DIMENSION Corporation (headquarters: Minato-ku, Tokyo; President and CEO: Takamitsu Miyaso; hereafter, DIMENSION) announces its participation as a shareholder in BATONZ (headquarters: Chuo-ku, Tokyo; CEO: Yuichi Kanze; hereafter, BATONZ), which operates the comprehensive M&A support platform “BATONZ”.

BATONZ is a company dedicated to supporting M&A with the vision of “creating a society where anyone can easily and freely engage in M&A anywhere.” Since its establishment in 2018, it has been facilitating the matching of various businesses with third parties to connect value enterprises to the next generation.

The “BATONZ” platform provides cutting-edge M&A support services that combine expert assistance with digital transformation (DX), making it the No. 1* comprehensive M&A support platform in Japan in terms of user numbers and successful deals.

Through our discussions with the management team at BATONZ, we recognized the high communication skills, sense of responsibility, and strong execution capabilities of company CEO Kanze and his team. We believe that the Internet-based comprehensive M&A support platform developed by a team that maintains such high standards will become a valuable social infrastructure.
