Announcement on News Article on April 21, 2015.

There was certain news article in Japan on April 15, 2015, which reported on Nichia's semiconductor laser diodes, but Nichia did not develop, or announce the development of, its new laser diodes with 1,000 times more optical output power than conventional laser diodes.

The publisher of the article presumably reported its own comparison of the performance data of laser diodes, which Nichia reported on February 25, 2015, with the output power of the laser diodes used in laser pointers that are generally used. Such comparison, under Nichia's view, is not appropriate.
