JSR to Transfer Stock of its Subsidiary

IR  01/13/2009
JSR Corporation ("JSR"; President: Yoshinori Yoshida) reached a basic agreement on January 13, 2009 to transfer all stock shares of its wholly owned subsidiary EXCEL TOKAI CO., LTD. (henceforth referred to as "EXCEL TOKAI") to Nanbu Plastics Co., Ltd. (henceforth referred to as "Nanbu Plastics").

1. Reasons for stock transfer

EXCEL TOKAI was established in 1971 for the purpose of developing application for JSR's plastics business. Specializing in the market for foaming profile extrusion molding products, EXCEL TOKAI manufactured, marketed, and sold housing and industrial materials.

JSR currently develops and implements business strategies to maximize its corporate value. Taking EXCEL TOKAI's situations and business orientation into consideration, JSR has judged that business alliance or transfer is the optimum to further expand and develop its business.

On the other hand, Nanbu Plastics has judged that it could expect synergetic effects between its extrusion molding technology and its lineup of products, centering on large-size mold items, and EXCEL TOKAI's special technology for medium- to small-size molding and its lineup of products.

JSR and Nanbu Plastics discussed and agreed that JSR would transfer entire shareholding of EXCEL TOKAI to Nanbu Plastics for the continual business development and further growth of EXCEL TOKAI.
