Message from the CEO

Aiming to be an NTT Group that "connects to the future," we will work on transformation and deliver new experiences and excitement.

Last updated : December 14, 2022

I would like to express our heartfelt thoughts and prayers to everyone who has been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Aiming to be an NTT Group that "connects to the future," we will work on transformation and deliver new experiences and excitement.

Looking ahead to the future of the NTT Group, we are advancing the following three initiatives in order to achieve the overarching theme of "dynamically transforming ourselves and becoming an NTT Group that delivers new experiences and excitement to its customers."

  1. (1)We will create CX (customer experience) with EX (employee experience). In order to achieve the "creation of customers' new experiences and excitement (= CX)," we must gather the combined abilities of the approximately 330,000-person NTT Group and have each and every individual employee enthusiastically take on the challenge (= EX). My mission is to first build a strong EX structure, circulate that to CX, and achieve customer satisfaction.
  2. (2)We aim to achieve decarbonization through technology. Ensuring that our descendants can sustainably live on this earth is an issue that all of us who live in these modern times must work on. In order for NTT Group to achieve carbon neutrality by 2040, we are advancing initiatives to significantly reduce power consumption through the promotion of IOWN, and to develop and expand the use of renewable energy.
  3. (3)We will continue to keep infrastructure and critical systems connected, even when major natural disasters have occurred. We will strengthen our systems for maintaining the connectivity of telecommunications infrastructure and critical systems, as well as the development of personnel who support those.

While the mission of NTT Group, to be a company that solves social issues, has not changed, we plan to transform ourselves from "a company that connects communications" into "a company that connects data." We will aim to become an NTT Group that connects to the future by leveraging all types of data and creating new businesses.

Financial Results for the First Half of the Fiscal Year Ending March 31, 2023 and Forecast for the Fiscal Year

In the first half of the fiscal year ending March 31, 2023, both operating revenues and profit reached their highest first-half levels ever, while operating income decreased due to the impact of rising electricity rates and other factors, despite the effect on profitability of the increase in revenues. Operating revenues increased by ¥398.5 billion (an increase of 6.8%) year-on-year to ¥6,286.2 billion, operating income decreased by ¥12.7 billion (a decrease of 1.3%) year-on-year to ¥996.5 billion and profit increased by ¥20.8 billion (an increase of 3.1%) year-on-year to ¥696.6 billion.

With respect to the forecast for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2023, we are forecasting increases in both revenues and income compared to the prior fiscal year, with operating revenues (¥12.6 trillion), operating income (¥1.820 trillion) and profit (¥1.190 trillion) each reaching record-high levels.

Shareholder Returns

Shareholder returns are one of our most important management concerns. Our fundamental policy in our Medium-Term Management Strategy is to pursue ongoing increases in dividends, and to also flexibly conduct share buybacks to improve capital efficiency.

We anticipate that our annual dividend for FY2022 will be ¥120 per share, making for the 12th consecutive year of dividend increases.

This would represent a 9.6x increase in dividends per share compared to FY2003. Furthermore, with respect to our share buybacks for FY2022, we conducted share buybacks of approximately ¥360.0 billion in September, and in November, we further authorized share buybacks in an aggregate amount of up to ¥150.0 billion, which we will conduct through the end of March 2023.

We hope to receive the continued understanding and support of all of our shareholders.

2022 December

President and Chief Executive Officer,
Representative Member of the Board
