Bandai Visual & Sentai Filmworks Issue Joint Statement on “Sola”

TOKYO & HOUSTON, June 3, 2010 – Bandai Visual and Sentai Filmworks jointly announced today their united position regarding the title named “sola.” The parties disclosed that a clerical error resulted in the title being made available for license and distribution to Sentai Filmworks.

However, Bandai Entertainment, INC. will continue to distribute “sola”.

Bandai Visual and Sentai Filmworks agreed to unwind the issue in good faith and Sentai Filmworks has retired the title from its catalog.

Both companies regret any confusion caused by these inadvertent circumstances. Each company sincerely appreciates their fan's ongoing loyalty and continued support for “sola” and their other respective programs.
