1. Outline of the Competitive IT Strategy Company Stock Selection program

Rapid advances in IT are transforming industrial structures and business models at an unprecedented pace. For Japanese companies to succeed in international competition amid this environment, it is not enough to engage in defensive IT investment for the purpose of increasing the efficiency and convenience of internal operations, as has been the case until now; it is also vital for companies to take strategic and competitive IT investment that will contribute to improving mid- to long-term corporate value and fortifying competitiveness.

Against this backdrop, METI and TSE have been jointly selecting outstanding companies that have been conducting a competitive IT strategy as “competitive IT strategy companies” out of TSE-listed companies, and have been introducing such selected companies as attractive companies to investors who put emphasis on improving corporate value in the medium- to long-term.
