Tracks Hitachi Certification Professional (HCP) - Storage Foundation requirement Credential validity and recertification rules 2-tier assessment system combined with 4 levels of credentials
The new Hitachi Data Systems Certified Professional program features a 2-tier assessment structure in which low-stakes and high-stakes testing is used in combination with 4 credential levels. This gives IT professionals the most appropriate assessment method for their role and provides them with an upgrade path to accompany career growth, allowing candidates to validate their evolving expertise through exams of increased complexity.

1. Qualification-level testing
This level of testing leverages low-stakes exams typically used in 2 contexts:
Validation of broad and general expertise on subjects that evolve rapidly and for which a flexible assessment mechanism with short development cycles is needed.
Validation of basic and fundamental technical knowledge acquired academically, usually through course attendance, and for which entry-level testing is appropriate.
Typical Hitachi Data Systems qualification tests include 25 to 35 multiple-choice questions, may or may not be proctored and can be delivered as closed-book or open-book, either as end-of-course tests or in a stand-alone format.

Passing a qualification test leads to a Qualification credential. Two levels are available:
Associate: a recognition of expertise acquired in an academic format for a given subject area. This entry-level credential validates introductory-level technical knowledge.
Professional: a validation of general and foundational knowledge for a given subject area and aligned to a specific job role. Qualified professionals can perform general level work in selected subject areas.
2. Certification-level testing
Certification-level exams are designed to effectively and accurately validate that candidates have the skills, knowledge and abilities to perform tasks specifically identified as relating to their job in real-life situations. In order to pass certification exams, candidates are expected to use knowledge acquired through multiple means and experiences including various formal and informal training and learning methods.

Hitachi Data Systems certification exams typically include 55 to 60 multiple-choice questions. They are closed-book proctored exams delivered at Prometric test centers.

Passing a certification test leads to a Certification credential. Two levels are available:

Specialist: a validation that the candidate has the required technical knowledge, skills and abilities to perform advanced tasks in given subject areas. Certified specialists have multilayer technical skills, can handle complex solutions and are usually specialized in 1 or more areas.
Expert: a recognition of very high levels of technical knowledge, skills and abilities in several areas. Certified experts combine their solid experience in the IT industry with strong expertise and business acumen to deliver high-value services in complex environments.

Elevator Pitch

I am revising my rating for Hitachi, Ltd.'s (OTCPK:HTHIY) [6501:JP] stock from a Buy to a Hold. I previously touched on Hitachi's "revenue growth outlook" and "portfolio restructuring activities" in my earlier update for the company written on December 10, 2021.

I see Hitachi's shares as deserving of a Hold rating, instead of a Buy or Sell. On the negative side of things, Astemo, Hitachi's automotive systems business, needs to reinvent itself to be more resilient and adapt to changes in the auto market. On the positive side of things, GlobalLogic, a new business bought by Hitachi in 2021, is well-positioned to meet growing demand for digital transformation services, and the planned sale of its interests in some listed businesses can fund new growth initiatives.

Readers can trade in Hitachi's shares on either the OTC market or the Tokyo Stock Exchange. The trading liquidity for Hitachi's OTC shares is pretty decent based on its three-month average daily trading value of around $3 million. The company's Japan-listed shares offer even better liquidity with an average daily trading value in excess of $100 million for the past three months. Investors can consider US brokers like Interactive Brokers (IBKR) and Fidelity which provide trading access for Japan-listed stocks, if they intend to trade in the relatively more liquid Tokyo-listed Hitachi stock.

Short-Term Outlook For Hitachi Is Unfavorable

The near-term prospects for Hitachi aren't encouraging.

Hitachi's most recent quarterly financial performance was poor. In the first quarter of fiscal 2022 (year ended March 31, 2023 as defined by the company), the company's net profit attributable to shareholders fell by -70% YoY to JPY37.1 billion. Revenue for Hitachi contracted by -12% QoQ to JPY2,570 billion in Q1 FY 2022.

