7th Medium-term Business Plan
From FY 2018, the Ishihara Sangyo Kaisha Group has launched its Seventh Medium-term Business Plan toward 2020, its 100th anniversary year.
～ Becoming a chemical company that is attractive to all stakeholders ～
Toward FY 2020, the final year of the Plan and our 100th anniversary year, while solidifying our footholds in existing businesses, this Mid-term Plan is aimed at “becoming a chemical company that is attractive to all stakeholders” by reinforcing aggressive initiatives for further growth.
We will steadily accumulate profits each year to enhance shareholders’ equity while establishing robust revenue and financial bases capable of withstanding changes in external environments, and will thereby resume dividend payments as early as possible during this Mid-term Plan period.
