|On behalf of Shinko Shoji Co., Ltd. (the “Company”), I would like to express our sincere appreciation to all shareholders and stakeholders for their valued support and understanding.
Business performance in fiscal 2007 ended March 31, 2007, was marked by record-high revenues and earnings.
The principal components were sales expansion in the electronic entertainment device business, stable demand in electrical components for automobiles, and strong overseas sales of display drivers for mobile phone handset displays.
Against this backdrop, Shinko Shoji increased dividend payments to
¥30 per share in the fiscal year under review. The Company plans to increase cash dividends
to ¥55 per share in fiscal 2008 ending March 31, 2008, thereby enhancing shareholder value.
Amid rapidly changing social and economic environments, trading companies specializing in electronics are required to have employees who are capable of displaying the flexibility needed to promptly respond to various situations while functioning as members of a team of industry professionals.
As a specialist trading company, Shinko Shoji established a key principle of offering customer satisfaction and maintaining relationships as true partners through customer-centered business activities that place maximum priority on mutual growth.
The Shinko Shoji Group makes every effort to enhance corporate value and meet the expectations of all shareholders and stakeholders, from whom continued support and understanding is gratefully sought.
President Tatsuya Ogawa
