To Our Shareholders and Investors:
I would like to thank all of our shareholders for their continuous help and support dedicated to our company.
Since its foundation in 1999, oRo has been running its business with the goal and commitment to "be a company where every employee can create world-class products and services, and provide as more happiness and joy to as many people as possible", as we declared in our management philosophy. I am pleased to announce that oRo listed its shares on the Mothers (market of the high-growth and emerging stocks) section of the Tokyo Stock Exchange (TSE) in March 24, 2017, and that we moved up to the First Section of the TSE in March 26, 2018. Once again, I would like to express our deepest gratitude toward everyone who has supported our company. We are willing to develop oRo so it can become the company that we are aiming at.
In the world of Technology and Creativity, oRo's main business area, we have been experiencing rapid changes since the past - for example, the invention of the internet, the creation of smartphone, the development of Artificial Intelligence (AI), etc. - and we will experience even more changes in the future. In such a situation, we have tried not to judge things on a short-term basis. We would like to meet the expectations of our shareholders and investors by aiming at a medium and long-term development and by providing socially beneficial products and services in order to become a world-class company.
Our priority is to achieve and sustain continuous growth through our existing business areas in order to establish a strong business base. At the same time, we are willing to challenge new business areas in order to grow on a medium and long-term basis.
We would like to take this opportunity to ask our shareholders and investors for their continued support and understanding.
CEO, Atsushi KAWATA
