Medium Term Business Plan

Having reflected on the outcomes and issues produced by the previous medium-term business plan discussed above, the Group began a new medium-term business plan in April 2019, which runs for the five-year period from March 2020 fiscal year to March 2024 fiscal year. As I mentioned earlier, the automotive industry, including parts manufacturers, is facing a major transformation caused by the adoption of next-generation technology related to CASE,* including electrification and self-driving vehicles. It is difficult to get a clear view of the future business environment and trends in demand because, in addition to the continued risk to the global economy of the US-China trade friction as well as economic and political conditions in emerging countries, the domestic economy is facing problems such as the decline in the workforce and the difficulties with the social security system. To survive this era of remarkable changes in the business environment, two strategies for the new medium-term business plan have been developed: “stronger management structure” and “leading products and high competitiveness” to support “Focus on the Quality of Management” In addition to working to maintain and expand the market position   of our core products through the solid execution of these two strategies, we will also tackle new businesses. By reliably implementing these initiatives, we will create a more sustainable corporate group and contribute to the development of industry and society. Moreover, our targets are an operating margin of 6.0%, return on equity (ROE) of 9.0%, and total shareholder return of 25% (five-year average).
