Fujitsu Strengthens Systems Support and Operational Services
Organizational Realignment Aims to Enhance
Full Lifecycle Support for Customers' IT Systems
Tokyo, May 17, 2004 - Fujitsu Limited today announced that it is reorganizing and strengthening its systems support and operational services businesses in Japan. The move aims to provide enhanced levels of support to meet the increasingly sophisticated IT needs of its customers and to further leverage operational services - an area in which high growth is expected - to expand Fujitsu's business. As part of this initiative, the boards of directors of Fujitsu Limited and Fujitsu Support and Service Inc. (Fsas) - currently a majority-owned publicly listed company - have signed an agreement for an exchange of shares whereby Fsas will become a wholly owned Fujitsu subsidiary. The realignment will enable the Fujitsu group to provide customers in Japan with seamless, one-stop delivery of services covering the full spectrum of the IT system lifecycle. It will also enhance Fujitsu's ability to proactively anticipate and continuously propose appropriate solutions to meet customer needs, further strengthening its commitment to providing IT solutions from a customer-centric perspective.
