  1. 1.Objective of the purchase
    JCAM and Mitsubishi Chemical Agri Co., Ltd. integrated their businesses on October 1, 2009. Since this integration, JCAM has developed, manufactured, and sold fertilizers with the aim of contributing to agricultural sectors and related sectors in and outside Japan through the fertilizer business it runs as a joint venture established by the JNC Group, Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation (hereafter "MCC"), and Asahi Kasei Corp.

We determined that the JCAM brand successfully penetrated the market and steadily earned revenue over these years owing to the synergy created through the business integration.

We decided to exercise more control over JCAM in order to increase revenue from the fertilizer business by purchasing a portion of shares in JCAM owned by MCC, one of our joint venture partners. In doing so, we continue to aim for greater revenue from the fertilizer business.