Looking ahead, the sell-side analysts forecast (source: S&P Capital IQ) that Hitachi's YoY top line expansion will moderate from +8.5% in Q1 FY 2022 to +1.9% for Q2 FY 2022, and the company's revenue is projected to decrease by -11.4% YoY in Q3 FY 2022.

The company's automotive systems business, otherwise referred to as Astemo, was the main factor contributing to Hitachi's poor first-quarter financial performance and weak short-term outlook. Astemo was the only loss-making business segment for Hitachi in the recent quarter, with the automotive systems business generating a Q1 FY 2022 net loss attributable to shareholders amounting to -JPY20.9 billion. I will touch on the specific headwinds for Astemo in the subsequent section of the article.

Semiconductor Chip Shortage And China Lockdown

Many companies have been badly affected by the shortage of semiconductor chips , and Hitachi's Astemo was a victim as well.

Major automotive OEMs pulled back on their manufacturing plans and targets as they didn't have sufficient semiconductor chips, and this in turn led to lower sales volume for automotive systems company, Astemo.

But it is worthy of note that structural issues are at also at play here. Due to the business model that Astemo has chosen to adopt, it is at a bigger risk of being vulnerable to disruptions relating to the auto makers' production and new industry trends.

Hitachi acknowledged at the company's Q1 FY 2022 earnings call that Astemo is largely "a subcontractor" engaged in "providing parts or components to automotive manufacturers" which "occupies a very large portion" of its business. Hitachi also highlighted at the recent quarterly briefing that "if electrification continues, they (the future electric vehicles) are not heavy chassis that used to be in the past."

In other words, even if the semiconductor shortage issue is resolved in time to come, Hitachi's automotive systems business or Astemo could still underperform if it can't pivot successfully. Hitachi specifically mentioned at the first-quarter investor call that "we want to introduce our own model" rather than remain as a subcontractor, and it will also "allocate more resources" to meeting the demand for lightweight chassis catering to EVs.

Another key factor that resulted in lower-than-expected automotive OEM production and weaker-than-expected sales for Astemo was the COVID-19 lockdowns in China which is the key manufacturing location for many automakers.

China's decision to continue with its COVID-zero stance raises the risks of future lockdowns which will definitely affect auto manufacturing and be a big negative for the global automotive market. Notably, a recent September 15, 2022 South China Morning Post article quoted the "vice administrator of the National Administration of Disease Control and Prevention" in China saying that the country's "Covid-19 prevention and control measures are the most economical and the most efficient." As such, it won't be realistic to expect a major change in China's COVID-zero approach anytime soon, and it is necessary to keep an eye on the potential downside risks for Astemo in that regard.

Medium-Term Growth Expectations

According to the sell-side's consensus financial estimates sourced from S&P Capital IQ, the analysts expect Hitachi's EBIT to grow by a decent +10% CAGR from JPY739 billion in FY 2022 to JPY991 billion in FY 2025.

In my view, the market's consensus operating income growth expectations for Hitachi in the intermediate term are realistic. The positive outlook of GlobalLogic, a company that Hitachi acquired last year, and Hitachi's plans to sell the stakes in some of its listed businesses will be supportive of its mid-term growth as detailed in the next section.

New Growth Engine And Divestment Of Interests In Listed Businesses

In the medium term, I am of the view that faster-than-expected growth for GlobalLogic and capital recycling plans should be the key drivers for Hitachi.

On July 14, 2021, Hitachi issued a media release revealing that it had concluded the deal to buy over GlobalLogic. In the press release, Hitachi described GlobalLogic as a company which "specializes in advanced digital engineering, experience design, and data services" to assist its customers with "the development of new digital products and experiences."

Digital transformation is a global trend, and there is demand for digital transformation services as well. But there are fewer companies focused on providing such digital transformation services in Japan, and this represents an opportunity which Hitachi can exploit with GlobalLogic, its new growth engine.

At its Q1 FY 2022 results briefing, Hitachi emphasized that "although demand in market for DX (or Digital Transformation) is high (in the Japanese market), supply has not been enough." Hitachi also disclosed at the recent quarterly earnings call that the company's goal is to increase the number of employees for GlobalLogic and the digital transformation business to as many as 1,500 people to be in a good position to capitalize on strong demand in this area.

