TOKYO -- Bowing somberly during an online news conference on Monday, Fujitsu CEO Takahito Tokita apologized for the error in the company's equipment that led the Tokyo Stock Exchange to halt operations for a whole day last week.

"This is supposed to be an occasion to talk about Fujitsu's digital transformation, but I first need to apologize ... as the leader of the company that supplied devices and developed systems that caused errors [at TSE], for causing troubles for a lot of people," said Tokita.
