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 42nd fiscal year (the period from October 1, 2019, to September 30, 2020).
As for this period, growing demand for safe and hygienic plastic containers adding to market penetration of our new technology, Zero Cooling System resulted in Company’s sales to shift stably mainly in Americas and European region and to record the highest amount of orders received. Although the India plant, our main manufacturing base had been suspended temporarily due to the spread of COVID-19, we succeeded in its early recovery and achieved increased sales and profit with all the entire group’s efforts to deliver products to customers. Once again, we would like to thank you, our shareholders and investors, for your support and partnership.
Further to note that the dividend for this fiscal year has been decided to be 60 yen per share, the same as last fiscal year, and paid from 30th November.
Going forward, we expect that the demand for our products based on the living necessities would shift stably despite the COVID-19 crisis, and will continue strategic measures maintaining the policy of medium-to-long-term growth. More specifically, we intend to expand our sales scale by deploying new technologies to the market, focusing on developments corresponding to market needs such as further evolution of the Zero Cooling System, development of large-scale machines and new containers. Furthermore, we will promote the increase of production capacity and cost reduction by further enhancing the entire group’s production system, including the domestic factories.
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.
