Jiro Yasu presented his in-depth investment thesis on Agro-Kanesho (Japan: 4955) at Asian Investing Summit 2016.

Agro-Kanesho is an agrochemical manufacturer in Japan with a strong product lineup for soil treatment. Although the company has been growing nicely and improving its profit margin, it still trades at slightly above net cash. We believe the company will continue to grow by gaining market share, introducing new products, and exploring acquisition opportunities. Also, we believe global consolidation in the industry, Japanese government policies on agriculture reform and TPP may be tail winds for the company. Lastly, the company is improving disclosure and shareholder returns. We believe it is an investment opportunity with a great risk reward profile.
