Notice concerning changes in the capital structure of FUJITSU Component Ltd.

Fujitsu Components Europe

Hoofddorp, August 02, 2018

Fujitsu Limited and Fujitsu Component Limited (FCL) have announced a change in the capital structure of FCL. In 1995, in order to consolidate and strengthen the electronic component businesses operated across various companies in the Fujitsu Group, Fujitsu Takamisawa Component Limited was created through a joint investment by Fujitsu and Takamisawa Electric Co., Ltd. This integrated Fujitsu’s business units relating to electronic components with Takamisawa’s design and sales units. Subsequently, the structure of the company was altered in 2001 to become the current FCL Group. While it has been a subsidiary of Fujitsu, since 1995, FCL has continued to conduct business activities with the goal of being an electronic component company that contributes to greater value for all its customers, pursuing synergies with Fujitsu while also developing independent business as the company responsible for the Fujitsu Group’s electronic component business. Over the last five years, FCL smoothly expanded its sales and built a foundation for growth, but it has come to the recognition that an ample amount of capital and greater synergy with its extensive customer base, including the Fujitsu Group, is required for further growth. 

Fujitsu announced in its management direction in October 2015 that, with the advance of IoT, it plans to concentrate management resources in Technology Solutions, where it has a competitive advantage so as to increase its global competitive strength through connected services. At the same time, for its device businesses, including electronic components, it plans to position them as independent businesses, aiming for them to prevail over the competition on their own through product development and business expansion, while still pursuing synergies within the Fujitsu Group. 

As a result of discussions about FCL’s capital and business planning, conducted based on the two companies’ direction and shared recognition, and upon the premise of FCL’s capital expansion and continued collaboration with Fujitsu, FCL decided to accept an infusion of capital from a company (Founder’s Consultants Holdings Inc.) affiliated with the Longreach Group, an independent investment company. Furthermore, Fujitsu decided to accept an offer from FCL to buy back its own shares of stock from Fujitsu, resulting in equity interests of 25% for Fujitsu and 75% for the Longreach Group. It is hoped that this will lead to a significant enrichment of FCL’s capital, which will ensure a strong financial foundation that will both increase its independence and enhance its ability to grow. At the same time, FCL will continue to pursue synergies within the Fujitsu Group as an affiliated company, including by utilizing its design and manufacturing capabilities for the electronic components that comprise one part of Fujitsu’s IoT solutions. The companies have also determined that by being able to further deepen a worldwide customer base, this will contribute to greater strength in FCL's business foundation. 

There will be no changes to the company name, brand, employees, or business structure.
