To Our Shareholders and Investors

We are aiming for
further growth by
being a company with
business value in society.

Masaru Narita, President & CEO

I would like to express my deepest appreciation for your support to OYO Corporation.

Looking at the business environment surrounding our group, the construction investment-type public works market, which had been the main market in the past, has been shrinking year by year in Japan. On the other hand, market opportunities for the Group are expanding dramatically against the backdrop of rising demand for disaster prevention and mitigation in response to a series of natural disasters, expansion of the infrastructure maintenance and management market, and rapid growth of the renewable energy market centered on offshore wind power generation. However, strong demand for infrastructure construction and renewal, particularly in Asia, has become an opportunity for growth. In addition, the risk of a slowdown in the global economy, such as trade friction between the US and China, has emerged, and the outlook remains uncertain, particularly in the areas of resources and energy.

Against this backdrop, in line with our medium-term management plan “OYO Jump18,” we are aggressively pursuing Group re-growth, including the development of solutions to meet diversifying social challenges, the creation of ICT platforms that leverage artificial intelligence (AI) and clouds, R&D and M&A that anticipate global market expansion in BIM (Building Information Modelling), and the development of new technologies and capital investments in renewable energies and other growth markets through the use of three-dimensional ground visualization, ICT, big data analysis, and sensing and monitoring technologies as core technologies.

We ask our shareholders and investors for their further understanding and support of our business.

April 2019

Masaru Narita, President & CEO
