Medium-Term Management Plan 2023
Medium-Term Management Plan 2023, toward Achieving Long-Term Vision 100
Background for Revising Medium-Term Management Plan 2020
The Oenon Group has worked toward the quantitative targets set in Medium-Term Management Plan 2020, namely “net sales of ¥100.0 billion and ordinary income of ¥5.0 billion.” However, the external environment has changed significantly from the time this plan was formulated.
- Cost of sales has increased, due to rising energy costs (crude oil and gas).
- Logistics costs have grown, due to mounting personnel and fuel expenses.
- Repeated, severe natural disasters have suppressed consumption.
- Competition has grown more stringent due to the revised Liquor Tax Act going into effect.
- The Hokkaido Eastern Iburi Earthquake led to the suspension of operations at the Tomakomai Factory.
To take these external environmental factors into account, we have formulated our next medium-term management plan before the previous plan has ended. Hence, Medium-Term Management Plan 2023 runs for the five-year period from 2019 to 2023.
Overview of Medium-Term Management Plan 2023

5. Follow a real estate CRE strategy

6. Quantitative targets
・On February 10, 2022, the Company decided to withdraw the quantitative targets below for now, mainly because its management environment is changing dramatically and its outlook remains uncertain due to factors such as surging or persistently high ingredient prices and energy prices, and the expectation of prolonged increases in material prices and logistics expenses driven by high crude oil prices.
|Net sales||\90 billion|
|Ordinary income||\3 billion|
|Ordinary income margin||3.3%|
|Dividends per share||\10|
