About Us


Our Mission

Analogica KK is a unique independent advisory. Our goal is to provide customers with a clear and unbiased approach to strategy which is not merely contingent on success fees. At Analogica KK we feel that preventing a poor acquisition is just as important as making the right one succeed. After all the strategies implemented today indeed reveal themselves many years down the line. We make the clear distinction whether the merger or acquisition local or international.


Stronger corporate governance also enhances the ability for companies to raise capital and attract sustainable long term strategic shareholders. Our services also provide an independent perspective of how to achieve a better mix of investors and drive behaviours to better share price performance. We also provide introduction services to facilitate the selection of independent directors to the boards of Japanese listed entities.
