The Conversion of Some Overseas Offices

To a Representative Office

Tokyo, May 15, 2018 --- MUFG Bank today announced its intention to change the status of the Santiago Branch (Chile), Buenos Aires Branch (Argentina) and Karachi Branch (Pakistan) from Branch to Representative Office, subject to regulatory approvals.

Once the status of each is changed to Representative Office, those offices will discontinue booking services. However, they will continue to develop relationships with local customers and adopt an off-shore banking business model, thereby contributing to the growth of its customers and of those regions.

MUFG Bank will continue to endeavor to meet customers' needs better than before, fully leveraging the largest network among Japanese banks.
