Notice Regarding Capital Alliance between DISCO Co., Ltd. and JAFCO Group Co., Ltd.
DISCO Co., Ltd. (Head office: Bunkyo-ku, Tokyo; President: Masaro Niidome) aims for further growth, and will be managed and operated by JAFCO Group Co., Ltd. (Head office: Minato-ku, Tokyo; President: Keisuke Miyoshi). We would like to inform you that we have concluded a capital tie-up agreement with a fund (hereinafter referred to as “JAFCO”), including a capital increase through a third-party allotment.
DISCO was founded in 1973, and has been involved in providing employment and educational information services, etc., and has been providing various services related to human resources for nearly 50 years. Among the “recruitment-related business” that is one of the core of our business, the new graduate recruitment support service has a very important meaning for the consistency of the company’s image strategy and PR, so the importance of recruitment publicity will continue to increase in the future. We believe that it will increase. In addition, we believe that the market needs for consulting/support services related to recruitment will continue to be solid in the future.
In such a market environment, we are aiming for further business growth. We will strengthen our media site, which can be said to be the core engine of our business, and organically link our wide range of businesses, including recruitment and public relations consulting. The promotion of cross-selling will be a particularly important measure. In addition, in the business for educational institutions, we would like to improve and improve the added value of services in areas where growth can be expected, such as the conversion of school operations to DX.
In the future, in the process of realizing the business growth described above, the management team’s scope of management will expand further, and the quality of management decisions will be required to be more precise than ever. In such a situation, JAFCO, which has supported the growth of various companies not only on the capital side but also on the business side for about half a century, has the know-how to improve corporate value cultivated through past management support results. We would like to ask you to provide us with this information and to accompany us as a strategic partner. With the strong support of JAFCO, Japan’s largest venture capital, we aim to achieve sustainable growth and even an IPO.
We appreciate your continued support.
