In addition, the Company has made a significant achievement in making PARCO a wholly owned subsidiary. Looking forward, the Company is planning to innovate the business structure, further strengthen the Group management, and enhance corporate value.

Congratulations to Mr Yamamoto, Mr Yoshimoto and Mr Sawada for their nominations and join us in welcoming the new team.
