It should be ‘IMC’ in title, not Toyota.

I presume that you are aware about principal agent relationship. It applies in case of I.M.C., as it is sub part of Toyota group, and it cannot operate without using the name. Moreover, Toyota global is also supposed to consolidate its revenues earned from Pakistan in global financial statements. So, in my humble opinion, the title is correct. Moreover, people know that Toyota is a maker of vehicles and not an assembler, which is one off several modes that the multinational is opting to conduct its operations by collaborating with local business tycoons.
