Q1What is the Medium-Term Strategic Directions FY2019-2021?

A1

ORIX manages its business portfolio by dividing it into six segments: Corporate Financial Services, Maintenance Leasing, Real Estate, Investment and Operation, Retail, and Overseas Business. 
Furthermore, taking risk and capital requirements into account, ORIX groups these six segments into three categories: “Finance”, “Operation” and “Investment.” The “Finance” business is ORIX’s customer base and source of information. However, given that the low interest rate environment makes growth difficult in financial businesses, ORIX will continue to focus on “Operation” and “Investment” to grow stable earnings and will proactively enter new markets to nurture its next core businesses.
The “Operation” business for which operational risk is taken by ORIX is positioned as ORIX's growth driver and source for new and stable earnings. ORIX will engage in M&A and expand new investment with a focus on the environment and energy business, asset management business, concession business and life insurance business as well as other new business areas coming from the change in society and the market.
The “Investment” business provides ORIX with opportunities to develop new businesses. ORIX focuses mainly on private equity businesses in Japan and overseas, aircraft and ship-related operations and will expand the scale of those businesses.

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.
