NEC Corporation Risks and Challenges

The NEC Group’s business is dependent, to a significant extent, on the Japanese market. The NEC Group's consolidated revenue to customers in Japan accounted for 76.5% of its total revenue in the fiscal year ended March 31, 2021.

The markets for the products and services that the NEC Group offers are characterized by rapidly changing technology, evolving technical standards, changes in customer preferences, and the frequent introduction of new products and services. The development and commercialization of new technologies and the introduction of new products and services will often make existing products and services obsolete or unmarketable. The NEC Group’s competitiveness in the future will depend at least in part on its ability to: ● Keep pace with rapid technological developments and maintain technological leadership, primarily in the fields of AI, IoT, biometrics and cybersecurity technology; ● Enhance existing products and services; ● Develop and manufacture innovative products that meet customers’ needs in a timely and cost-effective manner; ● Utilize or adjust to new products, services, and technologies;

NEC Corporation Ecosystem, Partners, Resellers and SI

The NEC Group has entered into a number of long-term strategic alliances with leading industry participants, both to develop new technologies and products and to manufacture existing and new products. In June 2020, NEC agreed with Rakuten Mobile, Inc. to jointly develop a fully virtualized standalone 5G core network. Furthermore, NEC, in the same month, agreed with Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corporation ("NTT Corporation") on a capital and business alliance aimed at joint research, development and global expansion of 5G and various ICT products.

In August 2020, Netcracker Technology and Juniper Networks launched a joint solution that facilitates the end-to-end management of LAN/WLAN/WAN networks with automated service provisioning and workflows, AI-driven insight and full lifecycle management from client to cloud.
