The Dentsu Group Announces the Establishment of New Promo Tec Subsidiaries in Malaysia and Thailand to Further Expand Its Sales Promotion Network in Asia Business Wire 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.
