We will significantly increase net sales and operating profit in fiscal 2020 (ending August 31, 2020), the final year of the medium-term management plan, by achieving dramatic growth that far exceeds market growth through active investments to acquire market share in our Demae-can business, the main business of the Group.
The food delivery market is experiencing a moderate increasing trend, with online orders driving the entire market, amid sluggish growth in offline orders. In the Demae-can business, the Group maintains its position as the No. 1 company of the delivery portal site, but recognizes that maintaining a higher growth rate is necessary to establish an absolute position. The Group aims to expand its market share dramatically in the next three years by achieving annual growth of about 40%, far exceeding the growth of the overall market. For this purpose, the Group will actively promote the following measures during the period of the medium-term management plan.
- Active investment to sharply increase the number of Demae-can fans
We will sharply increase the number of Demae-can fans by increasing the visibility of Demae-can through greater exposure and actively implementing measures to entrench the use of the site.
- Development of stores to expand the market
We will invigorate the delivery market by dramatically increasing the number of home delivery stores through the delivery agent service using Sharing Delivery™, which we commenced in earnest in the previous fiscal year, in addition to the continuous development of stores that offer home delivery.
- Measures to improve store operation
We will contribute to improvements in the operational efficiency of stores by reducing their operational burdens through the introduction of more efficient systems by capturing changing needs for store operation.
