Consolidated Business Performance for FY 2022

The AMITA Group is engaged in the development and provision of "Social Systems Design Business" that integrally supports sustainable corporate management and regional operations under the theme of "Redesigning industries and communities".

【Redesigning Industry】
The Group offer total support, from conception to construction and implementation, in proposing initiatives, such as decarbonization, the circular economy, and nature capital, from the perspective of total optimization, centered on the "Cyano Project," which supports the creation and business transformation of recycling-oriented businesses. Driven by expanding needs for recycling-oriented sustainable management, we received new orders from 38 companies in FY2022 (24 companies in FY2021).
In addition, although the volume of the domestic closed-loop resource-recycling service declined slightly from last year due to a decrease in manufacturing volume by domestic manufacturers and other factors, the profit margin has been on an upward trend, growing year on year due to improvements in the production process. While raw material procurement risks are becoming more apparent, the need for recycled resources is steadily expanding. In particular, closed-loop resource-recycling of silicon slurry waste liquids has been performing well in response to the increase in the volume of waste due to increased production by domestic semiconductor manufacturers. In the environmental certification assessment service, the number of clients, especially for FSC® CoC certification, has been steadily increasing (approximately 123% compared to last year), and we expect that the needs for certification acquisition will continue to expand as the momentum toward nature positivity grows, including an increase in the number of companies complying with TNFD. In addition, the Malaysian business recorded the largest ever volume of shipments of recycled resources and Ni recycled resources handled, driven by the economic recovery in the country from the spread of COVID-19 and other factors. Another equity-method affiliate, Codo Advisory, Inc., provides support services for the development and assessment of transition strategies toward decarbonization management, as well as educational workshops on climate change. In the six months since our establishment in March 2022, we have supported 10 companies, mainly major corporation in Japan and overseas.
【Redesigning Communities】
The Group is continuing to demonstrate the realization of a recyclingoriented society based on the MEGURU STATION®, a mutual aid and support community-type resource collection station. At the end of the fiscal year, we opened two stations under the Comprehensive Partnership Agreement with the Town of Tachiarai, Fukuoka Prefecture, and two stations under the Business Partnership Agreement with the City of Kobe, Hyogo Prefecture, to develop services that contribute to resolving the four major regional issues (declining birthrate and aging population, population decrease, shrinking employment, and increasing social security costs).
In addition, we are quantifying and visualizing the effects of introducing the system in municipalities by estimating "the effect of participating in MEGURU STATION® to prevent long-term care and the reduction of social security expenses" through joint research with Chiba University.
【Redesigning initiatives spanning Industry and Communities】
The Japan Circular Economy Partnership (J-CEP), for which we serve as the representative organizer, has grown by 16 member companies to 44 since its establishment in 2021. By taking advantage of the MEGURU STATION® described below, we are fostering momentum for the circular economy by demonstrating recycling throughout the supply chain and are discussing the introduction of services, such as selling by weight.
Net Sales
The Group achieved net sales of 4,824 million yen for the fiscal year under review, due to the application of the "Accounting Standard for Revenue Recognition," among other factors. In addition, the Cyano Project and the Environmental Certification Assessment Service expanded their offerings, while resource recycling of silicon slurry waste liquids has been performing well. Note that the net sales under the previous year's accounting standards were 5,330 million yen (a difference of +172 million yen from the previous fiscal year).
Operating Profit
The Group's operating profit was 609 million (49 million from the previous fiscal year) due to the increase in net sales, excluding the impact of the application of the "Accounting Standard for Revenue Recognition" and other factors.
Ordinary Profit
The Group's ordinary profit was 715 million (86million from the previous fiscal year) due to an increase in operating profit and an increase in equity in earnings of affiliates related to the Malaysian business, including a tax deduction under the green investment taxation system in that country.
Profit attributable to owners of the parent was 531 million(101 million from the previous fiscal year) due to a reduction in tax expenses resulting from the merger of subsidiaries in the previous fiscal year.
