In 1999 Goldman Sachs continued to play a central role in one of the largest privatizations ever, assisting the Ministry of Finance of Japan to reduce its ownership position in NTT. In the most recent series of privatization offerings, we acted as Joint Global Coordinator for the fifth sale of approximately $15 billion of NTT common stock. The offering was the first after NTT’s reorganization, and we worked with them on communicating their business goals and prospects to investors in Japan and around the globe. Significant interest was generated worldwide, with the transaction being heavily oversubscribed. The offering was received extremely well in the marketplace and was reputed globally for its high success.

  • Goldman Sachs acted as the Joint Global Coordinator for the $15 billion fifth sale of NTT stock.
  • Goldman Sachs acted as advisor to NTT in formulating and communicating its new structure and business strategy to investors globally.
