Terrie Lloyd is a Tokyo-based New Zealand and Australian dual national who claims to have started 27 companies in Japan. He came to Japan in 1983 and set up a successful outsourcing business that was sold to EDS. He started a technology magazine, called Japan Inc, which failed. In 2007, he bought Metropolis magazine from its founders, Mark & Mary Devlin, but reneged on paying them for it. He has since engaged in multiple frauds to hide his assets from the Devlins.

Metropolis sale

Acquisition

After publishing over 700 issues, the Devlins sell Metropolis to Lloyd, a New Zealand and Australian dual national, based in Japan. Over 14 years the magazine has grown to over 80 full-color pages every week made by a team of 35 staff from all over the world. The magazine has annual sales of ¥360 million and 20% profit, from hundreds of display and commercial classified advertisers and is, by far, Japan’s No 1 English magazine. A brief history of Metropolis is here.
