[Sagawa Global Logistics] Conclusion of a business collaboration agreement concerning logistics services at Shanghai "JAPAN TOWN"(5/22/2012)

On April 21, 2012, Sagawa Global Logistics Co., Ltd., which belongs to the SG Holdings Group and operates international logistics businesses, entered into a business collaboration agreement with Shanghai Sanmao International Network Living Shopping Square Trade Co., Ltd. for providing logistics services under contract at Shanghai International Network Living Shopping Square/Japanese Goods Experience Hall ("JAPAN TOWN" scheduled to be opened in December 2012), which is under construction in Shanghai, China.

The Internet shopping market has been rapidly growing in China, but a variety of problems related to the quality of goods, services and delivery has been occurring at the same time. Meanwhile, there are some Japanese suppliers who have been studying expanding their sales channels in China, saying that they have difficulty in increasing sales in China using only the Internet mail-order model and face many barriers when setting up a local subsidiary to open bricks-and-mortar stores. To solve these problems, Shanghai Sanmao Enterprise (Group) Co., Ltd. ("A" shares listed on the Shanghai Stock Exchange) has been working on China's first International Mail Order Industrial Park Zone Development Project in Baoshan District, Shanghai, with the support of the Shanghai People's Government and Baoshan People's Government. The project is designed to offer "quality assurance," "safety and security" and "services" to clear bottlenecks in the fast-growing Chinese market by providing platforms not only for Japanese but also for foreign companies to market goods and operate and expand businesses in China without any anxieties.

Sagawa Global Logistics will assist Japanese suppliers to expand their sales channels in China by providing complete logistics services at "JAPAN TOWN", a part of the project, using the collective strength of the SG Holdings Group including the network of Sagawa Express in Japan, SHANGHAI DAZHONG SAGAWA LOGISTICS CO., LTD. ("SHANGHAI DAZHONG SAGAWA"), a local subsidiary in Shanghai that operates home-delivery services, and SILOX SHANGHAI CO., LTD. ("SAGAWA SILOX SHANGHAI") that operates a logistics center in Waigaoqiao Free Trade Zone, Shanghai.
