Message from the President & CEO

We will create new businesses through open innovation and promote a business ecosystem capable of solving societal issues.
The first half of the fiscal year ending March 2018 witnessed a steady improvement of our profitability, enabled by an increase in sales and income/profit, as indicated in: net sales of ¥ 131.9 billion (up by 3.5% compared with the same period of the previous fiscal year); operating income of ¥ 6.7 billion (up by 34.4%); and profit attributable to owners of parent of ¥ 4.7 billion (up by 34.6%).

The Nihon Unisys group has entered the final year of the mid-term management plan launched in the fiscal year ended March 2016.

The group has accelerated its efforts on key strategies such as expanding digital/life innovation areas and changes to business ICT platform areas; reforming corporate cultures and strengthening human resources capabilities. The purpose is to promote a business ecosystem regardless of industry boundaries.

In the digital innovation area, we have expanded our businesses of providing systems capable of further accelerating a branch office reform in financial institutions. These systems operate front office duties which focus on interacting with customers. Furthermore, a payment/settlement service network was expanded through a platform enabled by our subsidiary Canal Payment Services, Ltd.

Our life innovation field businesses related to regional revitalization and sharing economy were promoted. As a result, they have contributed to an enhanced business ecosystem.

Continuing efforts to transform conventional business models to service-type business models have been made, resulting in smooth transitions in the business ICT platform area.

Our group will create new businesses through open innovation in a society that is witnessing intensified digital transformation.
We will continue to play a role of catalyst that generates new businesses capable of solving societal issues with our business partners regardless of industry boundaries.

I gratefully look forward to the continued guidance and encouragement in the years to come.
