For Investors

I’d like to thank all of our stakeholders for their continued support.
My name is Ichiro Uno, and I took office as President & CEO of Daiichi Jitsugyo Co., Ltd. on April 1, 2017.

The DJK Group has closed its accounts for the 94th term (from April 1, 2016 to March 31, 2017). I hereby provide its financial results.


Japan’s economy maintained a course of gentle recovery during the consolidated fiscal year ended March 31, 2017. Corporate earnings, employment, and personal income all showed improvements, thanks to the Japanese government’s economic stimulus measures and monetary policies. Additionally, crude oil prices appear on their way to recovery from downward trends. Nevertheless, several factors continued to cloud the future outlook, including the emergence of geopolitical risks in certain countries and regions; changing political and economic policies in the United States; Britain’s withdrawal from the EU; and slowing economic growth in China and in emerging markets.


Despite these conditions, the DJK Group achieved strong consolidated business performance for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2017, thanks to sales from large-scale orders for equipment for plants overseas, as well as strong sales of production equipment and other products for manufacturers of IT equipment and other digital devices. While some of our businesses did record losses due to changing external conditions and other factors, our overall business performance improved significantly from the preceding year. We recorded our highest ever net profit attributable to shareholders of the parent company.


As I have taken over the reins of the Group under these positive business conditions, I believe that any progress by the Group toward future growth will require rapid management decision-making suited to an increasingly diverse and complex world and the Group’s continuing success in generating high value added to meet customer expectations. So that we may become a highly productive company with a permanent presence as a total supplier of industrial machinery, we will strive to further strengthen our business foundations by promoting multifunctionality on a global scale and thorough risk management and by building a powerful governance system in our five business fields.


To guide the DJK Group to stable growth and to pass it on to the next generation in strong, healthy shape, we will initiate steadfast implementation of the Mid-term Management Plan DASH2018 as part of Group-wide efforts targeting improved business performance.


We earnestly ask all our stakeholders for their continuing support.


May 2017
