Fast Retailing Co., Ltd. (FR) and Mitsubishi Corporation (MC) have concluded an agreement to establish a joint venture with a view to developing UNIQLO's business in Thailand.

Since expanding into Asia in 2002, UNIQLO, a brand of the FR Group, has since expanded its network of stores to China, Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia and Taiwan. Through February 2011 UNIQLO was operating 132 stores across the region. MC has been developing a wide range of businesses in Thailand since 1954 and has invested in approximately 100 companies in many fields including those of machinery, metals and food.

Through the establishment of this joint venture, both companies will leverage their combined expertise to launch the first UNIQLO Thailand store in the fall of 2011, and to subsequently develop more stores in the country.

FAST RETAILING CO LTD. and its mainstay UNIQLO operation continue to enjoy growth by offering high-quality casual wear at reasonable prices. We have done this by establishing a SPA manufacturer/retailer business model that enables us to control all stages of the supply process--from product design to the procurement of materials, quality control, inventory adjustments and end sales.
