Background Behind the Long-term Vision and Medium-term Business Plan
Fiscal 2019 marks the final year of the Tokyo Tatemono Group five-year Medium-Term Business Plan, the aim of which is, "Tokyo Tatemono Group aims to continue to be the leading choice." The group achieved fiscal 2019 operating income of ¥52.4 billion and record-high profits in fiscal 2018 and fiscal 2019. Plan execution went smoothly as the group exceeded profit growth targets. Financial indicators also reflected the group's disciplined financial management. Fiscal 2019 debt-equity ratio was 2.5 times, while the interest-bearing debt to EBITDA multiple was 12.6 times.
Meanwhile, looking at the immediate business environment reveals significant changes across a variety of matters. These changes include intensifying international competition across cities, diversification of lifestyles, advancements in digital technology, and increased awareness of ESG.
Aiming to achieve sustainable growth for the group amid this business environment, the group has formulated a long-term vision looking ahead to the year 2030, which is the target year for the Sustainable Development Goals and the approximate time when a number of large-scale redevelopment projects will be completed.

In an era full of uncertainty and rapid change in terms of demographics, diverse values, accelerating technological progress, and more, various issues have emerged on the path to creating a sustainable society.
The Tokyo Tatemono Group recognizes that the role developers play must also change significantly.
The group's aim is to be a good company for stakeholders by leveraging its businesses to solve social issues and achieve higher levels of growth as a company.

Basic Profit Growth Policy
- Steadily expand stable leasing profit, making it the core of our profit composition
- Target a well-balanced profit structure, mindful of capital efficiency
* Consolidated business profit = consolidated operating profit + share of profit (loss) of entities accounted for using equity method. To capture the growth of overseas businesses, we have defined business profit as a target profit indicator. Business profit is the sum of operating profit and share of profit (loss) of entities accounted for using equity method.

In the first step toward achieving our 2030 long-term vision, we have established a five-year period from 2020 to 2024 for our Medium-term Business Plan, targeting a milestone of ¥75 billion in consolidated business profit.

In addition, the group has set the following ROE, debt-equity ratio, and interest-bearing debt to EBITDA multiple for FY2024 to optimize its business portfolio in consideration of capital efficiency and fiscal discipline.
Consolidated business profit*1: ¥75.0 billion
Debt-equity ratio*2: Appr. 2.4X
Consolidated business profit = consolidated operating profit + share of profit (loss) of entities accounted for using equity method
Debt-equity ratio = consolidated interest-bearing debt / consolidated owners' equity
Interest-bearing debt / EBITDA multiple = interest-bearing debt / (operating profit + interest & dividend income + equity gains (losses) of affiliated companies + depreciation expense + goodwill amortization expense)
