I would like to take this opportunity to express my sincere thanks to you for your extra high dividends during normal times.
In April 2020, we announced Growing Together 2023, our three-year medium-term management plan covering the period from April 2020 to March 2023, as the second stage for realizing the Yuasa Vision 360.
Based on the keywords of "Total Coordination Skills," "challenging Spirit," and "Communication," we will identify and cultivate growth businesses (=businesses for solving social issues). At the same time, we will realize productivity improvement through true work style reform, aiming to achieve quantitative targets for the fiscal year ending March 2023, which is the final year of the plan, sales of 545 billion yen, ordinary income of 16.4 billion yen and a shareholder return ratio of 33.0% or more.
I would like to ask all of our shareholders for their continued support.
