Contributing to a sustainable society through M&A
Through the provision of M&A services, the Group contributes to the revitalization of local communities by ensuring the survival and development of companies and maintaining employment. More than 99% of the companies in Japan are small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). According to the Teikoku Databank's "National Survey of Companies without Successors (2021)," approximately two-thirds (61.5%) of companies are without a successor. When a business closes due to lack of a successor, not only is unique technology and know-how lost, but the employees and their families are also affected. In addition, the successor problem is not only an issue for small and medium-sized enterprises, but also becomes a problem that can be a factor in the deterioration of the Japanese economy as a whole. The Group will contribute to solving this problem through M&A operations.
Avoiding Economic Losses through Quality Services Using AI Systems
By utilizing our proprietary AI and DX systems, we will provide speedy matching services while improving the closing rate, thereby resolving business succession issues, employment retention, and management issues faced by SMEs.

The Group will collaborate with operating companies, tax accountant offices and accounting firms rooted in each region, and provide know-how and support so that these partners can tackle M&A operations with confidence.
