NTT DoCoMo to simplify structure

11 Sep 2007

Japanese cellco NTT DoCoMo plans to merge eight subsidiaries by March 2009 to cut costs, business daily Nikkei reports, without naming sources. To eliminate redundancies, DoCoMo will streamline back-office operations and work out a national sales promotion strategy, Nikkei said. The eight wholly owned divisions, employing around 6,000 staff, include NTT DoCoMo Hokkaido and NTT DoCoMo Tohoku.
