Strategic Shareholdings

Last updated : December 27, 2017

NTT does not hold so-called "cross-held shares" to create stable shareholders, and has no plans to hold them in the future.
However, as one of its business policies, the Company pursues collaboration and open innovation with partners in various industries to contribute to medium- to long-term improvement in corporate value. Based on this policy, we own shares of partner companies as necessary.
With respect to exercising voting rights in relation to strategic shareholdings, NTT exercises voting rights acquired through share ownership, as it sees fit, from the perspectives of sustainable growth of the companies NTT invests in and improving corporate value for both NTT and the companies.
