1. Qualitative Information on Quarterly Results

  1. Business Risks
    In the first two quarters of the fiscal year ending December 2022, business risks that newly arose or changed from those described in “2. Business Conditions; 2. Business Risks” in the previous year’s securities report are as follows: Statements concerning future matters are based on the judgments of the Group (ES-CON JAPAN and its consolidated subsidiaries) as of the end of the current quarterly consolidated accounting period.
    The following item numbers attached to each heading correspond to those described in “2. Business Conditions;
    2. Business Risks” in the previous year’s securities report. Regarding “(8) Legal Violation Risks,” they arose after the securities report for the previous fiscal year was submitted.
    1. Legal Restrictions, Etc.
      In addition to the restrictions of the Companies Act and the Financial Instruments and Exchange Act, the real estate industry to which the ES-CON Japan Group belongs is subject to the restrictions of the National Land Use Planning Act, Real Estate Brokerage Act, Building Standards Act, Act on Maintenance of Sanitation in Buildings, Act on Specified Joint Real Estate Ventures, Act on Securitization of Assets, Trust Business Act, and Money Lending Business Act, etc.
      In addition, the ES-CON Japan Group conducts real estate sales and related business as a real estate company licensed under the Real Estate Brokerage Act and the Act on Advancement of Proper Condominium Management, etc., but the abolition of these or creation of new legal restrictions could affect the Group’s business performance.
      In January 2022, ES-CON JAPAN acquired shares of FUEL Inc. (hereinafter “FUEL”), which manages online funds and provides systems to specified joint real estate venture-type crowdfunding businesses, to make it a subsidiary. The details of approval and licenses obtained by FUEL are as follows.

  1. Personal Information Leakage and Information System Risks
    As a business operator handling personal information under the Act on the Protection of Personal Information, the Group receives personal information of customers and clients in each of its businesses when developing in a multidimensional way. This includes customers who purchase or consider purchasing condominiums or detached houses through the condominium sales business or reside in rental apartments as well as customers who purchase or consider purchasing permanent use rights in the columbarium business or are looking for jobs in the employment placement business. The Group has set rules for the handling of personal information (basic policy, regulations, and manual) to establish a system and keeps files containing personal information under strict safekeeping with monitoring software and restricts access authority on the system in a bid to enhance the system as a whole and also manage information other than personal information.
    ES-CON JAPAN outsources part of the sale of condominiums to sales companies and these companies are required to use part of ES-CON JAPAN’s management system to prevent customer information from being leaked to third parties and handle customer information within the scope to ensure confidentiality.
    As malware (Emotet)(*1) infection spreads rapidly in Japan, the Group’s information system has been exposed to cybersecurity threats, including cyberattacks or fraudulent access, in recent months. To minimize system risk, ES-CON JAPAN has revamped its security environment, including enhancing employee training and conducting security training programs periodically.

Should personal information be leaked due to unforeseen circumstances, however, the Group’s sales could fall due to its ruined credibility or compensation for damages may arise, and such may affect the Group’s business performance.

*1 Malware is a general term for malicious software, combining these two words. Emotet is malware that downloads a variety of malicious software in addition to stealing information. It is found to be attached to suspicious emails by malicious people, which accelerates the spread of infection.

    1. Climate Change Risks
      A society where there is increasing climate damage is assumed for the future, and the increasing risk on business continuity caused by climate change may have an impact on ES-CON JAPAN’s management results and financial position.
      In June 2022, the ES-CON JAPAN endorsed the recommendations of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) which assess the financial impact of risks and opportunities from climate change on management and encourage companies to issue relevant disclosures. We disclose information on the impact of climate change on our business based on the TCFD framework.
      For details, please see (2) Explanation of Operating Results; 8) Endorsement of TCFD recommendations and information disclosure.
    2. Legal Violation Risks
      Should an employee or officer of the Group or ES-CON JAPAN violate any relevant laws as the Group conducts business (including the Companies Act, Real Estate Brokerage Act, Construction Industry Act, Licensed Architect Act, Financial Instruments and Exchange Act, Act on the Protection of Personal Information, Money Lending Business Act, Act on Advancement of Proper Condominium Management, Labor Standards Act, and Employment Security Act), administrative discipline may be imposed by the authorities concerned. In this case, due to the Group’s ruined social credibility and compensation for damages, its financial position, business performance, and reputation in the market may be affected.
  1. Explanation of Operating Results
    In the first two quarters of the fiscal year ending December 2022, the number of COVID-19 cases surged but subsided after March 2022 and normalization of economic and social activities and economic recovery progressed due to the easing of movement restrictions, etc.
    In the real estate industry to which the ES-CON JAPAN Group belongs, the real estate market remained robust and investors’ appetite for investment remained strong both domestically and abroad with housing demand being pushed up by work-style reform and new lifestyles such as working from home, partly due to the supportive effect of the continuation of monetary easing measures.
    On the other hand, regarding prospects, downside risks to the economy have increased as prices of materials are surging on the back of the deteriorating situation in Ukraine, inflation is accelerating due to the yen’s sharp depreciation, many countries, including the U.S., have switched over to a tight monetary policy, and an upward trend for interest rates is gaining force. The future trend of the real estate market remains uncertain and we need to develop the real estate business prudently.
    Amid these highly unpredictable business circumstances, ES-CON JAPAN strives to post a record profit this year, the second year of the fourth medium-term management plan “IDEAL to REAL 2023” (the 3-year period from fiscal year ended December 2021 to fiscal year ending December 2023) formulated in February 2021, with the basic policy: “Transformation and Rapid Progress.”
    Regarding the Group’s business performance in the first two quarters of fiscal year ending December 2022, sales of condominiums in the real estate sales business grew steadily and both sales and profit surpassed the initial estimates.
