Message from the Chairman and the President

 President & Representative Director

FUJISOFT will strive to strengthen its corporate
governance to achieve sustainable growth and enhance
corporate value over the medium to long term.

In the information service industry, despite lingering uncertainties such as shortages of materials and components including semiconductors, supply chain disruptions, and rising global prices, the establishment of the new normal in the Corona disaster and government support provided a tailwind, and the appetite for digital transformation for the purpose of business model reform and business innovation, such as "digital transformation(DX)", became even stronger. However, the establishment of the new normal in the wake of the Corona disaster and support from the government have also provided a tailwind. In addition, demand for strategic system investments to improve productivity, operational efficiency, and automation against the backdrop of labor shortages continued to grow.

Under these circumstances, our group has formulated a three-year medium-term management plan, starting with the current consolidated fiscal year, and has been working to achieve sustainable growth and increase added value under the management policy of "Lead DX in the aspects of both IT and OT with digitaltechnologies and contribute to value improvement and innovations by customers and society"

In order to promote the strengthening of human resources, our most important management resource, we have continued to focus on aggressive hiring and investment in education. On top of that, we have continued to strengthen our technology, and along with strengthening the "AIS-CRM" area to enable higher value-added services, we have also strengthened upstream areas such as IT consulting and service design, and we have also been researching technology in new areas such as 5G and Metaverse. In addition, in order to strengthen our business foundation, we are also focusing on our own DX, promoting internal reforms based on operational reforms and applications to strengthen our business competitiveness. Based on the technology, know-how, and human resources we have accumulated through these activities, we have been focusing on providing DX support to our customers, and in July, we were certified as "a DX-Certified Operator" selected by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry as a representative of digital companies leading DX.

The Fujisoft Group contributes to the development of a sustainable earth and society through its business activities and various social contribution activities in cooperation with society, based on the basic policy of being a corporate group that is "Aiming to become a corporate group that contributes to society provides satisfaction to customers initiates eco-freindly activites and belives in a comfortable and rewarding environment".

As for CSR activities,FUJISOFT KIKAKU Inc(Special subsidiary of FUJISOFT INC) sympathizes with the concept of the SDGs and continues to engage in labor transition support activities to expand employment for people with disabilities and in shiitake mushroom cultivation as a new form of agriculture utilizing ICT technology, in order to realize a sustainable, diverse and inclusive society in which "no one is left behind".

The "Corporate Value Committee" was newly established as an organization to promote further value enhancement for all stakeholders by incorporating the suggestions and proposals received through dialogue with many of our shareholders. Important management issues are verified by individual working groups with external advisors, and decisions are made by the Committee in a manner that reflects the opinions of outside directors and outside corporate auditors, thereby ensuring both effectiveness and fairness. With the appointment of five new outside directors at the Extraordinary General Meeting of Shareholders held on December 4, 2022, the Committee also has a new structure.
The Corporate Value Committee will continue to reexamine business policies, internal resource allocation, governance and dialogue with stakeholders to promote further enhancement of corporate value.

As a result of these activities, the SI business performed well, resulting in net sales of 278,783 million yen (up 8.1% year-on-year) for the current consolidated fiscal year. Selling, general and administrative expenses increased 8.2% to 43,294 million yen, and operating income was 18,272 million yen (up 8.5% year-on-year), ordinary income was 19,205 million yen (up 6.8% year-on-year), and net income attributable to owners of the parent was 11,379 million yen (up 24.6% year-on-year). The annual dividend per share for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2022 will be 127 yen (interim 54 yen, year-end 73 yen).

We would like to ask for the continued support of our shareholders.
