Hisao Tanaka, Toshiba’s chief executive and president has resigned after the Japanese technology manufacturer was found to have made inaccurate accounting claims.

His resignation came in a day after an outside investigation found the company overstated profits by 151.8 billion yen ($1.2 billion) over a seven year period.

“The company takes the situation it has caused very seriously and we deeply apologise to our shareholders, investors and all other stakeholders,” a press release from the firm stated.

Tanaka will be succeeded by chairman Masashi Muromachi, with vice-chairman Norio Sasaki also stepping down.