Separately, Hitachi has indicated at its first-quarter investor briefing that it aims to sell its stakes in Hitachi Metals (OTCPK:HMTLY) (OTCPK:HMTLF) [5486:JP] and Hitachi Transport System [9086:JP] by March 31, 2023, at the latest. The funds raised from such sales can help to finance future growth opportunities, by allowing Hitachi to recycle capital from divestments into new businesses boasting faster top-line growth and superior profitability.

Closing Thoughts

Hitachi is a Hold-rated stock. I have a mixed view of the stock, in consideration of the challenges for Astemo, GlobalLogic's growth opportunities, and potential corporate actions.

TOKYO -- Foreign nationals now account for 26% of young employees that Japanese industrial group Hitachi has selected as potential candidates for future management positions, compared with just a few names when the program began four years ago.

The 119 employees selected in fiscal 2021, mainly in their 30s and 40s, will be assigned to overseas posts and cross-business projects.

Killexams : Hitachi to scale back locations

Hitachi is planning to reduce the amount of its office space in the Tokyo metropolitan area, while allowing more employees to telework.

The Japanese industrial conglomerate expects that only around half its workers will need to show up at work even after the coronavirus pandemic is over.

Several of roughly 40 locations in the capital region belonging to Hitachi and its group firms will be consolidated. The goal is to reduce total office space by 20 percent by fiscal 2024.

Hitachi's IT systems will be bolstered to handle over 120,000 workers accessing its in-house networks simultaneously from home and elsewhere. That means quadrupling the pre-pandemic capacity.

Some locations will also be revamped. Spaces that encourage communication among employees and booths for online meetings will be created.

Many other Japanese businesses have been scaling back their physical workspaces.

Electronics firm Fujitsu is planning to cut its office space by half. Telecom giant NTT East moved out of its 57,000-square-meter office in Tokyo in March.

Killexams : Hitachi Energy expansion in Virginia gets $731,000 in grants © Provided by Washington Examiner

(The Center Square) – A Hitachi Energy expansion project in Halifax County, Virginia will receive at least $731,000 in grants, but could receive more funding, Gov. Glenn Youngkin announced.

The company is investing about $37 million to create a new production line for making larger transformers to support utility and renewable energy markets, according to the governor’s office. The investment will add 26,000 square feet to its facility and is expected to create 165 new jobs.

“Hitachi Energy’s ambitious expansion in Halifax County represents a strong commitment and tremendous vote of confidence in the Commonwealth of Virginia as a great place to do business,” Youngkin said in a statement. “Hitachi Energy has been an important, long-standing employer in Southern Virginia for nearly 50 years, and we are thrilled the company will create additional good-paying jobs in the community.”

The governor approved a $551,500 grant through the Commonwealth’s Opportunity Fund to help Halifax County with the project. Another $220,000 grant from the Virginia Tobacco Region Revitalization Commission will also support the project. The company will also receive support for employee training through the state-funded Virginia Jobs Investment Program.

In addition to those grants, Hitachi is eligible for two more grant programs. This includes the Virginia Enterprise Zone Program, which could reward up to $100,000 to assist with the expansion. It also includes the Port of Virginia Economic and Infrastructure Development Zone Grant Program, which could reward up to $500,000 to help with the expansion. If the company receives the maximum grants through both of these programs, the project could receive more than $1.3 million in total grant funding.

“Hitachi Energy’s decision to reinvest in its Halifax County facility is a testament to Southern Virginia’s skilled manufacturing workforce and integrated transportation network that allows the company to extend its market reach,” Secretary of Commerce and Trade Caren Merrick said in a statement. “We look forward to a continued partnership with this expansion, which further secures the future longevity of Hitachi Energy in the Commonwealth.”

Hitachi employs more than 720 people in Virginia, which includes about 370 workers at the Halifax County facility. The company’s global headquarters is in Switzerland and its North American headquarters is based in Raleigh, North Carolina.
