TOKYO, Japan – March 25, 2019 – ORIX Corporation (“ORIX”) announced today that it has agreed and signed a contract to transfer all ORIX Living Corporation (“ORIX Living”) shares held by the ORIX Group to Daiwa Securities Group Inc. After carrying out the necessary procedures, ORIX plans to complete the share transfer in the first half of fiscal 2019.

1. Reason for the share transfer
ORIX Living is engaged in the development and operation of the GOOD TIME LIVING of private nursing home and the Platesia of private residential senior home. Since its establishment in 2005, ORIX Living has rolled out its facilities primarily in the Tokyo metropolitan area and the Kansai area; at present, it manages a total of 2,726 rooms in 29 GOOD TIME LIVING facilities and 3 Platesia facilities. ORIX Living seeks to improve the quality of its services by raising the everyday living functions of each of its residents through “private care that supports independence.”

Daiwa Securities Group, whose holding company is Daiwa Securities Group Inc., was established in 1902. It is a general securities group whose core business is securities. In recent years, Daiwa Securities Group has established a structure suited to the needs of an aging society. Among its activities are the deployment of “Anshin Planner” consultants, who specialize in catering to the needs of the elderly, at its sales offices; it also established the Nippon Healthcare Investment Corporation, which is Japan’s first-ever listed real estate investment trust (REIT) dedicated to healthcare facilities such as hospitals, private nursing homes and other facilities for the elderly.

ORIX believes that fusing ORIX Living’s development and operational knowhow with Daiwa Securities Group’s customer base, networks, and other resources will lead to the establishment of more stable business growth; for this reason, ORIX has decided to transfer its shares in ORIX Living.
