Thank you to our shareholders and investors for your ongoing interest in the ANA Group.

 In the fiscal year ended March 2017, we continued to steadily capture growing demand in our core business, air transportation, particularly for international airline division, amidst a volatile global economy that witnessed the U.K.'s decision to leave the EU, the inauguration of the Trump administration in the U.S., and increasing geopolitical risk in the Middle East and other regions. Against these backdrops, we achieved new record highs for operating income, ordinary income, and net income attributable to owners of ANA HOLDINGS INC.

 In the fiscal year ending March 2018, we will adhere to our core missions detailed in the "FY2016-2020 ANA Group Corporate Strategy" formulated in January, 2016, to expand our airline's business areas and create new businesses, as well as accelerate growth in existing businesses. Bearing in mind recent changes in global political and economic circumstances, we aim to steadily achieve our revised version for creating value through the implementation of aggressive speed management and consolidations of Peach Aviation, which is responsible for our LCC business.

 Furthermore, given the changes in the environment surrounding the ANA Group, we intend to carefully review the safety, quality, and service aspects of our business during the two fiscal years ending in March 2018 and March 2019, marking this as a period for solidifying our management base. In each of our businesses, "safety" should be our top priority as we prepare for new growth in 2020, the year of the Tokyo Olympic Games and Paralympic Games.

 Skytrax in the U.K. awarded "5 Star" highest rating for our international passenger service. Based on the high quality, we intend to improve profitability across the group as a whole in all businesses, including the air transportation, airline-related business, travel services, and trade & retail business, with the aim of becoming the leading airline group that customers continue to choose.

 We would like to express our sincerest thanks to all our shareholders and investors, and as always, we look forward to your continuous support and patronage of the ANA Group.
