BSAA Remote Desktop - Baker Fax

Baker Communications Fax (Umbrella) (ベーカー通信FAX (Umbrella) Bēkā tsūshin fakkusu (anburera)?) is an approximate translation of a fax archived in the BSAA Remote Desktop. This newspaper transcript was used in the viral-marketing of Resident Evil 5 in Japan and, being written by Capcom Japan, is considered a canonical tie-in to the Resident Evil series. Its appearance in Resident Evil Archives II confirmed its status. The transcript is based around a 2003 newspaper article regarding the inevitable collapse of Umbrella Japan, following the bankruptcy of its parent company.

Domestic Branch of Umbrella to Dissolve


TOKYO, JAPAN: Today, the Japanese branch of multinational corporation Umbrella Pharmaceutical Incorporated accounce its dissolution and began liquidating assets. Its parent company declared bankruptcy earlier this week.

Umbrella established its Japanese branch in 1984 for the initial purpose of importing pharmaceuticals developed in America. In 1987, it completed the Umbrella Japan Laboratory, which used biotechnology to pursue independent research and pharmaceutical development.

Umbrella's stocks had been on the decline following accusations regarding the 1998 "Raccoon City tragedy," and the blow to public image has caused its sales to stagnate. With Umbrella recently found liable in the numerous lawsuits filed against them in the wake of that same tragedy, the company was forced to declare bankruptcy.

The Japanese branch of the company has been looking for new sources of funding in recent weeks, but received no offers from pharmaceutical or other companies at home or abroad. The decision to close was made in light of this fact.
