Tokyo, December 17, 2018 — ANEW Holdings Inc. (“ANEW HD”) has launched Sunkaku, LLC., a new joint venture by Sun Capital Management Corp. (“Sun Capital Management”) and ANEW HD’s US subsidiary ANEW Lifestyle, LLC. (“ANEW Lifestyle”) that will provide local OEM, logistics, sales solutions and total supply chain development for apparels, as well as offering financing solutions in North America.

Sunkaku’s Purpose of Establishment
Sun Capital Management and US-based ANEW Lifestyle jointly established “Sunkaku” to conduct investment businesses in the competitive US economy. With the global trade and customs situation becoming increasingly uncertain, we believe that “Made in U.S.A.” will become a key trend moving forward. By organically connecting the three pillars of North America, Japan and Asia, Sunkaku will support the growth of new brands and corporations.

About Sunkaku
Sunkaku will provide local OEM, logistics and sales solutions and establish a total supply chain that links each process, as well as offering financing solutions to companies that does business in North America. The services will be aimed towards small/mid-sized brands, manufactures and startups who are looking to expand and develop business in North America, but lack the required local sales network and a strong production/logistics base. Targets will include local North American companies, as well as East Asian companies (China, Taiwan, Korea, etc.) that aim to expand into North America. Sunkaku’s distinct feature is that, not only will it take on commissioned work from early-stage companies and emerging brands, but will also combine it with financing solutions necessary for business expansion and the development of a supply chain to connect each step of the process.

With regards to the sales network, Sankaku will use existing networks owned by supporting companies and expand the EC (including Amazon), platform and retail stores owned by ANEW Lifestyle, as well as supporting expansion of sales channels from North America to Japan and Asian territories. Furthermore, by leveraging ANEW Lifestyle’s strength in influencer marketing, Sunkaku plans to offer sales promotion services that would directly reach the consumers.
