To Our Shareholders and Investors
Dainichiseika Group, positioned at midstream in the chemical industry, develops and provides new products in collaboration with its customers. We handle a diverse range of products, including pigments, functional materials, synthetic resins, and polymers derived from natural substances. Our offerings are used on products spanning a broad range of industries, from automotive components, electrical equipment parts, and construction materials to the textiles, packaging, and information-related materials used in our everyday lives.
As a result, we have built a portfolio that is relatively impervious to economic fluctuations. Amid a changing economic environment, we aim to strengthen the portfolio for the Group’s continuous growth and to realize medium- to long-term corporate value.
We are continuing our efforts from the previous year to invest in products that we expect to grow domestically and internationally, and in improving technological and manufacturing efficiencies.
As part of the system restructuring, we are introducing an enterprise resource planning (ERP) system. In response to the ongoing logistics issue, we are introducing a more rational system for continued and better service.
Targeting ROA of 5% or higher as a management objective, we pursue policies introduced from a medium- to long-term perspective. We sustain our operations by maintaining a focus on ordinary income. In response to changes in the domestic market, we are shifting our weight toward growth products and products that differentiate us from other companies, and thereby strengthening profitability. Going forward, we will continue measures to augment our corporate value, and intend to provide stable shareholder returns.
I thank our shareholders and investors for the trust they have placed in our Group to date. We aim to remain worthy of your trust going forward.
