Management Message

Our corporate group follows a philosophy that we express as follows: By delivering safety and comfort along with dreams and excitement, we create satisfaction among our customers and contribute to society. The group conducts businesses in six core segments: Urban Transportation, Real Estate, Entertainment, Information and Communication Technology, Travel, and International Transportation.

In May 2022, we unveiled a long-term vision titled Toward 2040. This vision defines the kind of corporate group we aspire to be: one that contributes to a sustainable society and grows alongside the Kansai region. The vision also assumes that ongoing large projects will start contributing to our consolidated growth in the 2035–2040 period. One example is Shibata 1 Project, which involves rebuilding Hotel new Hankyu Osaka and Hankyu Terminal Building and redeveloping areas such as Hankyu Sanbangai. One other project involves building the Naniwasuji Connection Line and Shin-Osaka Connection Line, which will strengthen connectivity between Osaka Umeda and Shin-Osaka (Shin-Osaka has been designated as a hub for emergency urban regeneration).

Alongside Toward 2040, we also unveiled a medium-term plan to set out specific actions aligned with the long-term vision. The plan covers a four-year period from the year ending March 2023 to the year ending March 2026. By the end of the period, we aim to have returned to our pre-pandemic growth trajectory and to have prepared a firm foundation for achieving our long-term vision. With a view to achieving these medium-term goals, we will take the following actions. In the current year (ending March 2024), we will focus on recovering profit growth in our existing businesses, building on our success in fortifying the revenue structure of these businesses. Meanwhile, we will continue developing our newer businesses, which have seen decent growth over the past several years. For example, in the Real Estate segment, we will develop business overseas. In the Entertainment segment, we will enhance streaming services. For FY2026 and beyond, we will step up investment in growth projects in light of indications that the pandemic is coming to an end. We will also press ahead with a digital transformation project called the Hankyu Hanshin DX Project.

Alongside these actions, we will continue delivering on our commitment to sustainable corporate development, as enshrined in our Sustainability Declaration. By addressing social issues through our business, we will build long-term sustainable value.

We appreciate your continued understanding and support as our Group works as one to meet the expectations of all our stakeholders.
