About Okato Holdings,Inc.
In April 2005, Okato Shoji Co., Ltd. shifted to holding company structure by a corporate split and separation of its Commodities Futures Business. The company changed its name to "Okato Holdings, Inc." and established Okato Business Service Co., Ltd.  The new company expands its existing Commodities Futures Business to improve profitability.  Under such circumstances, the company determined that it would need the proactive and flexible management structure while further clarifying the accountability for each business unit.  After the change, the company maintains its position as a public company and is expected to continue to maximize the corporate value by supervising the whole group operations and executing flexible strategies. In June 2005, we have also established a firm that specializes in online trading. Through these measures, we intend to transform our group into an integrated financial services conglomerate.
