Annual Report 2019 Editorial Note

To help stakeholders such as shareholders and investors understand not only management policies and business strategies, but also mid-to-long term value creation, since FY2016 we have integrated our Annual Report and CSR Report into this single publication.

For this Annual Report 2019, we have set "Opportunities for Life. Faster, simpler and closer to you," the Mission of Recruit Group, as the theme. We have endeavored to include activities and stories from every corner of our Group, focusing on how our company provides opportunities to people, including individual users and enterprise clients. We have also expanded the content related to Corporate Governance and Risk Management, reflecting the calls of stakeholders.
