Sydney, Australia – 3 July, 2019

Kyocera Document Solutions Inc. (hereinafter "the company," President: Norihiko Ina) today announced that it has acquired Huon IT Pty Ltd (hereinafter "Huon IT"), an Australian-based provider of ICT services including IT infrastructure design and maintenance.

Based in Sydney, Australia, Huon IT has 30 years of experience in offering ICT services while maintaining high customer satisfaction.

In recent years, the document solutions market in Australia has been moving from MDS (Managed Document Services)* to comprehensive services, which includes IT infrastructure development and management in addition to MDS. As a response to this market transformation, the company will integrate Huon IT's expertise in providing ICT services to a wide range of customers with its local sales company's (Kyocera Document Solutions Australia) operations to strengthen the business in the Australian market and enhance comprehensive service capabilities, thereby offering higher quality and expansion of services to its customers.

In conjunction with Huon's ICT services, Kyocera also plans to offer its ECM (Enterprise Content Management) solutions, which automates and streamlines workflows, thus becoming capable of providing comprehensive, thorough document solutions to its customers. Based on this, the company will strengthen its comprehensive services, not only including MDS and ICT services but also ECM solutions, and aim to grow its business as the Kyocera Document Solutions Group.

Mr. Ryosuke Okochi, Managing Director of Kyocera Document Solutions Australia "The acquisition of Huon IT is part of Kyocera's ongoing strategy to support Australian businesses as we drive change and expand our own business. We are confident that we can add value to our customers with expanding our product offering and a new choice in ICT services.  Huon IT services will integrate into our business offering with their high performance ICT solutions that complement our own values and commitment to our customers. We are extremely excited to welcome Huon IT to Kyocera Document Solutions."
