Initiatives for Certain Stakeholder Groups Partner Companies

Open Innovation

Initiatives through joint ventures
with Japanese advertising agencies

In 2013, the Company made Dentsu Marketing Insight Inc. (now Dentsu Macromill Insight) a consolidated subsidiary. In 2019, Tokyo Survey Research Inc. (now H.M. Marketing Research), which was formerly a wholly-owned subsidiary of Hakuhodo became a consolidated subsidiary.
We jointly manage these companies with our partners, one with Dentsu and one with Hakuhodo, who hold a minority of each company’s equity. As joint ventures, they carry out marketing research for the Dentsu and Hakuhodo groups.
When considering marketing initiatives in Japan, the advertising agencies Dentsu and Hakuhodo have a major presence. Together with these two companies, we are working in our joint ventures to build a marketing research business that includes digital areas for achieving more effective marketing measures.
