On October 8, 2017, Kobe Steel issued a press release titled “Improper
conduct concerning a portion of the aluminum and copper products
manufactured by Kobe Steel,” announcing that employees at four of its
factories had altered inspection certificates on aluminum and copper
products between September 2016 and August of this year, making it
appear as though the products met manufacturing specifications required
by customers, such as tensile strength, when the products did not.
According to the company, “[t]his incident of improper conduct came to
light following self-inspections and emergency quality audits of the
compliance status of contracts executed as to products shipped over the
past year.” It also reported that causing the serious matter “has
brought overwhelming shame to the Company.”
On this news, Kobe Steel’s stock dropped nearly 8% on October 9, 2017,
and plunged nearly another 25% on October 10, causing investors hundreds
of millions in losses.
