NIB Research has entered its 7th year of operation and we would like to thank our clients, business partners and shareholders for their ongoing support. Furthermore, we are extremely grateful for cooperation from the management and IR teams of listed Japanese companies for accommodating our various client requests which resulted in continued strong demand for our proprietary research and IR interpreting / support services.
