We deeply appreciate the steadfast encouragement and support of our shareholders.
In the last fiscal year ended March 31, 2017, we were able to resume dividend payments, which had been a major management issue, and we have finally reached the point where we can clearly see the path we must now follow toward sustainable growth. We could not have arrived at this milestone without the support of our shareholders, to which we once again express our profound gratitude.
The current fiscal year ending March 31, 2018, marks the launch of Tobishima's new three-year medium-term management plan. Under the plan, we will become a company that harnesses its construction and disaster prevention technologies to promote and develop the industries of the future. Moreover, we will break from convention by moving beyond simply meeting customer needs in order to transform into a company that creates new services with its proprietary technologies. This aspiration is reflected in our management vision of evolving into a "New Business Contractor."
We advance into this new vision of the future with confidence, grateful as ever for the continued support of our shareholders.
