Naomichi Hayashi President and CEO

We will meet your expectations by maintaining high growth based on the self-storage business.

In fiscal 2018, the performance of the self-storage business, our mainstay business, remained firm, and we recorded net sales of 28,828 million yen, operating income of 2,782 million yen, ordinary income of 2,536 million yen and net income of 1,810 million yen.

Looking at sales by segment, the Property Management Service, which manages “Hello Storage,” a leading brand of rental storage space, and opens locations in that brand, posted sales of 25,129 million yen, and the Property Revitalization & Liquidation Service, which deals with land rights that are less susceptible to real estate market conditions, recorded sales of 3,698 million yen. Overall, both sales and income increased from the previous fiscal year.

The mainstay self-storage business is expanding steadily. The number of managed units increased by 9,990 units from the end of the previous fiscal year, to 91,545 units. Awareness of self-storage is increasing among users and property owners as non-residential real estate. Limited land rights business has grown to become a business contributing to earnings.

In terms of finance, we continue to build a sound and stable financial foundation. We will continue to make investments in our future and return a high level of profits to shareholders by conducting business in consideration of cash flows.

We will enhance our corporate value by maintaining high growth based on the stable self-storage business to continue to meet the expectations of our shareholders and investors. I hope you will also enjoy the growth of Arealink together and ask for your continued support and guidance for many years to come.
