FY2019-FY2021 Mid-term Business Plan

Review of Take a New Step 2016

Our previous Mid-term Business Plan, Take a New Step 2016 concluded in the fiscal year ended March 31, 2019 with the Company achieving sales in excess of 170 billion yen. This achievement is based on the steady accumulation of results in line with action plans set by each business group for tackling priority issues as part of the three-year Mid-term Business Plan. In particular, the safety systems business continued to exhibit significant growth, forming a major pillar of Nippon Kayaku Group’s business activities that accounted for 30% of the Company’s total sales in the fiscal year ended March 31, 2019.

Vision for 2025

In light of past growth, we established the next milestone, “Vision for 2025” in order to achieve sustainable growth into the future. Targets for each business were compiled to form company-wide objectives, which include sales of 250 billion yen and an operating income of 30 billion yen, as well as ROE of 10%, to be used as an indicator of corporate value growth.

New Mid-term Business Plan, KAYAKU Next Stage

In the fiscal year ending March 31, 2020 we started our new Mid-term Business Plan, KAYAKU Next Stage. This first stage targets were set by backcasting from Vision for 2025. Although this plan calls for an increase in revenue but a drop in profits in the fiscal year ending March 31, 2020, we aim to turn this around in terms of profits by the final year of the Mid-term Business Plan in the fiscal year ending March 31, 2022, setting a target for increased net sales and operating profits of 210 billion yen and 22.5 billion yen, respectively, and ROE of 8%. Looking ahead, we will strive to achieve sustainable growth while carrying out Key Themes of the Mid-term Business Plan, KAYAKU Next Stage and the Mid-term CSR Action Plan.
