Report of Independent Auditors
The Trustee
Elpida Memory, Inc.
We have audited the accompanying consolidated financial statements of Elpida Memory, Inc. and subsidiaries, which comprise the consolidated balance sheets as of February 28, 2013 and March 31, 2012, and the related consolidated statements of operations, comprehensive income, stockholder’s equity, redeemable noncontrolling interest and redeemable preferred stock, and cash flows for the eleven months ended February 28, 2013 and the year ended March 31, 2012, and the related notes to the consolidated financial statements.
Trustee’s Responsibility for the Financial Statements
Trustee is responsible for the preparation and fair presentation of these financial statements in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles; this includes the design, implementation, and maintenance of internal control relevant to the preparation and fair presentation of financial statements that are free of material misstatement, whether due to fraud or error.
Auditor’s Responsibility
Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audits. We conducted our audits in accordance with auditing standards generally accepted in the United States. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement.
An audit involves performing procedures to obtain audit evidence about the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. The procedures selected depend on the auditor’s judgment, including the assessment of the risks of material misstatement of the financial statements, whether due to fraud or error. In making those risk assessments, the auditor considers internal control relevant to the entity’s preparation and fair presentation of the financial statements in order to design audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the entity’s internal control. Accordingly, we express no such opinion. An audit also includes evaluating the appropriateness of accounting policies used and the reasonableness of significant accounting estimates made by trustee, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the financial statements.
We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our audit opinion.
Opinion
In our opinion, the financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the consolidated financial position of Elpida Memory, Inc. and subsidiaries at February 28, 2013 and March 31, 2012, and the consolidated results of their operations and their cash flows for the eleven months ended February 28, 2013 and the year ended March 31, 2012, in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles.

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
February 28, 2013 and March 31 2012
(Yen in millions, except share data)


(1)
Description of Business, Basis of Presentation and Other Relevant Information
(a)
Description of Business and Basis of Presentation
Elpida Memory, Inc. (“Elpida”) was established in December 1999 as a joint venture owned 50% each by NEC Corporation and Hitachi, Ltd. under the Commercial Code of Japan. Its initial public offering was completed on November 15, 2004, in the First Section of the Tokyo Stock Exchange (the “TSE”).
Elpida and its subsidiaries (hereinafter referred to collectively as the “Company”) develop, design, manufacture and sell dynamic random access memory semiconductors (“DRAMs”). The Company’s product portfolio consists of two categories, premier DRAMs (for digital consumer electronics and mobile devices) and computing DRAMs (for servers and personal computers). The Company provides a wide variety of products to leading international electronics companies in Asia, North America and Europe. The Company has manufacturing facilities in Hiroshima (wafer processing) and Akita (packaging and testing). Further, it has sales and marketing support offices in Japan, North America, Europe, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Singapore. In addition to its own manufacturing facilities, Elpida utilizes the foundry services of Rexchip Electronic Corporation (“Rexchip”) and Powerchip Technology Corporation (“PTC”) for the production of DRAMs for the computing market. Rexchip is Elpida’s consolidated subsidiary and PTC owns a 24.06% interest in Rexchip as a noncontrolling interest holder at February 28, 2013.
Elpida and its Japanese subsidiaries maintain their records and prepare their consolidated financial statements in conformity with Japan generally accepted accounting principles, which are different in certain respects as to application and disclosure requirements of generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America. The accounts of non-Japanese subsidiaries are based on their accounting records maintained in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles prevailing in the respective countries of domicile. Certain adjustments and reclassifications have been incorporated in the accompanying consolidated financial statements to conform to U.S generally accepted accounting principles. These adjustments include, but are not limited to, those related to the scope of consolidation and the accounting for business combinations, income taxes, goodwill and intangible assets, inventories, leases, stock-based compensation, revenue recognition, post-retirement benefits, depreciation and amortization, derivative instruments, accruals for certain expenses, and liabilities subject to compromise. These adjustments and reclassifications were not recorded in the statutory books of account.
(b)
Reorganization Proceedings
On February 27, 2012 (the “Petition Date”), Elpida and Akita Elpida Memory, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Elpida, (collectively, the “Debtors”) filed voluntary petitions in the Tokyo District Court (the “Court”) to commence corporate reorganization proceedings under the Corporate Reorganization Act ( Kaisha Kosei Ho ) of Japan (the “Reorganization Act”).
On March 23, 2012, the Court made the order to commence such proceedings and appointed the incumbent President & CEO and an attorney-at-law as trustees. The Debtors are continuing to operate their business as a “debtors-in-possession” under the jurisdiction of the Court and in accordance with the applicable provisions of the Reorganization Act and the orders of the Court. The Court also appointed and ordered an examiner to examine whether a reorganization plan and the related procedures are performed fairly.

