Clarivate Analytics selected "2016 Top 100 Global Innovators" by utilizing strict and objective data compiled from its value-added patent citation database "Derwent World Patents Index (DWPI)," which is the world's largest one in this category, its intellectual property intelligence platform "Thomson Innovation," and the company's original basis for evaluation. In the screening process of the award, Clarivate Analytics uses scientific and objective methodology involving four main criteria of "patent volume," "application-to-grant success," "globalization" and "citation influence." This time, Clarivate Analytics commended SDK's high performance in "globalization" and "citation influence," and rated the latter especially high. (In the screening process, Clarivate Analytics analyzed various organizations' patent activity records for the last five years. As for "globalization," meanwhile, records for the past three years were analyzed.)

Comment by Mr. Kohei Morikawa, President and CEO, Showa Denko K.K.: "We are very proud of receiving this award for two consecutive years. I think we received this award as outside commendation for our wide-ranging technologies we accumulated through many years of research and development efforts. Now, we are striving to create new values through integration of various technologies. We will continue developing individualized technologies, aiming to make ourselves a corporate group that leads the chemical industry."

The Showa Denko Group has designated its intellectual property strategy as an important part of its overall business strategies, and has been striving to establish its competitive advantages through formation of patent networks that cover key industries and protect major products we develop. The Group will continue promoting its intellectual property strategy through close integration with business and R&D strategies.
