Stock holdings[edit]

Overtaken as leader?[edit]

If Kirin was overtaken by Asahi as the leader in the Japanese beer market, why does Asahi Breweries claim that Asahi is 2nd largest brewery? Sources please. Dforest (talk) 18:23, 3 April 2008 (UTC)

Lion Breweries[edit]

As of Aug 2009, Kirin has not yet taken over Lion Breweries. The reference given is for the acquisition process, not the actual acquisition. See http://www.lion-nathan.co.nz/Investors/Kirin-Proposal.aspx Iam0g (talk) 10:17, 19 August 2009 (UTC)

Requested move 19 January 2015[edit]

The following is a closed discussion of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. Editors desiring to contest the closing decision should consider a move review. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the move request was: Moved as proposed. There's consensus on removing "limited" but not so much consensus on whether this article is about the company or the holdings. Leaving it as the company for now, since most prose pertains to that, and editors can reassess this at their leisure, and decide whether to fork an article for the holdings.

Kirin Company, LimitedKirin Company – (or perhaps to Kirin Holdings or Kirin Holdings Company, unless we create a separate article about the parent company). Per WP:NCCORP, the legal status suffix of a company is not normally included in the article title. --Relisted.  — Amakuru (talk) 13:17, 27 January 2015 (UTC)BarrelProof (talk) 22:13, 19 January 2015 (UTC)

I might suggest (drawing on the section below) moving this article to Kirin Holdings, which definitely incorporates everything shown here. The current article maps much more closely onto the Japanese article on the parent corporation/conglomerate as a whole. That would solve the Co./Ltd. issue as well. The redirects then become accurate but available for expansion into separate articles on the main beverage arms, etc., as necessary. As for the Japanese articles, they are at the equivalent of "Kirin (company)" and "Kirin Holdings". Dekimasuよ! 19:23, 20 January 2015 (UTC)
I don't disagree, but either way, I plan to eventually fork the article into two. Both the parent and the subsidiary are distinctly notable, and if this article is about the parent, it is not appropriate for it to have so much detail about one of its several subsidiaries (especially with relatively little information about its other subsidiaries). —BarrelProof (talk) 18:51, 27 January 2015 (UTC)

The above discussion is preserved as an archive of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on this talk page or in a move review. No further edits should be made to this section.

Holdings or not[edit]

The infobox says that "Kirin Company, Limited" is a subsidiary of "Kirin Holdings Company, Limited". But Wikipedia does not have a separate article about the Kirin Holdings Company. That name simply redirects back to this article. Does the Kirin Holdings Company have any other subsidiaries? Is Kirin Holdings really a meaningfully distinct entity, or is it basically the same thing as the Kirin Company? It seems like it would be nice for the article to be about the top-level entity instead of only some part of it. —BarrelProof (talk) 16:37, 20 January 2015 (UTC)

Digging further, I have found that Kyowa Hakko Kirin seems to be another subsidiary, and the subsidiaries seem to be traded separately on the Tokyo Stock Exchange. The other subsidiary is listed as a holding in this article, but the body of the article only discusses the beverages business. Since these subsidiaries are distinct businesses that are traded separately, I suspect that we should have a separate article about the parent, and list here only the parts of the company that are in the "Kirin Company, Limited" subsidiary. I strongly suspect that many of the other holdings that are listed in the article are also outside of the "Kirin Company, Limited" subsidiary, so the current article seems to be a rather ugly hybrid of a description of the holdings of the parent and the business of one of its subsidiaries. —BarrelProof (talk) 18:52, 20 January 2015 (UTC)
  • Difficult to say without a lot of research, generally holdings companies aren't very notable, and a lot of our articles on Asian companies are entangled in this way. In ictu oculi (talk) 00:00, 23 January 2015 (UTC)