ELPIDA MEMORY, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES
(DEBTORS-IN-POSSESSION)
NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (continued)


On March 28, 2012, shares of Elpida were delisted from the TSE.
On July 2, 2012, Micron Technology, Inc. (“Micron”, a company established in the United States of America) and Elpida signed a definitive sponsor agreement whereby Micron would acquire and support Elpida.
On August 21, 2012, Elpida submitted the proposed reorganization plan (the "Plan") to the Court. The Plan prepared by the trustees was based on the assumption that Elpida would receive financial support from Micron in accordance with the sponsorship agreement entered on July 2, 2012 and Elpida would pay the reorganization claims, and maintain and reorganize its business with such support.
On October 31, 2012, the Court made an order to refer the Plan submitted by Elpida to a resolution.
The recognition of the order to approve the Plan under Chapter 15 of the Federal Bankruptcy Code of the United States Bankruptcy Court was the remaining condition to be fulfilled precedent to closing the reorganization under the sponsor agreement with Micron.
On February 28, 2013, the Plan was agreed by the statutorily required majority of creditors and approved by the Court. Under the Plan, Elpida settled all of its outstanding stock options without compensation (excluding treasury shares held by Elpida) and, on the same day, all such stock options were canceled.
On May 27, 2013, Elpida acquired all of its issued and outstanding shares (common shares, Type 1 Preferred Shares and Type 2 Preferred Shares) without compensation (excluding treasury shares held by Elpida) and, on the same day, all such shares which Elpida held were extinguished. As a result, Elpida transferred the balance of its common stock to additional paid-in capital.
Additionally, on May 27, 2013, Elpida issued common shares with the amount of the subscription price per share of 1 Japanese yen and the number of shares of 1 share which was allotted to the trustee. As a result, Elpida increased its common stock by 1 Japanese yen.
Elpida’s subsidiaries that are not included in the Plan continue to operate without the supervision of the Court and are not part of the bankruptcy proceedings.
On June 26, 2013, Elpida obtained the recognition of the order by the United States Bankruptcy Court.
On July 31, 2013, Micron made a cash payment of ¥60,000 to Elpida, in exchange for 100% ownership of Elpida’s equity. As of this date, all material unsatisfied conditions were resolved and the Company was required to apply the fresh start accounting provisions of Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) Accounting Standard Codification (“ASC”) 852, Reorganizations . Fresh start accounting requires an allocation of the reorganization value to the reorganized entity’s assets and liabilities pursuant to ASC 805, Business Combinations . The Company anticipates completing the fair value measurements and the allocation of the reorganization value in fiscal year ending August 31, 2014. During August 2013, the Company began the process of measuring and allocating the reorganization value to the assets and liabilities of the Debtors in accordance with ASC 820, Fair Value Measurement . Consequently, the financial statements of the reorganized Company will change materially in amounts and classifications due to the implementation of the fresh start accounting. Since the issuance date of these financial statements, the Company is evaluating the impact of the change on the consolidated financial statements.

