Underwrites Convertible Preferred Shares

Development Bank of Japan Inc. (President: Minoru Murofushi) has underwritten $1.5 million in preferred shares in Global Equipment Services and Manufacturing Inc., a global provider of engineering services in the fields of semiconductors, liquid crystals, photovoltaic cells and health care. GES is to use the funds to build plant and equipment as the California-based firm expands its operations.

Employing large numbers of talented engineers from Vietnam, GES (President: Don Tran) uses sophisticated equipment for the manufacture of products ranging from semiconductors and liquid crystals to photovoltaic cells. It offers outsourcing services and also assigns engineers to client firms on a temporary basis, providing manufacturers with solutions which enable them to enjoy lower costs while developing their business worldwide.

GES is a young firm, but though established in July 2006 it already numbers many of the world’s top semiconductor makers among its clients. It is building a training center for engineers in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, to nurture the new talent it expects to need for future growth.

DBJ's participation in this project grew out of its anticipation of such growth, coupled with its belief that an investment in GES convertible preferred shares will boost that firm's creditworthiness and benefit Japanese companies as well.

DBJ is committed to supporting its clients' global endeavors, a stance which is clear from its corporate philosophy: 'Designing the future through innovative finance – Using creative financing techniques to resolve customer issues, DBJ Inc. will work with our customers to earn their trust and build a prosperous future.'

I have worked with GES on several high visibility projects. Their attention to detail, consistent professionalism and willingness to support our efforts makes our business relationship a good partnership. I look forward to working with GES on future projects.
