Midterm Plan(FY2018 - FY2020)

The Central Glass Group has formulated a new three-year plan that covers the period from fiscal 2018 through fiscal 2020.

During this three-year period:

  • We will emphasize the operating profit ratio to show efficiency as a key performance indicator with the aim of restoring operating profit, which reflects the earnings power of our core businesses.
  • We will target an ROE of 6% based on our profit target, but this is just a milestone on the way to achieving our final goal of an ROE of 8% or more. We will continue to make improvements to reach our final goal.
  • We will use the cash we generate to continuously return profits to shareholders in a stable manner. Moreover, we will push ahead with investments and R&D to advance to our next stage of growth.