(c)
Tokyo Stock Exchange Delisting Determination
On February 28, 2012, Elpida’s 2nd and 3rd 130% Call Option Attached Unsecured Convertible Bonds with Stock Acquisition Rights were delisted from the TSE in accordance with Rule 921 of the Securities Listing Regulations due to the filing of the petition for the commencement of reorganization proceedings, which led to Elpida’s forfeiture of the benefit of time.
On March 28, 2012, Elpida’s common stock was delisted from the First Section of the TSE in accordance with Rule 601 of the Securities Listing Regulations due to the filing of the petition and commencement of reorganization proceedings.
(d)
Going Concern
The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern, which contemplates the realization of assets and the satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business. As described above, the Company’s reorganization plan was approved by the Court and the Company has been operating its business with Micron’s support according to the Plan.
(2)
Reorganization Disclosures
(a)
Financial Reporting in Reorganization
The Company has applied ASC 852, effective as of the Petition Date, which is applicable to companies in reorganization proceedings under US bankruptcy law, because reorganization proceedings under the Reorganization Act are similar to those under the US bankruptcy law. While ASC 852 generally does not change the manner in which financial statements are prepared, ASC 852 requires that the financial statements for periods subsequent to the petition filing distinguish transactions and events that are directly associated with the reorganization from the ongoing operations of the business. Revenues, expenses (including professional fees), realized gains and losses, and provisions for losses resulting from the reorganization and restructuring of the business must be reported separately as reorganization items, except for those required to be reported as discontinued operations and extraordinary items, in the consolidated statements of operations. The balance sheet must distinguish pre-petition liabilities subject to compromise from pre-petition liabilities that are not subject to compromise and post-petition liabilities. Liabilities that may be affected by a plan of reorganization must be reported at the amounts expected to be allowed, even if they may be settled for lesser amounts as a result of the reorganization. In addition, cash receipts and payments resulting from the reorganization must be disclosed.
(b)
Condensed Combined Financial Information
The consolidated financial statements of the Company include entities which are not in the reorganization proceedings, the following presents condensed combined financial information of the entities in the reorganization proceedings. The condensed combined financial information has been prepared, in all material aspects, on the same basis as the consolidated financial statements of the Company.

(c)
Liabilities Subject to Compromise
Liabilities subject to compromise represent the estimated amounts expected to be allowed on known or potential claims to be resolved through the reorganization proceedings.
In accordance with ASC 852, substantially all of the Company’s unsecured debt has been classified as liabilities subject to compromise.
Differences between the liability amounts Elpida and Elpida Akita estimated and the claims filed by creditors will be investigated and resolved in connection with the claim resolution process. Elpida will continue to evaluate these liabilities throughout the reorganization proceedings and adjust the amounts as necessary. Such adjustments may be material. In light of the expected number of creditors, the claims resolution process may take considerable time to complete. Accordingly, the ultimate settlement amounts of allowed claims are not presently known.
The following table summarizes the components of liabilities subject to compromise included on the consolidated balance sheet at February 28, 2013 and March 31, 2012:

As noted in Note (1) (b) above, on February 28, 2013, the creditors agreed and the Court approved the Plan. In accordance with the Plan, approximately ¥117,268 of the liabilities subject to compromise were reclassified to their applicable balance sheet accounts such as long-term debt and bonds, accounts payable and obligations under capital leases and will be repaid over 7 years in accordance with payment terms specified in the Plan. Further, the Plan included 66.1% forgiveness of the remaining liabilities subject to compromise in Elpida. This forgiveness was recorded as a gain during the eleven months ended February 28, 2013. The balance of the liabilities subject to compromise at February 28, 2013 represents those remaining claims that are subject to repayment based on future performance of the Company.

However, Elpida was unable to honor the contractual obligation because of the commencement of corporate reorganization proceeding. As a result, Elpida was obligated to pay indemnification for the purchase price of the stocks to the holder. The obligation is included in liabilities subject to compromise.

(3)
Summary of Significant Accounting Policies
(a)
Change in Fiscal Year
According to the Reorganization Act, Elpida’s fiscal year end date changed to the day when the Plan was approved by the Court, which is February 28. In addition, as described in the Plan, Elpida’s fiscal year end date will be August 31, hereafter.
(b)
Use of Estimates
The preparation of consolidated financial statements in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the consolidated financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates and such differences may be material to the consolidated financial statements. Significant items subject to such estimates and assumptions include the useful lives of fixed assets; allowances for doubtful accounts and sales returns; the valuation of derivatives, deferred tax assets, fixed assets, inventory, investments, and stock options; reserves for employee benefit obligations, income tax uncertainties and other contingencies; and classification

14



ELPIDA MEMORY, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES
(DEBTORS-IN-POSSESSION)
NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (continued)


and measurement of lease obligations and liabilities subject to compromise.

