TOKYO -- Shareholders in many of Japan's utilities are split over the prospect of restarting nuclear power operations -- a discussion complicated by one company's apology for withholding information in the wake of the country's last nuclear disaster.

Tokyo Electric Power Co. Holdings, or Tepco, and eight other regional power companies held their annual shareholders meetings Tuesday, where executives attempted to make amends after a rough year. Tepco was revealed earlier this month to have intentionally delayed labeling the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power station as in a state of "meltdown" in the wake of 2011's earthquake and tsunami.
