Q2What are ORIX’s strengths in expanding business in Asia?

A2

ORIX has over a 40-year history of expanding in Asia, since establishing its first overseas office in Hong Kong in 1971. ORIX forms partnerships with influential companies in each region and provides services to local customers. The Asian region was greatly impacted by the Asian Currency Crisis in 1997 prompting many overseas companies to exit the region, yet ORIX maintained its operations. Based on this experience, ORIX's basic policy is one of prudent response. "Diversified investments" and "thorough observation of each transaction by top management" are especially important. Going forward, ORIX will maintain this policy and look for the right timing to take action.
