Our corporate group conducts Operating Lease Business as our primary business, in which we create and sell unique financial instruments (JOL: Japanese Operating Lease) to our investors that consist of SME's all over Japan, through a nationwide network of financial institutions, including banks and securities companies, and tax and accounting firms.
In addition to the operating lease business, we provide comprehensive solution services that include tackling challenges such as shortage of human resources and successors in SME's and financing and strategic planning support for sustainable growth.
Operating Lease Business
The subsidiaries JP Lease Products & Services and JLPS Holding Ireland Limited, which have abundant experience and achievements, are collaborating in the operating lease business, focusing on aircraft as well as ships and shipping containers.
We provide a variety of one-stop services, such as "lease orders," "asset management," "creation of a portfolio of investment products, Japanese Operating Leases (JOL, JOLCO)," "sales to investors," and "disposal management such as aircraft sales".
Renewable Energy Business
We started developing and operating solar power plants in 2014. As of the end of December 2020, we are operating 28 power plants nationwide, with a total power generation output (solar cell base) of 75.8 MW.
The subsidiary JP Lease Products & Services established and sold the first solar power generation business fund in 2014. By the end of December 2020, it sold 22 solar power generation business funds of 12.2 billion yen.
Parts out & Conversion Business
We offer services that provide exit strategies for leased aircraft through our parts-out and conversion businesses to ensure the stable distribution of the returns to our aircraft operating lease investors for the lease duration. These services are mainly provided through Vallair Capital SAS, an MRO company that is an equity-method affiliate.
Private Equity Business
Since August 2015, we have invested in SME's and are taking on new challenges together with investee companies.
We will think and work together with executives and employees who have a strong will to expand and reform their business to solve management issues and support growth.
M&A Advisory Business
In our M&A advisory business, we provide comprehensive, high-value-added advisory services to our clients, both listed and unlisted companies, including sales, acquisitions, privatizations, and turnarounds, when we believe it is an effective means of implementing their business strategies.
Agri & Bio Business
We provide comprehensive consulting services regarding the financial, human resources, and technical aspects from the perspective of companies that intend to sell for reasons such as difficulties related to business succession. We will support the creation of a sustainable management foundation by utilizing the network of SME's nationwide we obtained through the operating lease business and matching business partners such as local banks, Shinkin banks, securities companies, tax and accounting firms.
Our subsidiary Nihon Securities Journal publishes "Nihon Securities Journal" and the website "Nihon Securities Journal Digital." Nihon Securities Journal, which is the only national newspaper specializing in securities and finance, has the longest history in Japan and has existed since before the establishment of the Tokyo Stock Exchange.
