Expanding Co-Creative Businesses with Partners Based on Group Integrated Management

Domestic lease transaction volume (on a calendar year basis) has been below the previous year’s level for three consecutive years since 2020, mainly due to a decline in capital investment during the COVID-19 pandemic. On the other hand, demand for services is expected to recover as economic activities normalize, and capital investment is expected to rise over the medium to long term in fields such as decarbonization and digital technologies. We therefore expect leasing demand to reverse and recover in the future.

Designation of Strategic Growth Areas for Concentrating Resources

Under the Medium-Term Management Plan 2027, which started in fiscal 2023, our basic strategy is to further expand our initiatives and aggressively invest in business transformation and growth areas to achieve sustainable growth. We will designate growth markets and areas with high potential for collaboration with prime partners as strategic growth areas in which to pursue a strategy of concentrating resources.

As a preliminary move, in fiscal 2022 Tokyo Century and ITOCHU Corporation jointly set an investment facility of €20 million for Clean H2 Infra Fund S.L.P. of France, the world’s first large-scale clean hydrogen infrastructure investment fund.

Launch of Secondhand Smartphone and Tablet Rental Service for Corporate Users with ITOCHU

In cooperation with the wholly owned ITOCHU Corporation subsidiary Belong Inc., Tokyo Century operates Belong One, a service for corporate users requiring rental of secondhand smartphones and tablets.

Belong One was launched in response to growing demand from corporations for these devices. The service increases the reuse of smartphones and tablets, as they can be maintained and reused after the end of their rental service life. As a result, this initiative contributes to the realization of circular economies.

Boosting the Value of the Leasing Business

In cooperation with KYOCERA Communication Systems Co., Ltd. (KCCS), Tokyo Century provides private power generation support service for corporate customers.

This is a third-party service that assists corporations with introducing solar power generation systems. Tokyo Century and KCCS bear the initial investment required to install the systems as well as the labor and costs of maintenance and management. Tokyo Century handles installment of the Kyocera solar power generation system, and KCCS takes care of operation and maintenance.

The service reduces the risk of increased electricity prices during the contract period. What’s more, combined with storage batteries, the system ensures that only the minimum amount of electricity needed is used for business operations in the event of a power outage or disaster, and in that way creates a working environment where employees can work with peace of mind.

Co-Creative Businesses

In 2022, we formed a capital and business alliances with Fukuoka Financial Group (FFG) for the leasing business and made The Eighteenth Lease Co., Ltd., a member of FFG, an equity-method affiliate (in which we hold a 25% stake).

Tokyo Century collaborates with FFG under an alliance to provide a variety of financing options, including leasing, to the customers of The Bank of Fukuoka, The Kumamoto Bank, and The Juhachi-Shinwa Bank, all of which operate under FFG. We will generate synergies combining FFG’s robust customer base with our expertise in a variety of financial services, including leasing, to meet the diverse needs of our customers and contribute to the sustainable development of local communities.
