First, we would like to express our sincere gratitude to our shareholders and investors, for your continued support.
This is to inform you of our Company’s Consolidated Business Result for the 45th fiscal year (the period from October 1, 2022 to September 30, 2023). On this occasion, we would like to say a few words.
As for this period, uncertain political and economic situation continued, such as concerns about an economic slowdown due to the effect by prolonged Russia-Ukraine situation and rapid inflation. On the other hand, the business environment surrounding the Company remained favorable due to the resumption of economic activities in earnest around the world.
In particular, on the sales front, under the newly established Global Sales Division, we have expanded our global and organized sales activities. Also by focusing on exhibiting our products at major exhibitions around the world, we were able to increase our contacts with customers and receive many inquiries.
As a result, the amount of orders received during the period recorded the highest ever, and the order backlogs remained at a high level. Similarly, sales were the second highest on record, and operating profit significantly exceeded the previous year. Following such a situation, the dividend for this fiscal year has been decided to be 120 yen per share, increased by 20 yen from the previous fiscal year, and paid from 4th December.
Going forward, we assume our business to shift stably as the demand for our products based on the living necessities is prospected to show steady growth. Growing interest in social issues such as climate change and environmental impact of plastics is also expected to boost demand for our products, which have strengths in environment-conscious technologies. As a leading company in the industry, we will continue advanced research and development activities, and proactively address social issues such as climate change and ESG management, with the aim of expanding our business scale over the medium to long term and sustainable growth of the Company.
We hope our shareholders and investors will look forward to our Company’s further growth, and we would greatly appreciate your continued support and encouragement.
