The Mizuho Financial Group has paid some 50 million yen in damages to Tokyo Electric Power Co. for losses Tepco incurred as a result of computer failures at Mizuho in April, Mizuho sources said Saturday.

The payment, made earlier this month, was mainly to cover Tepco’s costs from mailing utility fee payment receipts to customers, the sources said.
