Richer than Large Enterprises?

Since 2009, a majority of the Japanese listed companies have increased cash reserves. As a result, the rate of the listed firms that operate no-debut management substantially reached 59% in 2017. However, with regard to growing medium-sized firms in Japan, the rate was 70%, meaning that they are more stable financially than large enterprises.

For instance, Suzumo (the sushi making machine) implemented a capital increase through third party allocation last May. They are planning to accelerate M&As and oversease and the investment in plant and equipment.

In overseas countries, the number of sushi lovers has skyrocketed due to the boom in Japanese cuisine. Hense, the demand for sushi makers can be expected to increase over the next years, and they will take the aggressive strategy.

For large companies’ growth, the role of medium-sized enterprises is significantly important in terms of the technology development, cost reduction, etc. The more they develop their businesses. the more large corporations can benefit from it.
