First we would like to sincerely thank our shareholders for your continued support.

We hereby report the results for FY2018 ended March 31, 2019.
In FY2018, Nihon Kohden put more sales resources into the Tokyo metropolitan area in April 2018, following the absorption of domestic sales subsidiaries in 2017. The Company concentrated on enhancing sales activities which match each market; the acute care hospital market, the small and mid-sized hospital market, and the clinic market. Domestic sales increased as the Company introduced new products with high customer value and focused on expanding its consumables and services business. Internationally, as the Company strengthened its business structure, sales in the Americas and Asia increased favorably. As a result, both overall sales and income increased.

To realize its long-term vision for 2020, The CHANGE 2020, Nihon Kohden is implementing its three-year mid-term business plan, TRANSFORM 2020. In FY2019, which is the final year of the plan, the Company continues to focus on expanding its domestic and overseas business and further improving its profitability in order to transform to a high profitable structure.
The full-year dividend for FY2018 was 35 yen per share, in which the interim and the year-end dividends were 17 yen and 18 yen per share. We deeply appreciate your continued support.
