OKI (TOKYO:6703) today announced that the company has completed share purchase of the ATM business including banking, retail automation and services from Itautec S.A.- Grupo Itautec (Itautec). OKI has acquired 70% stake of the new company which has been established through Itautec’s company split.

OKI’s Mid-term Business Plan 2016 announced on November 12, 2013 sets expansion of overseas businesses as one of the most important management strategies. Within its ATM business, OKI’s cash-recycling ATM has a strong track record in China, Russia and Indonesia.

The division designs, develops, manufactures, sells and maintains automation equipment such as ATMs and other IT equipment.

“We are pleased to have completed the agreement with Itautec,” says Hideichi Kawasaki, President of OKI. “I am confident that the OKI-nurtured ATM business will continue to expand in Latin America by capitalizing on strengths of both companies. The establishment of OKI Brasil S.A demonstrates OKI’s commitment to grow its overseas business, at the same time, aim for top ATM market share by providing dedicated support through banking and retail automation services in Brazil. This will also enforce OKI’s future growth which is part of OKI’s Mid-term Business Plan.”
