Alinamin Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd.
Notice Regarding Acquisition of Shares of Yuka Holdings Co., Ltd.
Alinamin Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo; President and CEO Atsushi Morisawa; hereinafter “the Company” or “Alinamin Pharmaceutical”) announced that Yuka Holdings Co., Ltd. (Location: Onojo City, Fukuoka Prefecture; President and CEO Keiichiro Nakayama; We would like to inform you that we have acquired all the shares of Yuka HD) on November 1, 2022.
Originating from the division responsible for the consumer healthcare business of Takeda Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd., Takeda Consumer Healthcare Co., Ltd. was established in 2017, and as an independent operating company Alinamin Pharmaceutical from April 2021. We have been developing our healthcare business for many years.
Yuka HD was founded in 2003. For people’s health and beautiful skin, we have formulated “Medicated Yuka Soap” with the “Cha no Shizuku” brand, which contains pesticide-free organically grown tea leaf extract from Kagoshima Prefecture. We sell various skin care products (blemish, whitening care, etc.) by mail order through our group companies.
Through the acquisition of shares of Yuka HD, we expect to expand and strengthen our mail-order business in a non-continuous manner by utilizing the mail-order sales know-how that Yuka HD has built up over nearly 20 years. We believe that by entering the “skincare” field as a broadly defined health care with high affinity, we will be able to respond to the diversifying needs of consumer health care in recent years.
Going forward, we will aim to maximize the value of our company and Yuka HD, and will further contribute to people’s health through the provision of high-quality, excellent products and services and appropriate information from both companies.
