It is now a worldwide business with a network of 16 international corporations, and more than 3,000 workers around the world. It’s annual revenues of $2 billion, and its own stock price was up by 50% within the previous year using the growing sales in the auto industry. Takizaki has further fostered its operations after he became the largest investor in Just Systems, among the main software development companies in Japan.
