Ongoing Net Decline in Parent Subsidiary (Mr. Nishiyama at Nomura)

Fewer than 300 listed subsidiaries with listed parents for first time since end-FY98 — Based on Toyo Keizai major shareholder data, we estimate that 298 companies were listed subsidiaries with listed parents as of end-FY12 H1 (end-September 2012). This represents a net decrease of eight from 304 as of end-FY11 (end-March 2012) (Figure 1). The number has fallen below 300 for the first time in the 13 and a half years since end-FY98, when there were 281.

Main reason for decline is delisting on conversion to wholly owned subsidiary.
