 At Voltage Inc., we define "Art" as utilizing our competence in planning and creating highly original content and "Business" as developing a structure to continuously launch hit products in our aim to have many people enjoy the content.
 Our business consists of the core Mobile Content Business, involving planning, production, development and operation of fee-charged mobile content, the Mobile Commerce Business and Other Business.

 The characteristics of our businesses are as follows.


(1) Focused on theme of content of "Drama on Love and Challenge"

コンテンツテーマの絞り込み At Voltage Inc., we have focused on the theme of content to "Drama on Love and Challenge" and provide a wide range of story-based original content in categories including games, electronic books, videos, melodic ring tones and standby screen wallpapers.
 We define "Love" not only as a relationship between a male and a female but as any relationship between friends, a parent and a child, colleagues and others in which persons understand and support each other. "Challenge" includes efforts made to prove oneself, a friendly rivalry with a competitor and a challenge in something new. Voltage Inc. recognizes that these two concepts are the summary of happiness pursued by people in the modern age. By providing content with stories with leading characters striving to achieve a good balance between love and challenge, we work to support people in every drama on love and challenge that they encounter in their daily lives.

(2) Narrowed-down customer targets

 Voltage Inc. has narrowed down the target customer group to female users between the ages of 13 and 34 who often use mobile content. We divide this customer group into detailed segments by age and interest, and provide content that meets the needs in each segment in terms of interests or worries that users may have.

(3) Capturing users and continuity

 We capture users by periodically launching new sites, actively advertising in websites operated by other companies and in magazines for females, and taking other initiatives. For registered users, we distribute e-magazines and links to propose sites that suit the interests of users. By encouraging users to access other sites of the Company, we promote their continued use of Voltage sites.

 In the mobile commerce business, we promote synergistic effects in our overall business through producing original goods related to the content in our mobile content business, selling the goods in the mobile commerce site, packaging images and sound components distributed as content into DVDs and CDs in our other business category, and taking other initiatives.
The following illustrates the trends of the user population in our websites. The number of fee-paying members and that of free members represent the total derived by combining the number of members for each site. If a user is registered in more than one site, that user is counted as many times as he or she is registered.
