Our human resource strategy and financial strategy are the foundation of our growth strategies. We will create social value and customer value through execution of our strategies to achieve the sustainable growth of the MEDIPAL Group.

Business portfolio prioritizations

To realize the Medium-Term Vision, we designated new businesses, the medical devices and reagents business, and the AGRO & FOOD business as priority businesses. By intensively investing management resources in these priority businesses, we aim to grow their share of ordinary profit to approximately 50% in the fiscal year ending March 31, 2027 from approximately 30% in the fiscal year ended March 31, 2023, and to achieve ordinary profit of ¥100 billion. Our core businesses consist of the Prescription Pharmaceutical Wholesale Business – the Group’s largest business that provides a stable supply of products that are indispensable to people’s daily lives – as well as the Cosmetics, Daily Necessities and OTC Pharmaceutical Wholesale Business. We will expand both of these core businesses, while also increasing added value and productivity further.

Aim for ordinary profit of ¥100 billion in the fiscal year ending March 31, 2027, with approx. 50% coming from priority businesses
