The Nikkei (formally known as The Nihon Keizai Shinbun)
Nikkei Inc.(株式会社日本経済新聞社,Kabushiki-Gaisha Nihon Keizai Shinbun Sha?, literally Japan Economic Times Company) is one of the largest media corporations in Japan. Nikkei specializes in publishing financial, business and industry news. Its main news publications include:

Nikkei sells these newspapers around the world, in their original languages and in translation. It also makes many of its Japanese articles available in English through wire services, an English language website, and a licensing agreement with LexisNexis.
Nikkei also owns TV Tokyo and Nikkei CNBC, which provides coverage of the Japanese market during trading hours and rebroadcasts CNBC during off-hours and weekends.
The roots of the Nikkei started with an in-house newspaper department of Mitsui & Company in 1876 when it started publication of Chugai Bukka Shimpo (literally Domestic and Foreign Commodity Price Newspaper), a weekly market-quotation bulletin. The department was spun out as the Shokyosha in 1882. The paper became daily (except Sunday) in 1885 and was renamed Chugai Shogyo Simpo in 1889. It was merged with Nikkan Kogyo and Keizai Jiji and renamed Nihon Sangyo Keizai Shinbun in 1942. The paper changed its name to the Nihon Keizai Shinbun in 1946.[not verified in body]
The Nihon Keizai Shinbun is Nikkei's flagship publication and the world's largest financial newspaper, with a daily circulation exceeding 3 million. Nikkei 225, a stock market index for the Tokyo Stock Exchange, has been calculated by the newspaper since 1950.[not verified in body]
