TOKYO, April 21 Shares of Japan's Fujifilm
Holdings Corp fell more than 3 percent in early trade
on Friday after the company postponed its earnings report over
an investigation into accounting practices at an overseas unit.
Fujifilm said on Thursday it had decided to set up a
third-party panel to look into the validity of accounting over
some lease transactions at Fuji Xerox New Zealand Ltd for
periods before the 2015 financial year.
Fujifilm had originally planned to announce earnings on
April 27 but delayed the announcement indefinitely until it has
the results of the investigation.
