ZOOM CORPORATION goes public, listing on the Tokyo Stock Exchange


March 29, 2017 —  Zoom Corporation announced its successful listing on the Tokyo Stock Exchange (code 6694) on March 28.

Founded in Tokyo’s Akihabara district in 1983, Zoom started as a third party developer for other brands. Seven years later Zoom developed its own proprietary DSP technology which eventually led to the creation of its first product, the innovative 9002 Multi-Effects Processor for guitar. In recent years, the Zoom brand has grown in worldwide popularity not only among musicians, but also among sound designers and video makers for their ever-evolving series of portable Handy Recorders. Zoom recently introduced its line of professional field recorders, the F8 and F4, used in sound recording for film and broadcast.

“Our listing in Tokyo represents a new beginning for Zoom in which we will build upon our success in the development of sound processing, and our continuation to expand with new and original products for the wider market of audio and video content creation,” says co-founder and CEO Masa Iijima.
