OK, it isn't really parallel grammatical form in this case, since they 
are all noun phrases, but the form in which each company is listed and 
attributions given for each should be parallel.  That is, details such 
as "the consultancy $foo" or "$foo of Japan" or "$foo, Inc." should 
either be added in all cases or not at all.
