We made our overseas debut in 1978, when we established a presence in Taiwan. Today, our overseas business encompasses operations in 12 countries and territories. A distinguishing feature of our overseas security services is that we offer on-line security systems with SECOM-style services customized to reflect local needs and sensibilities. The services we provide overseas, which are of the same high quality as those provided in Japan, continue to earn praise from overseas customers, as a result of which market acceptance is increasing steadily.
