Japan Post Holdings Co., Ltd. (日本郵政株式会社 Nippon Yū-sei Kabushiki-gaisha) is a Japanese publicly traded conglomerate headquartered in Kasumigaseki, Chiyoda, Tokyo. It is mainly engaged in postal and logistics business, financial window business, banking business and life insurance business. The company offers letters and goods transportation services, stamp sales, deposits, loans, and insurance products.
On November 4, 2015, Japan Post Holding (TYO: 6178) was listed on the Tokyo Stock Exchange as part of a "triple IPO" (Initial Public Offering) with shares offered as well in Japan Post Bank (TYO: 7182) and Japan Post Insurance (TYO: 7181). About 10% of the shares in each company was offered.
On April 25, 2017, Japan Post Holdings said it would have a Y40bn ($360m) loss for its first full financial year as a listed company, due to losses from Toll Holdings, which it controversially acquired in 2015.
In September 2017, the Japanese government announced its sale of $12 billion worth of Japan Post Holdings Co. Ltd. stock. It was the first sale since the 2015 IPO of the postal company and its two units, Japan Post Bank Co. Ltd. and Japan Post Insurance Co. Ltd.. That sale also raised $12 billion, which was used for the repair and reconstruction of places that were destroyed by an earthquake and tsunami in 2011.
The group operates via four main divisions:
- Japan Post, which deals with mail delivery and runs the post offices.
- Japan Post Bank, which deals with banking functions.
- Japan Post Insurance, which provides life insurance.
- Toll Holdings, which provides transportation and logistics
