This period, we achieved new record highs in terms of orders, net sales, and operating income, with an ROE of 19.5% (17.7% in the previous period). Among the factors contributing to increased orders were robust capital investment in the semiconductor sector in East Asia and North America, large investments underpinned by e-commerce in Japan, and demand for the upgrading of airport baggage handling systems in North America. We have also succeeded with efforts to bolster our production framework in recent years, which allows us to accommodate a rapidly rising order volume and achieve significant sales growth. Operating income also grew substantially, reflecting rising non-consolidated sales and greater productivity as well as the improved performance at consolidated subsidiaries dealing in semiconductors, flat-panel display (FPD) technologies, and OLED solutions.Progress with the Value Innovation 2020 medium-term business planIn 2017, Daifuku established the Value Innovation 2020 medium-term business plan in which we created a set of management targets for fiscal 2020 as a way station to achieve our goals for the future. Since we achieved our initial targets in fiscal 2018—well ahead of the final year of the plan—we have re-examined our key performance indicators (see figure below).Daifuku and changes in the business environmentOur business environment has seen tumultuous change in recent years owing to globalization and its effects; increasing movement of people and goods, technological innovations such as IoT (Internet of things), ICT (information and communications technology), and AI (artificial intelligence), and changes in distribution modes. Logistics are also changing quickly in response to social change, and companies are being compelled to develop and provide new logistics solutions. Much is expected of Daifuku as well. Although the hurdles we must clear are high and challenging, we see that the material handling market is growing quickly, providing business opportunities for Daifuku.Management targets9Daifuku Report 2019
