EMBRACING A NEW
ENTREPRENEURIAL SPIRIT

Over the course of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries’ long history, we’ve evolved our business to support society as the world changes and evolves. This Medium-Term Business Plan (MTBP) marks an important moment for us as we conclude a period of restructuring and look toward a bright future.

Since 2015, we have implemented significant reforms as we faced organizational and financial challenges. We have renovated and strengthened our risk management structure, built a strong financial foundation and shifted to a global management structure.

Today, we take a bright view of the future. These new structures and mechanisms enable MHI to support emerging societal needs, and thereby position the company for healthy, long-term growth. The work we have done to balance business growth with financial stability has positioned us to take controlled risk, and we are already driving earnings recovery, implementing a growth strategy and investing business expansion in line with societal needs and priorities.

The result of this MTBP will impact key stakeholders in numerous positive ways. For our investors, we will drive growth and value, and remain a sound, long-term investment. For our customers, we remain committed to providing exceptional customer service and solutions that help them navigate complex challenges. For our employees, we will instill an entrepreneurial spirit within a stable environment. With a strong foundation at our feet and the winds of change at our back, we set sail towards new horizons.

RATIO - THE BEST IT
HAS EVER BEEN

By serving stakeholders and society at large in a sustainable and harmonious way, we aim to become a ¥5 TRILLION (≈ $50B USD) COMPANY BY 2020 which has a balanced Triple-One Proportion.

THE TRIPLE-ONE PROPORTION (TOP):

Striving for a 1:1:1 Balance of Net Sales, Total Assets, and Market Capitalization for Stable Growth Aligned with Corporate Values

Ratio Projections
2018 1 : 1.3 : 0.3
2021 1 : 1.1 : 0.6
2024 1 : 1 : 1

The Triple-One Proportion aims to achieve balance through a 1:1:1 ratio of three key factors: net sales, total assets and market capitalization. Increasing the scale of our business to $50 billion allows room to navigate the challenges and opportunities inherent with pursuing new innovative projects, while the Triple-One Proportion concept provides the ability to withstand any change in circumstance.
