Medium-term Management Plan

Last Update : Sep 25, 2019

Progress of the Medium-term Management Plan “SHIFT 2019 –Fusion-”

Under the Medium-term Management Plan “SHIFT 2019 -Fusion-” (from fiscal 2017 to fiscal 2019) we will make “quantitative growth,” by which we grow sales with profitability by appropriate growth investment for the future, compatible with “qualitative transition,” by which we aim for an operating income ratio of more than 10% through ongoing improvements in profitability by constant structural reform.

Under the Medium-term Management Plan “SHIFT 2019 -Fusion-,” the policy is to conduct aggressive investment while maintaining a sound financial position. To that end, we double strategic investment and establish a new investment framework for M&As. We will make investments for growth from various perspectives, including establishing a new environmental contribution framework. On the other hand, our policy is to maintain active and stable returns of profits to shareholders through dividends and treasury stock acquisition.

In addition to growth in existing businesses, the thinking is that growth under the Medium-term Management Plan “SHIFT 2019 -Fusion-” will be achieved by creating incremental increases in sales in existing businesses through fusion themes and by accelerating the promotion of new businesses (commercialization of incubation and creation themes).

In addition to growth in existing businesses, the thinking is that growth under the Medium-term Management Plan “SHIFT 2019 -Fusion-” will be achieved by creating incremental increases in sales in existing businesses through fusion themes and by accelerating the promotion of new businesses (commercialization of incubation and creation themes).

SEKISUI CHEMICAL Group is currently promoting the ASAKA Leadtown (Town and Community Development Project) at a former Tokyo plant site in Asaka City, Saitama Prefecture as one of several fusion themes. Bringing together a broad collection of the Group’s products, the goal is to create a safe and secure, eco-friendly, sustainable town. At the same time, every effort is being made to promote fusion through collaboration with regional government agencies and companies outside the Group.
