JGC to Merge Domestic Subsidiaries

  JGC Project Services and Nikki Construction

Yokohama, Japan –JGC has decided to merge its consolidated subsidiaries JGC Project Services Co., Ltd. and Nikki Construction Co., Ltd., effective from April 1st, 2011.
JGC Project Services will be the surviving entity, and Nikki Construction will be dissolved. The new company will commence business operations under the name JGC Plant Solutions Co., Ltd.

Both companies are wholly-owned domestic engineering subsidiaries of JGC Corporation. JGC Project Services has been providing EPC and maintenance services for chemical plants, petroleum refineries, and offsite/utility facilities. Nikki Construction has been conducting piping construction and maintenance work for chemical plants and petroleum refineries.

As part of its recently announced new medium-term management plan "New Horizon 2015," (effective from 2011 until 2015), JGC stressed a need for increasing its competitiveness in the realm of EPC, which constitutes its core line of business. The merger of the two domestic EPC subsidiaries is aimed at strengthening JGC's competitiveness in the EPC arena.

Purpose of Merger
1. Increase cost competitiveness
  By pooling management resources, the new company will achieve a higher level of cost competitiveness through a stronger operational base.
2. Increase depth and breadth of business operations
  The new company will deepen its involvement in both the engineering work undertaken by JGC Project Services and the construction work undertaken by Nikki Construction, while simultaneously broadening its scope to effectively meet its clients' ever-changing needs.
3. Expand overseas
  By forming a network with JGC's overseas EPC subsidiaries, it is hoped the new company will help strengthen JGC's increasingly expanding overseas market.
