The semi-annual meeting of the board of Toppan Moore, a joint venture between Toppan Printing of Japan and Moore Corporation of Canada, took place in Tokyo. With sales exceeding US$1 billion, Toppan Moore was a leader in the Japanese business forms industry and widely considered one of the most successful international joint ventures in Japan. While pleased with the venture's recent results, the issue for the board members was how to ensure continued prosperity.
The focus of the case is on deciding upon the form of the future relationship which should exist between the Canadian partner and the actual Joint Venture company. This international management case is best positioned after students have received a thorough grounding in the internationalization process.
