Overview of FY2011 and
Future Management Policies
- Let me start with an overview of the Dentsu Group's earnings for fiscal 2011.
- Earnings in the first half of fiscal 2011 dropped due to the effects of the devastating earthquake. On an annual basis, however, they exceeded last year's levels thanks to the economic recovery in the second half which we were able to turn into revenue growth at the Dentsu Group.
- I am proud that the concerted efforts of our employees led to such results even in the unfavorable business conditions following the earthquake. This also reinforces my confidence toward our future growth.
- The recovery trend of the economy is ongoing, and we will make sure that this leads to increased revenues at the Dentsu Group.