(c)
Principles of Consolidation
The accompanying consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Elpida and its majority owned subsidiaries. All significant intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation. The Company has no involvement with variable interest entities. The Company accounts for investments over which it has significant influence but not a controlling financial interest using the equity method of accounting.
(d)
Foreign Currency Translation
Foreign currency transactions are measured at the applicable rates of exchange prevailing at the transaction dates. Assets and liabilities denominated in currencies other than Japanese yen are remeasured at the applicable rates of exchange prevailing at the balance sheet date with the resulting gain or loss credited or charged to income.
Elpida’s foreign subsidiaries use the local currencies other than Japanese yen as their functional currencies. Accordingly, assets and liabilities of foreign subsidiaries are translated into Japanese yen at applicable year-end rates of exchange and all revenue and expense accounts are translated at average rates of exchange during the year. The resulting translation adjustments are accumulated and included in accumulated other comprehensive income (loss) classified as part of stockholders’ equity.
(e)
Cash and Cash Equivalents
The Company considers all highly liquid investments with a maturity of three months or less when purchased to be cash equivalents.
(f)
Trade Accounts Receivable
Trade accounts receivable are recorded at the invoiced amount and do not bear interest. Amounts collected on trade accounts receivable are included in net cash provided by operating activities in the consolidated statements of cash flows. Allowance for doubtful trade receivables are determined based on a combination of historical experience, aging analysis, and any specific factors affecting customer accounts. Uncollectible trade accounts receivable are charged-off when legal actions have been taken to collect the receivable, and it becomes clear that an amount smaller than the original receivable will be recovered.
(g)
Inventories
Inventories, except for supplies, are stated at the lower of cost or market, cost being determined using the first-in, first-out method or the average cost method.
The cost of supplies is determined using the first-in, first-out method.
(h)
Revenue Recognition
The Company recognizes revenue when products are delivered and the customer takes ownership and assumes risk of loss, collection of the relevant receivable is probable, persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists and the sales price is fixed or determinable.
Taxes collected from customers and remitted to governmental authorities are accounted for on a net basis and therefore are excluded from revenues in the consolidated statements of operations.

(i)
Investment Securities
Investment securities at February 28, 2013 and March 31, 2012 consist of equity securities. The Company classifies its equity securities that have readily determinable fair values as available-for-sale.
Available-for-sale securities are recorded at fair value. Unrealized holding gains and losses, net of the related tax effect, on available-for-sale securities are excluded from earnings and are reported as a separate component of accumulated other comprehensive income until realized. Realized gains and losses from the sale of available-for-sale securities are determined on a specific-identification basis.
Decline in the market value of any available-for-sale security below cost that is deemed to be other-than-temporary results in impairment to reduce the carrying amount to fair value. To determine whether impairment is other-than-temporary, the Company considers all available information relevant to the collectability of the security, including past events, current conditions, and reasonable and supportable forecasts when developing estimates of cash flows expected to be collected. Evidence considered in this assessment includes the reasons for the impairment, the severity and duration of the impairment, changes in value subsequent to year-end, forecasted performance of the investee, and the general market condition in the geographic area or industry the investee operates in.
(j)
Derivative Instruments and Hedging Activities
The Company recognizes all derivative instruments as either assets or liabilities in the balance sheet at their respective fair values. For derivatives designated in hedging relationships, changes in the fair value are either offset through earnings against the change in fair value of the hedged item attributable to the risk being hedged or recognized in accumulated other comprehensive income, to the extent the derivative is effective at offsetting the changes in cash flows being hedged until the hedged item affects earnings.
The Company enters into derivative contracts that it intends to designate as a hedge of an exposure to changes in the fair value of a recognized asset or liability that are attributable to a particular risk (fair value hedge). For hedging relationships, the Company formally documents the hedging relationship and its risk-management objective and strategy for undertaking the hedge, the hedging instrument, the hedged transaction, the nature of the risk being hedged, how the hedging instrument’s effectiveness in offsetting the hedged risk will be assessed prospectively and retrospectively, and a description of the method used to measure ineffectiveness. The Company also formally assesses, both at the inception of the hedging relationship and on an ongoing basis, whether the derivatives that are used in hedging relationships are highly effective in offsetting changes in fair value of hedged transactions. For derivative instruments that are designated and qualify as part of a fair value hedging relationship, the effective portion of the gain or loss on the derivative is reported as a component of earnings. Gains and losses on the derivative representing either hedge ineffectiveness or hedge components excluded from the assessment of effectiveness are recognized in earnings.
The Company discontinues hedge accounting prospectively when it determines that the derivative is no longer effective in offsetting changes in fair value attributable to the hedged risk, the derivative expires or is sold, terminated, or exercised, the fair value hedge is dedesignated in accordance with the derecognition criteria for hedge accounting.
In all situations in which hedge accounting is discontinued and the derivative remains outstanding, the Company continues to carry the derivative at its fair value on the balance sheet and recognizes any subsequent changes in its fair value in earnings.

