Nisso Pronity (‘company’) is a relatively small Japanese operator engaged in the businesses of metal processing (69% of revenues), rubber processing (20%), and construction (11%).
Its metal processing segment is primarily used to manufacture solar cell array support mounts for fireproof panels – thereby benefiting from increasing demand for renewable energy – specifically, the increase in construction of distribution warehouses (which mount solar panels) arising from the expansion of the e-commerce market for merchandise sales.
Sales in this segment fell significantly in the last twelve months due to lack of growth in sales of fireproof panels and decrease in large scale projects. Nevertheless, the orders received and backlog were higher than last year.
Further, the company has increased its ownership of a construction company (now a subsidiary) in the building hardware and metals fitting business as part of management plans to diversify in related fields (resulting in goodwill of 257m).
