1. Why we need to transform
Our operating companies – NTT Communications, Dimension Data, NTT DATA,
and NTT Security –have continued to evolve and grow their respective
capabilities. NTT Group has also been driving collaboration across these
operating companies with great success. To date, these activities have
resulted in collective revenue outside of Japan of U.S. $20 billion.
The global market is changing fast. We’ve seen rapid progress in technology innovation; disruption caused by new business models, and the aggressive expansion of innovative competitors. These factors have led to clients’ increasing demand for digital transformation. We believe it’s an opportunity for us to create new value and increase our presence in the global market.
2. What we plan to do
(1) Establish a new holding company focused on global business
We’re establishing a new global holding company under NTT Corporation by the third quarter of the fiscal year ending March 31, 2019. This entity will be called NTT, Inc., and Jun Sawada, current CEO of NTT Corporation, will also serve as its CEO. Estimated operating revenue of NTT, Inc. is approximately U.S. $38 billion with U.S. $20 billion already coming from outside Japan (consolidated figures, based on the fiscal year ending March 31, 2018).
By the third quarter of the fiscal year ending March 31, 2019, NTT Communications, Dimension Data, NTT DATA, NTT Security, and NTTi3 will be transferred to NTT, Inc. and will align together under its new leadership.
While making NTT Group more competitive and profitable, our global governance will also benefit from embracing and integrating our people’s diverse talents, skills, and management experience in global markets. The new structure will leverage their expertise to its maximum potential.
In addition, by the second quarter of the fiscal year ending March 31, 2020, we’ll consider integrating these businesses – except NTT DATA – into two new businesses. One will look after our global business; the other will cater for our domestic business in Japan.
NTT DATA will continue to collaborate with other companies in the Group while retaining its present management structure, status as a listed company, management autonomy and brand.
(2) Expanding our global R&D capability
Further steps will include creating a new global innovation fund: NTT Venture Capital, L.P. (a limited partnership), which will help us evolve our global innovation. With this new fund, we’ll activate investment in high-growth areas such as digital technology.
We’ll also intensify our R&D activities in global markets by using a global network of experts from advanced academic research institutions and venture-capital communities around the world.
