Aucfan operates Media, Marketplace, and Solution businesses using the largest database of online transactions in Japan, gathered from major Japanese online auction websites. In the Media business it earns membership fees from providing auction data to paying members of the website (premium memberships typically cost JPY980 per month), and revenues from ads placed on the website. In the Marketplace business the company earns commissions on transactions conducted on its B2B e-commerce website for manufacturers, wholesalers, and retailers. In the Solution business, revenues come from providing one-time or ongoing support for businesses.

We interview management for hours, asking exhaustive questions to uncover the essence of the business.

We pinpoint strengths and weaknesses, and discuss strategy. Our aim is to make deep knowledge about the company readily available, saving investors time and enabling dialogue.

Our Research

We start our coverage with a substantial core report. We then continuously update this report to reflect earnings, newsflow, and any material developments. We interview the management quarterly to help you stay on top of the story.

Our report is an authoritative Owner’s Manual of the company—a vital piece in the investor’s toolbox.