Plant and equipment held under capital leases are amortized on a straight-line basis over the shorter of the lease term or estimated useful life of the asset.
Total depreciation for the eleven months ended February 28, 2013 and the year ended March 31, 2012 was ¥73,846 and ¥113,733, respectively.
(l)
Major Maintenance Activities
The Company incurs maintenance costs on its major equipment. Repair and maintenance costs are expensed as incurred.
(m)
Intangible Assets
Intangible assets with finite lives consist primarily of license fees and technologies. License fees are amortized on a straight-line basis over the contractual periods which are principally 2 to 15 years. Certain costs incurred to develop or obtain internal use computer software are capitalized according to ASC Subtopic 350-40, Internal-Use Software, and amortized on a straight-line basis over the estimated useful lives of five years or less.
(n)
Research and Development and Advertising Costs
Research and development and advertising costs are expensed as incurred. Research and development costs amounted to ¥26,803 and ¥42,183 for the eleven months ended February 28, 2013 and the year ended March 31, 2012, respectively. Advertising costs amounted to ¥1 and ¥8 for the eleven months ended February 28, 2013 and the year ended March 31, 2012, respectively.
(o)
Income Taxes
Income taxes are accounted for under the asset and liability method. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized for the future tax consequences attributable to differences between the financial statement carrying amounts of existing assets and liabilities and their respective tax bases and operating loss and tax credit carryforwards. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled. The effect on deferred tax assets and liabilities of a change in tax rates is recognized in income in the period that includes the enactment date. The Company recognizes the effect of income tax positions only if those positions are more likely than not of being sustained. Recognized income tax positions are measured at the largest amount that is greater than 50% likely of being realized. Changes in recognition or measurement are reflected in the period in which the change in judgment occurs. The Company records interest related to unrecognized tax benefits in interest expense and penalties in selling, general, and administrative expenses.

(p)
Stock Option Plan
The Company recognizes the cost of all employee stock options in the consolidated financial statements. Equity-classified awards are measured at the grant date fair value of the award. The Company estimates grant date fair value using the Black-Scholes-Merton option-pricing model. Compensation cost for all stock options is recognized using the straight-line attribution method reduced for estimated forfeitures.
(q)
Retirement Benefits
The Company has retirement benefit plans which consist of defined benefit pension plans, lump-sum indemnity plans and defined contribution plans.
The Company records annual amounts relating to its defined benefit plans based on calculations that incorporate various actuarial and other assumptions, including discount rates, mortality, assumed rates of return, compensation increases and turnover rates. The Company reviews its assumptions on an annual basis and makes modifications to the assumptions based on current rates and trends when it is appropriate to do so. The effect of modifications to those assumptions is recorded in accumulated other comprehensive income and amortized to net periodic cost over future periods using the corridor method. The Company believes that the assumptions utilized in recording its obligations under its plans are reasonable based on its experience and market conditions.
For the defined contribution plans, the Company recognizes cash contributions as net pension cost.
(r)
Long-Lived Assets
Long-lived assets, such as property, plant, and equipment, and purchased intangible assets subject to amortization, are reviewed for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of an asset may not be recoverable. If circumstances require a long-lived asset or asset group be tested for possible impairment, the Company first compares undiscounted cash flows expected to be generated by that asset or asset group to its carrying value. If the carrying value of the long-lived asset or asset group is not recoverable on an undiscounted cash flow basis, impairment is recognized to the extent that the carrying value exceeds its fair value. Fair value is determined through various valuation techniques including discounted cash flow models, quoted market values and third-party independent appraisals, as considered necessary. Assets to be disposed of by sale are reported at the lower of the carrying amount or fair value less costs to sell, and are no longer depreciated.
(s)
Commitments and Contingencies
Liabilities for loss contingencies arising from claims, assessments, litigation, fines, and penalties and other sources are recorded when it is probable that a liability has been incurred and the amount can be reasonably estimated. Legal costs incurred in connection with loss contingencies are expensed as incurred.

