Tokyo, March 28, 2013 - NEC Corporation (NEC; TSE: 6701) and HCL Technologies Limited (HCLT) reached an agreement for NEC to obtain full control of NEC HCL System Technologies (NHST), a joint venture software company. Based on the agreement, NEC will acquire HCLT's 49% share of NHST. As a result, NHST will become a wholly owned subsidiary of NEC.
