Message from the President

Toward further sustainable growth

Tatsuo Higuchi President, Representative Director, and CEO

The year 2016 saw unpredictable events worldwide and global economic conditions continue to defy prediction. At the Otsuka Group we have reached a strategic milestone, half way through our Second Medium-Term Management Plan. We are currently implementing measures to lay the foundation for achieving plan goals. Our business model focuses on steadily moving toward total healthcare in the broadest sense—encompassing pharmaceuticals and nutraceuticals*—as we increase product value and strengthen our competitiveness, the basis for further sustainable growth.

In November 2016, Otsuka Holdings became a signatory to the United Nations Global Compact. We are confident that we can contribute to global sustainable development by practicing our corporate philosophy— “Otsuka-people creating new products for better health worldwide.” Our commitment to the UN Global Compact reaffirms the Otsuka Group’s determination to practice corporate social responsibility and earn the trust of all stakeholders. We continue to focus on building close, communicative relationships with local communities.

In accordance with our corporate philosophy, the Otsuka Group remains dedicated to unwavering principles that guide our efforts to take on the challenges that Otsuka is uniquely equipped to address, as well as our aspiration to fulfill the wishes of people around the world to lead healthy lives.

We deeply appreciate your ongoing support.

Tatsuo Higuchi
President and Representative Director, CEO