Fair Value Measurements
The Company utilizes valuation techniques that maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs to the extent possible. The Company determines fair value based on assumptions that market participants would use in pricing an asset or liability in the principal or most advantageous market. When considering market participant assumptions in fair value measurements, the following fair value hierarchy distinguishes between observable and unobservable inputs, which are categorized in one of the following levels:
Level 1 Inputs:      Unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities accessible to the reporting entity at the measurement date.
Level 2 Inputs:      Other than quoted prices included in Level 1 inputs that are observable for the asset or liability, either directly or indirectly, for substantially the full term of the asset or liability.
Level 3 Inputs:      Unobservable inputs for the asset or liability used to measure fair value to the extent that observable inputs are not available, thereby allowing for situations in which there is little, if any, market activity for the asset or liability at the measurement date.
(v)
Product Warranties
The Company generally provides a limited warranty that its products are in compliance with Company specifications existing at the time of delivery. Under the Company’s general terms and conditions of sale, the liability for certain failures of product during a stated warranty period is usually limited to repair or replacement of defective items or return of, or a credit with respect to, amounts paid for such items. The Company accrues product warranty costs which are based primarily on historical experience of actual warranty claims as well as current information on costs for repair or replacement of defective products.

Recently Adopted Accounting Standards
In June 2011, the FASB issued a new accounting standard on the presentation of comprehensive income. The new standard requires the presentation of comprehensive income, the components of net income and the components of other comprehensive income either in a single continuous statement of comprehensive income or in two separate but consecutive statements. The Company adopted this standard in the eleven months ended February 28, 2013.
The adoption of this standard did not have a material impact on the accompanying financial statements.

Business and Credit Concentrations
The Company is primarily engaged in a single line of business of designing, manufacturing and sale of DRAMs and therefore the fluctuation of unit volumes and prices in the DRAM market can significantly impact the Company’s business.
For the eleven months ended February 28, 2013, the two largest customers accounted for 24.0% and 13.0% of the Company’s sales, and the largest customer accounted for 11.7% of accounts receivable at February 28, 2013. For the year ended March 31, 2012, the two largest customers accounted for 18.5% and 12.6% of the Company’s sales, and the largest customer accounted for 13.9% of accounts receivable at March 31, 2012.

Derivative Instruments and Hedging Activities
The Company has entered into interest rate swap agreements to manage the exposure to interest rate risk associated with its underlying debt and foreign exchange forward contracts to offset the adverse impact of fluctuations in foreign exchange rates on accounts receivable and accounts payable denominated in foreign currencies arising from the Company’s operating activities. Neither the interest rate swap agreements nor the foreign exchange forward contracts are designated as hedging instruments under ASC 815, and changes in fair value of both interest rate swap agreements and foreign exchange forward contracts are recognized in income. The related receivable or payable is included in other current assets or other current liabilities.
The counterparties to the Company’s interest rate swap agreements and foreign exchange forward contracts are major financial institutions. As a normal business risk, the Company is exposed to credit loss in the event of nonperformance by the counterparties; however, the Company does not anticipate nonperformance

long-term other payables, which are included in other liabilities.

The estimated fair values of the financial instruments shown in the above table at February 28, 2013 and March 31, 2012 represent the amounts that would be received to sell those assets or that would be paid to transfer those liabilities in an orderly transaction between market participants at that date. Those fair value measurements maximize the use of observable inputs. However, in situations where there is little, if any, market activity for the asset or liability at the measurement date, the fair value measurement reflects the Company’s own judgments about the assumptions that market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability. Those judgments are developed by the Company based on the best information available in the circumstances, including expected cash flows and appropriately risk-adjusted discount rates, available observable and unobservable inputs.
The following methods and assumptions were used to estimate the fair value of each class of financial instruments:
Cash and cash equivalents, trade accounts receivable, other accounts receivables, short-term borrowings, trade accounts payable, other accounts payables, and accrued income taxes: The carrying amounts, at face value or cost plus accrued interest, approximate fair value because of the short maturity of these instruments.
Investment securities: Equity securities classified as available for sale are measured using quoted market prices at the reporting date multiplied by the quantity held. The fair values of equity securities accounted for under the cost method (nonmarketable equity securities) are determined using methodologies that give consideration to a range of factors, including but not limited to the price at which investments were acquired, the nature of the investments, market conditions, trading values on comparable public securities, current and projected operating performance, and financing transactions subsequent to the acquisition of the investments.
Long-term debts, obligations under capital leases, long-term other payables, straight bonds, and convertible bonds: With respect to the fair value at February 28, 2013 and March 31 2012, since the Company was under the reorganization process, the Company could not enter into similar financing at February 28, 2013 and March 31 2012. As such, it is impractical to obtain a fair value for the long-term borrowings, obligations under capital leases, long-term other payables, straight bonds, and convertible bonds at February 28, 2013 and March 31, 2012.

