On December 26, 2019, the TechnoPro, Inc. board of directors resolved to approve the absorption-type merger of consolidated subsidiary TechnoPro, Inc. and TechnoPro subsidiary (TechnoPro Holdings sub-subsidiary) ON THE MARK Co., Ltd.
As this is an absorption-type merger between wholly owned subsidiaries, certain disclosures and details have been omitted.
1. Purpose of Merger
ON THE MARK became a member of the TechnoPro Group on March 4, 2016. In the nearly four years since, ON THE MARK has collaborated with TechnoPro in sales activities, participated in the optimal assignment of engineering professionals, and created synergies in numerous other ways. As ON THE MARK and TechnoPro have built a stronger relationship over time, the group has come to believe that creating an environment which seamlessly integrates the human resources of TechnoPro and the contract services development expertise of ON THE MARK at a higher level without artificial organizational barriers will contribute to the realization of the type of high added value services defined in the TechnoPro Group medium-term management plan. The TechnoPro board of directors approved the merger of the two companies based on this belief.
