Medium-term Management Plan

Tokyu Corporation (the “Company”) hereby announces the development of a Three-Year Medium-Term Management Plan (period covered: fiscal 2021 to fiscal 2023; the “Plan”) that begins in fiscal 2021.

Under the previous Three-Year Medium-Term Management Plan that started in April 2018, the Company and its consolidated subsidiaries (the “Group”) steadily executed and completed key measures, including large development projects, such as the Shibuya Scramble Square East building and Minami-machida Grandberry Park, and safety investments, such as the installation of railway platform doors at the rate of 100%. However, the Group failed to achieve the numerical targets set out in that plan due to the strong impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Significant changes have also occurred in operating conditions surrounding the Company, including issues that have emerged as a result of COVID-19’s spread. The Company recognizes the need to map out strategies based on its awareness of the signs of medium- and long-term paradigm shifts, grasping changes in actions, demands and other aspects of society, including a trend toward a lower birth rate and an aging population, population decline, workstyle changes, and the evolution of digital technologies.

In the Plan, the Company adheres to a policy of sustainable management for addressing essential sustainability themes, and helping to solve social issues while achieving business growth through a long-term resource-recycling business model under the Group slogan, Toward a Beautiful Age. The Company additionally adopts “変革(Henkaku)” for revenue recovery and growth in response to changes in the operating environment as another basic policy in the Plan. The Company seeks to restore its revenue level by dealing with the latest changes in the business environment and advancing measures for realizing structural reforms. At the same time, the Company aims at achieving sustainable growth by enforcing key strategies in the period under the Plan, which is positioned as a turning point for new growth.

The overview of the Plan is as presented in the Attachment.