For the year ended March 31, 2012, the Company classified certain investments in Level 1 as the Company used an unadjusted quoted market price in active markets to value the investment. In addition, the Company classified the assets described above in Level 3 as the Company used unobservable inputs to value the assets when recognizing impairment losses related to the assets. The fair value for the major assets was measured through the replacement cost method and discounted cash flow method. See Note (24) for further details of impairment of long-lived assets.
(11)
Equity Method Investments
Investments in an affiliate accounted for under the equity method consist of 39.64% of the common stock of Tera Probe, Inc. (“Tera Probe”), a semiconductor test house. Tera Probe was a consolidated subsidiary until December 16, 2010, on which date Tera Probe became a public company and the Company lost control.
At February 28, 2013, the carrying amount of the investment in Tera Probe was ¥3,226 and the fair value of the investment based on its market price was ¥3,919.
At March 31, 2012, the fair value of the investment decreased to ¥3,172 and the Company evaluated the recoverability of the carrying value of the investment. As a result, the Company determined that there was an other-than-temporary decline in the value of the investment in Tera Probe and recorded an impairment loss of ¥4,029 at March 31, 2012.
(12)
Leases
The Company is obligated under long-term capital lease agreements covering certain facilities and equipment that expire at various dates during the next 11 years. Certain leases contain renewal options for varying periods, and certain leases include options to purchase the leased property at the end of the lease term. Leases generally require the Company to pay for insurance, taxes and maintenance of the property.
The Company entered into long-term agreements to purchase electricity and gas with certain suppliers (see Note (23)). The electricity and gas are generated by co-generation systems and nitrogen gas supply systems owned by the energy suppliers and these systems are built on the Company’s premises to provide the electricity and gas exclusively for the Company. The arrangements are treated as leases, and based on the terms of agreements, the arrangements are accounted for as capital leases.
At February 28, 2013 and March 31, 2012, the gross amount of leased assets and related accumulated amortization recorded under capital leases were as follows:

Asset Retirement Obligations
The Company has asset retirement obligations (AROs) arising from regulatory requirements to perform certain asset retirement activities at the time that certain long-lived assets are disposed of. The liability was initially measured at fair value and subsequently is adjusted for accretion expense and changes in the amount or timing of the estimated cash flows. The corresponding asset retirement costs are capitalized as part of the carrying amount of the related long-lived asset and depreciated over the asset’s remaining useful life. The following table presents the activity for the AROs for the eleven months ended February 28, 2013 and the year ended March 31, 2012:

Under the terms of the convertible bonds, as a result of filing of the petition for commencement of reorganization proceedings all amounts outstanding under these convertible bonds were accelerated and became immediately due and payable. As a result, the Company classified the convertible bonds as liabilities subject to compromise at February 28, 2013 and March 31, 2012. Also upon the commencement of reorganization proceedings, conversion options and call options attached to these convertible bonds became unexercisable.
The aggregate maturities of long-term debt not subject to compromise for each of the five years subsequent to February 28, 2013 are as follows:

Income Taxes

Tax Rate Reconciliation
Elpida and its domestic consolidated subsidiaries are subject to corporation tax, inhabitants’ taxes and enterprise tax in Japan, which, in the aggregate, resulted in a statutory tax rate of approximately 38.0% and 40.7% for the eleven months ended February 28, 2013 and year ended March 31, 2012, respectively. Income taxes of the foreign consolidated subsidiaries are based generally on the tax rates applicable in their countries of incorporation.

On November 30, 2011, the National Diet of Japan approved laws amending previous income tax laws. Upon the change in the laws, the statutory income tax rate in Japan was changed to approximately 38.0% for fiscal years beginning on or after April 1, 2012, and will be changed to approximately 35.6% for fiscal years beginning on or after April 1, 2015. Thus, the Company and its domestic subsidiaries remeasured deferred tax assets and liabilities as of the enactment date based on the new tax rates to be applied in the fiscal years in which temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled. The effect of tax rate changes in Japan did not have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.
Significant components of reconciling items between the statutory tax rate and the effective tax rate for the eleven months ended February 28, 2013 and the year ended March 31, 2012 were as follows:
