We aim to bring about sustainable growth for the entire HOYA Group by proactively investing the cash obtained in the Information Technology business into the Life Care business.

In the 79th fiscal year, despite a challenging business environment affected by factors such as stronger yen and the damage caused by the Kumamoto Earthquake to our Kumamoto Factory, we steadily expanded our products for cutting-edge technologies in the Information Technology business. In Life Care business, we are firmly expanding into overseas markets with our major products with the aim of making growth in the next fiscal year and beyond more certain.
