Current Status & Outlook for the Dentsu Group

Outlook for the Japan business

  • In Japan, which is our core business, we forecast a decline in gross profit as the same period of the previous year was the record high. The progress was in line with our expectation, so we maintained our guidance only with minor adjustment.
  • From last October onward, in order to implement fundamental solutions to our labor issues in Japan, we also reviewed the overall workstyle within the Dentsu Group here in Japan and examined actual operations as the first priority, including rolling out emergency measures.
  • Each employee is working to reduce their total work hours and restructure their own workstyle. At the same time, they are pouring all their energy into meeting client expectations. I would like to express my respect and gratitude to all of our employees for continuing to give their utmost to their jobs.
