Meeting demand for metals with the best partners and technology
at the right time in the market
Kaizen's strong business ties with the trading houses of Japan provide us with a core mandate of acquiring early-stage mineral projects in a low point of the commodity cycle. With the assistance of our Japanese strategic partners, we build value by moving these projects forward to ultimately feed the Japanese industrial complex with the commodities they need.
Shortly after we formed in December 2013 through a combination of Concordia Resource Corp. and assets acquired from HPX TechCo, ITOCHU Corporation bought into Kaizen in February 2014 for $5.1 million to have Kaizen acquire distressed assets. ITOCHU is a major Japanese trading house with a market capitalization of approx. $20 billion and over 100,000 employees in 65 countries. More information on ITOCHU's comprehensive collaboration with Kaizen is available here.
