and make it a wholly owned subsidiary

We, MICWARE CO., LTD., are pleased to announce that MICWARE acquires HI CORPORATION and make it a wholly owned subsidiary on March 1, 2021, further strengthen and develop the in-vehicle software development business operation.


Under the current situation where the entire automobile industry is said to be in the "era of revolution once in 100 years", companies related to the industry are moving to CASE (connected, autonomous, shared, electric). We are boldly continuing to take on the challenge of developing new technologies and services to respond to these issues and form a future mobility society.

Against this background, we have acquired all shares of HI CORPORATION and made a wholly owned subsidiary.
MICWARE has been consistently engaged in the development of in-vehicle software since its establishment in 2003, and HI CORPORATION, which possesses advanced embedded technology development capabilities and achievements, will work more closely to achieve this. We are confident that we will be able to provide our customers with new technologies and services that have increased added value.

In the future, MICWARE will continue to make the best use of the achievements, experience, and expertise of in-vehicle software development and abundant human resources with advanced technology. We will strive to develop new technologies for the formation of a mobility society that enriches people's lives and create new services that make people's outings "convenient," "fun," and "safe."
