Nidec Corp. Tops Institutional Investor's Inaugural All-Japan Executive Team 
NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 05/20/13 --  Nidec Corp., a Japanese
maker of small precision motors for computer equipment, appliances
and autos, has the top-ranked management among major public companies
in Japan, according to an exclusive survey by Institutional Investor. 
Shigenobu Nagamori, the company's chief executive officer, is the
best CEO in the Electronics/Components sector, according to both
buy-side and sell-side analysts who voted in II's All-Japan Executive
Team survey.  
Complete results can be found at Institutional Investor's website. 
Nidec's CFO, Masuo Yoshimatsu, wins similar recognition as the
sector's best chief financial officer, and buy-side analysts rate
Nidec's investor relations team and its chief, Masahiro Nagayasu, as
the best in the sector. Those scores make Nidec the Most Honored
Company in Japan, according to the ranking. 
To determine the ranking, Institutional Investor asked buy-side
analysts, portfolio managers and sell-side analysts to identify the
best chief executive officers, chief financial officers, investor
relations professionals and corporate IR teams at Japanese companies
across 26 industry sectors. 
Auto parts maker Denso Corp. and giant lender Mizuho Financial Group
rank just behind Nidec on the Most-Honored list, followed by
automaker Nissan Motor Co., telecom operator KDDI Corp. and drug
company Astellas Pharma. 
Other companies near the top of this year's Most Honored Companies in
Japan ranking include Tokio Marine Holdings, SoftBank Corp., Hoya
Corp., Sony Corp., Panasonic Corp., Hitachi, Komatsu, Mitsui Fudosan
Co. and East Japan Railway Co. 
The new ranking comes out at a time of heightened interest in Japan.
The reflationary policies of Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and the new
Bank of Japan governor, Haruhiko Kuroda, have driven prices sharply
higher on the Tokyo Stock Exchange and contributed to a growth spurt
in the economy. The new situation gives Japanese companies the best
opportunity in years to expand.  
The All-Japan Executive Team is based on the votes of 387 buy-side
analysts at 223 investment firms and 245 sell-side analysts at 25
firms. Full results can be found at our web site,
