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.
