Toshihide Ogura

I would like to express my thanks for the outstanding support that the Mie Kotsu Group’s business receives.

As the pure holding company that oversees the Mie Kotsu Group, the Company plans and implements the Group’s basic strategies while also promoting and supporting the business activities of each company and business in the Group. With the Mie Kotsu brand power and reliability as the foundation, the four different business areas of transportation, real estate, distribution, and leisure services collaborate and complement each other to build a structure that is able to respond to risks. In this way, the Company is aiming for becoming a “comprehensive life industry” player that achieves sustainable growth in close contact with local communities. Also, the Company believes that key to a corporate group’s survival is continuing to be useful to customers and local communities and earning their trust. Because of this, the Company will continue to deliver safety, peace of mind, reliability, and comfortable services.

The Mie Kotsu Group has been actively developing its business based on the Mid-term Management Plan established in February 2016. In particular, we have been steadily implementing our investment plan for our environment and energy business, which is a growth field, and our business hotel business, which we operate under the Sanco Inn brand, and we have enhanced the Group's profitability.

In regard to consolidated results for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2018, we achieved the highest ever operating profit since transitioning to a holding company structure in 2006, while ordinary profit exceeded the \6,000 million mark for the first time, setting a record high for the second consecutive fiscal year. As for profit attributable to owners of parent, this is the sixth fiscal year running that we posted record high. Going forward, we will concentrate on achieving sustainable growth and improving corporate value while expanding our business activities.

We ask for everyone’s continued support and cooperation.
