Message from the President
Leopalace21's Business Is to Resolve Issues Related to People and Housing
On behalf of Leopalace21, I would like to take this opportunity to convey my gratitude to our shareholders and investors for their continued support.
The value we provide to people will also continually change in response to changes in the times
Leopalace21's business is to build necessary housing on land where demand is high, and then lease it; in other words, to provide land owners with an effective, worry-free way to use their assets, and tenants with convenient and comfortable housing. In that context, our business is to resolve issues related to people and housing. As Leopalace21 is a company that resolves issues in society, the value we provide to people through our business will also have to continually change in response to changes in people's lives, society, and the times.
Medium-term management plan "EXPANDING VALUE" (April 2014 - March 2017)
We have announced the medium-term management plan "EXPANDING VALUE" in May 2014. While focusing on the leasing and construction businesses, we will challenge new businesses and expand our business territory, based on the plan's fundamental policy of "focusing on core businesses and challenging itself with new business fields."
Concerning the first and second year of the Mid-term Plan, even though there was a difference in results between business segments, the company was able to meet its overall forecast. We announced the resumption of dividends for the first time in seven years, and are pleased to be able to redistribute profits to our shareholders.
To meet forecasts for the final year of our Mid-term Plan (fiscal year ending March 2017), as well as achieving long-term growth, we will strengthen training of young employees, in addition to systems which support female employees, such as the introduction of paid leave by the hour, telecommuting, interviews after returning from maternity leave, and a "working support dial."
I would like to request the continued support and encouragement of all our stakeholders.
President and CEO
