NEC Completes Process for Acquisition of All Shares of KMD Holding


TOKYO, Feb, 28 2019 - (JCN Newswire) - NEC Corporation (TSE:6701) has completed the process for acquiring all shares of KMD Holding ApS (KMD Holding), the holding company of KMD A/S (KMD), the largest Danish IT company, making KMD Holding an NEC subsidiary on February 21 this year.

NEC has also decided to accept an equity investment from Fund Corporation for the Overseas Development of Japan's ICT and Postal Services (JICT) for the special purpose company that NEC established in Denmark for the purpose of acquiring KMD Holding.

Specifically, NEC will transfer a portion of its shares in the special-purpose company to JICT for 1.12 billion Danish Kroner. JICT is scheduled to invest in March of this year, and will own approximately 15% of the special purpose company.

With this investment from JICT, NEC will be able to reduce acquisition costs while retaining control of KMD and to allocate funds to further growth investments. In addition, with a shareholder such as JICT, which is a public-private sector fund in which the Japanese government has a majority stake, KMD will be able to build even better relationships with government agencies, which are KMD's major clients.

NEC has positioned global safety business as a growth engine in its three-year medium-term management plan, the "Mid-term Management Plan 2020," and is promoting a shift towards service businesses that utilize horizontally deployable platforms. The acquisition of KMD Holding is part of these efforts. Going forward, NEC will continue to promote the development of its core technologies and solutions, while acquiring new customer bases, delivery resources, core technologies and business models through M&A and partnerships, in order to further expand the social solutions business, centering on the safety business, and to improve profitability.
