subsidiaries. One, Fujitsu Public Solutions Limited, will focus on the public
sector business, while the other, Fujitsu Advanced Solutions Tokai Limited,
will concentrate its business efforts on financial institutions. As a systems
engineering group handling social infrastructure, the new organization is
designed to further strengthen systems development capabilities.
