TOKYO -- October 31, 2013

Dentsu Inc. (TOKYO:4324) (ISIN:JP3551520004) (President & CEO: Tadashi Ishii;
Head Office: Tokyo; Capital: 74,609.81 million yen) announced today the
establishment of two new Dentsu Group companies, Promo Tec Synergy Sdn. Bhd.
in Malaysia and Promo Tec (Thailand) Co., Ltd. in Thailand. Both companies are
subsidiaries of Promo Tec Pte. Ltd., a company established in Singapore in
2011 as a subsidiary of Dentsu Tec Inc. (President & CEO: Hiroaki Hori; Head
Office: Tokyo; wholly owned subsidiary of Dentsu Inc.) to meet the increasing
sales promotion needs of clients across Asia.

The consumer market is expanding rapidly in Malaysia and Thailand, and
high-quality Japanese-style promotional services are in great demand. Recently
there has been a rapid increase in enquiries about store development, in-store
promotions and events, and it was determined that a specialist company that
can provide one-stop services from planning through to implementation is
required in both countries.

Promo Tec Pte. Ltd. was established in Singapore in October 2011 to spearhead
the Dentsu Group’s sales promotion business in Asia, and the subsequent
establishment of Promo Tec subsidiaries in Indonesia and India in March 2012
and a third subsidiary in Vietnam in June of this year has resulted in a
steady expansion of business. The two new additions bring the total number of
specialist promotional companies in the Asian region to six, and will further
boost awareness of the Promo Tec brand name across all the regional markets.

Going forward, Promo Tec Synergy and Promo Tec (Thailand) aim to position
themselves at an early stage as leading sales promotion specialists in the
same way as the four other companies that are already open for business. They
will work in close cooperation with Dentsu Asia, the Dentsu subsidiary which
oversees operations in the ASEAN and Oceania region under the umbrella of the
Group’s global operating unit Dentsu Aegis Network Ltd., as well as with Aegis
Media’s network in Asia. The new companies will provide clients in both
Malaysia and Thailand as well as in neighboring countries with fast and
effective solutions that address their diverse and expanding sales promotion
needs.

The impact of these transactions on Dentsu’s consolidated financial results
for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2014 is expected to be minimal.
