Mid-Term Management Plan

New Medium-Term Management Plan“KBK Plus-One 2025”

“KBK Plus One 2025” is a continuation of the management vision of the previous medium-term management plan, “KBK Breakthrough 2023,” “to be a corporate group that can provide society with +1 (plus one),” while at the same time adding new initiatives to enhance corporate value. This means gaining the trust of the capital markets by implementing a flexible capital policy, ensuring that we maintain our listing on the Prime Market after the change of the TSE’s new market classification, while at the same time developing businesses to realize a sustainable society.
