April 24, 2013

Information Management Solution provider Toppan Forms Co., Ltd. (Toppan Forms hereunder) and Zhejian Matsuoka Printing Co.,Ltd (Matsuoka hereunder), a printing company in People Republic of China, signed an agreement for capital and business alliance that covers 5 areas –(1) investment, (2) procurement, (3) production, (4) sales, and (5) technical assistance. Toppan Forms will invest in 20% of Matsuoka’s shares through its overseas holding company in Hong Kong and provide business forms and data print service (DPS) production technology and expertise. Matsuoka is currently providing mainly business forms and DPS. The first collaboration of the two companies is to produce a leading edge delivery slip ahead of local competitors and supply them to Japanese and local logistic companies in the Shanghai area.

China is experiencing a robust consumption due to salary increase of its citizens backed by high economic growth. To cope with increasing needs for various types of business forms and DPS, two companies will cooperate to boost market share in the Shanghai area by expanding the number of products handled.

Toppan Forms aims to increase their sales overseas to 20 billion yen by FY 2016. By forming a business partnership in Huadong region that includes the second largest city Shanghai, the company expects to strengthen its sales capabilities towards both Japanese and local companies in China.

Simultaneously, Toppan Forms will also increase its market competitiveness by importing products from Matsuoka to Japan.
