Background of the New System Development

Due to the challenge of an increasing number of sales opportunities in the overseas M&A market, leading to a complexity in identifying potential acquisition targets. The process of identifying these targets was time-consuming and resource-intensive, requiring significant improvements to achieve efficient matching.

Furthermore, recognizing the need to not only improve operational efficiency, but also to improve the quality of cross-border M&A transactions is essential and continuously improve the value we provide to our customers. Trends in the cross-border M&A market are changing rapidly every day, and quick and accurate decision-making is the key to success. In order to respond flexibly to these market changes and provide faster and more accurate services to our customers, we have begun developing a new system.

■ Approach to SDGs in Collaborative Development

At GPC Group, we are actively engaged in efforts to address the globally relevant Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and we believe that this collaborative development will primarily contribute to the following SDGs:

Building the Foundation for Industrial and Technological Innovation
(SDGs Goal 9)

We anticipate that this new system will serve as an example of technological innovation within the industry, fostering the development of more efficient and sustainable industries. Leveraging AI and data analysis for automation processes will enable effective resource utilization and process optimization, contributing to overall productivity enhancement within the industry.

Building Sustainable Communities (SDGs Goal 11)

We believe that the streamlining of the cross-border M&A market can contribute to the revitalization of economic activities and the sustainable development of cities and communities. Efficient cross-border M&A transactions lead to the creation of new business opportunities and the expansion of employment opportunities, thus promoting sustainable urban development and sound economic growth.

Achieving Goals through Partnerships (SDGs Goal 17)

Through this collaborative development, it is possible to strengthen international partnerships, showcasing the importance of cooperation across different sectors and borders for global problem-solving through technological innovation. Such partnerships contribute to accelerating global initiatives towards achieving the SDGs.

Overview of the New System

The system significantly improves the process of M&A transactions, enabling more efficient search and selection of potential buyers. This will shorten the time it takes to conclude M&A transactions and make more effective use of internal resources, enabling sellers to be matched with more suitable potential buyers in a shorter period of time.

Summary

We hope that this system will bring a new wave of innovation to the cross-border M&A market, taking a step towards a brighter future. Through technological innovation, we strive to continue providing our customers with added value and contributing to the realization of a sustainable society.

We are honoured to share this progress with you. Moving forward, we remain committed to advancing initiatives that support technological innovation and sustainable development.
