AN UPDATE ON OUR PROGRESSAN UPDATE ON OUR PROGRESS

A MESSAGE FROM SEIJI IZUMISAWA, PRESIDENT AND CEO

SEIJI IZUMISAWA, President and CEO

One of my favorite expressions is: "Think big, start small." This is how I think of the Medium-Term Business Plan – an ambitious vision with a practical path forward. This approach will enable us to continue to provide value to our investors, our customers, our employees and society at large.

Since becoming CEO in April, I have seen the positive impact that the reforms we have undertaken during the past years have had on this company. We are executing as planned and have strengthened our financial foundations. While the global business environment presents us with a number of challenges, and while there are still actions we must take within the company, these reforms have prepared us well. Our progress despite these challenges gives me great confidence in the future.

Now, we are poised for the next stage of growth. In this Medium-Term Business Plan update, we share an expanded view of how global megatrends inform our business priorities. We will continue to focus our core competencies around society's needs and enhance our capabilities in Decarbonization, Electrification and Intelligent Systems. Integrating our proven excellence in manufacturing and mechanical systems together with the latest technologies will position us to provide practical solutions to the world's most pressing issues.

Our customers, investors and employees have high expectations for our company. As do I. We will continue to "think big, start small" as we drive efficiency and profitability, enabling successful growth for years to come.

SEIJI IZUMISAWA,
President and CEO
