With the completion of the Group’s three-year Medium-term Business Plan 2019 -Paper, and beyond- at the end of March 2020, a new plan had been drawn up with preparations underway for it to be made public in the near future. However, with the business environment likely to change significantly as a result of the global spread of COVID-19, it was decided that this situation necessitates a revision of the new Group Medium-term Business Plan.
Given this, a plan for the next period will be drawn up incorporating strategies and policies that take into account future changes in the business environment and the “new normal” that is likely to emerge from this situation. The plan is scheduled to commence from April 2021 and will be made public at time appropriate to this timeframe.
We would sincerely ask our shareholders, investors and all related stakeholders for their understanding with regard to this situation and the new schedule.
