement ongoing component, product and process improvements throughout our supply chain to reduce network deployment costs for our customers. The cost management award is an affirmation of our achievements in world-class manufacturing.”

As part of its annual supplier recognition program, SBC took out a half-page ad in the April 22 edition of the Wall Street Journal to publicly thank the selected companies.
