CEO Message

UNIVA CAPITAL Group Chairman and Group CEO Shuji Inaba

UNIVA CAPITAL is an integrated growth enterprise.

We are not an investment fund.
UNIVA CAPITAL Group was founded in 2006 with the idea of creating a growth-oriented enterprise group through integration of multiple values. Its form can be called a “federated company group”.
I believe that the culture of greed and competition has gone too far, which is one of the reasons for the current economic crisis.
This is not to say that we reject competition.
We intend to press forward together in these challenging times by maximizing the synergies between companies of value, through recognition and leveraging of their own strengths, to gain greater competitiveness.

UNIVA CAPITAL Group comprises 34 operating companies, 12 businesses in 14 countries / regions and is supported by UNIVA CAPITAL companies and approximately 700 employees. Each company’s strengths act as a catalyst for the evolution of the others. The Group will continue to move ahead boldly in this changing world, powered by the resulting synergies that generate energy.

What's Univa

UNIVA CAPITAL Group is a federated corporate group.

The federation comprises 34 operating companies in 12 businesses, in addition to the UNIVA CAPITAL companies that support them.
The businesses run the gamut from health care to advertising.
Each of these companies could stand on its own. But by melding their strengths across industry boundaries,
we have created a more prosperous group, with annual sales for the group as a whole reaching US$570,000,000.

Whereas corporate groups in general branch off from a single business and form conglomerates,
the operating companies in our group stand on equal footing, with their independence secured.
The companies of UNIVA CAPITAL which are not directly engaged in business themselves provide support and coordination from a global perspective.
Their goal is to promote the integration of human capital and knowledge capital across firms, whether in the same or different businesses,
thereby increasing financial capital and helping the group become more resilient and powerful.

UNIVA means “Unite the Value”

In other words, UNIVA CAPITAL Group is a corporate group uniting the values of each of its operating companies.

Philosophy

UNIVA Way

Capitalism based on co-creation Our aim in forming the group and building cooperative relationships is not “co-existence.” By combining and refining our strengths, we co-create new value.

People-focused management Our people are our most important asset. In evaluating our people we focus on two dimensions vital for creating new value: action instead of connection alone and tackling the unknown instead of remaining stuck in existing routines. We aim to transform each individual’s potential (Energy) into Synergy.

Global ambitions As a global enterprise, we must think freely and act flexibly, unhindered by existing norms and national or cultural differences. Diversity is our strength.

戦略

Joining UNIVA CAPITAL Group

Our objective is to maximize group capital, not buy-outs.

To maximize group capital, we acquire majority equity stakes in firms joining the group, share risk and participate in their management. Mergers and acquisitions are a means to build relationships where we can work closely together.

Participating in management requires a shared vision.
Differences in vision make it impossible to co-create and develop synergies with the other group companies, engage in joint problem-solving, and grow all our companies.

Effective participation requires a shared understanding of common goals and strategies.
To us the directors and employees of all group companies are NAKAMA (Comrades).
"NAKAMA" is a Japanese term that means that we work, sweat, and grow together through relationships built on mutual understanding.

Without such mutual understanding, the group creates no synergies. That is why the UNIVA CAPITAL Group does not engage in hostile takeovers.
