Our recent proposals made to Kyokuto

A reason for the low valuation is that Kyokuto does not utilize leverage and the equity ratio is high due to the accumulation of equity capital.
Kyokuto’s capital-to-asset ratio is higher than other companies in the wholesale trade sector which utilize more leverage in their business. Kyokuto needs to increase its low financial leverage.

Comparison of capital-to-asset ratio with sector average


In our dialogues with Kyokuto, we proposed to increase financial leverage and enhance shareholders’ return. Specifically, Kyokuto can borrow debt to increase its financial leverage as well as undertake share buybacks and/or a large increase in dividends to decrease excessive equity and improve valuations.

The below is an excerpt from the proposal made to Kyokuto before the establishment of the special shareholder incentive. Considering the purpose of the incentive is to maintain the number of shareholders (≒ number of shares in the market), we are now proposing a “100% payout ratio” instead of a “total return ratio of 100%” .
