Toward a Space Creation Company and Beyond

In May 2020, we announced our Long-term Vision “DESIGN 2030” and the previous Medium-term Business Plan, and in the process of promoting them, we have confirmed the expansion of our revenue base and the stability of our earnings by transforming ourselves into a Space Creation Company. However, we also recognized the need to further develop our business beyond being a space creation company to achieve further growth. As a Space Creation Company, in order to propose and provide spaces for various scenes, it is necessary to consider and envision how people spend their time in that space. In other words, space creation involves thinking about what kind of space to provide and how people can utilize the space, and this is closely related to considering how spatial operations are carried out. In this sense, we believe that beyond the space creation business, there is potential, and we will continue to consider the possibility of expanding in the space operation business.
