The Company is a long established and well-known multinational corporation, with a history spanning more than 165 years. It was founded in 1847 and was incorporated in 1903. Its headquarters are located in Saga, Japan. The Company is currently comprised of a group of 20 companies, undertaking business in over 40 countries, with a total workforce of 2,635 employees (as of February 28, 2011, consolidated basis).
The Company is considered to be one of the leading companies in the pharmaceutical industry. The net sales for the fiscal year ended February 28, 2011 were up to JPY131,184,000,000 (consolidated basis).
The Company has established a long term, sustainable vision for the development of its business and its strong internet presence, along with technologies such as the World Wide Web and email, are central to this development. This is also reflected by The Company's domain portfolio, of over 800 domains. The Company envisions that the .HISAMITSU TLD and the domain names registered under it will provide a great opportunity to interact online with current and potential customers and stakeholders.
The brand ʺHISAMITSUʺ is the name of The Company itself and is a well-known multinational corporate brand. This brand was established in 1847, and has continuously been used as the name of The Company. The Company has registered this corporate brand in over 180 countries and/or trademark jurisdictional regions. This corporate brand serves to clearly remind general customers of The Companyʹs goods and services.
The .HISAMITSU Registry will provide an Internet space, under the control of The Company, to allow for the distribution and exchange of information among The Company and its stakeholders by means of, but not limited to, websites, social networks, email and other technologies that will reside within the .HISAMITSU domain name space. In addition, ancillary services may be provided in relation to registration of domains within the TLD, including but not limited to website hosting, SEO, marketing and consulting services.
The Company initially intends to reserve all names within the TLD for itself, and to primarily use any of those domain names for promotional and navigational purposes relating to The Companyʹs online presence and/or provision of goods and services.
Eventually, though not likely for at least three years post-delegation, The Company anticipates the possibility that Affiliates could license the use of domains within the TLD from The Company. However, such licenses could only be made via contract which limits the use of the domain name to purposes specified by The Company. Such terms would be enforced via monitoring and quick action to mitigate any negative effects of any such abuse, if any. Licenses of the domain names could be revoked by The Company at any time, for any reason.
