Full-year forecast of FY 2014
Following on from UK-based Charterhouse PM Limited, we acquired Australia-based Ergo Asia Pty Limited based on a policy to strengthen Marketing Print Management (MPM) as a strategic business.
Marketing will be a key ingredient for large firms going forward and Ergo has capabilities and a proven record in providing exceptional consulting aimed at keeping marketing costs low in an efficient manner while making use of multi-media. For these reasons we made the decision to acquire Ergo.
In addition, we newly released "bizhub PRESS C1100," a high-end color digital printing system. Although we have secured top position in the genre, from light production to mid-production, this is the first model we have introduced with confidence for genuine entry into the high-end market.
