McDonald's Japan celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2021. In this memorable year, we achieved all-store sales of 652 billion yen, operating income of 34.5 billion yen, and ordinary income of 33.6 billion yen, all of which are all-time highs for the company. This is the result of our bonds with our customers, the value of the McDonald's brand, and the various measures we have taken over the past 50 years, as well as the understanding and support we have received from our shareholders for our various initiatives. I would like to take this opportunity to express my deepest gratitude.
The year 2022 marks the beginning of a new 50 years. While we are still uncertain about the outlook for our business due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have formulated a new mid-term plan in order to continue to grow and meet the expectations of our customers, which will change and increase even further in the future. In the three years through 2024, we will aim to achieve steady growth while strengthening our investments for the future.
With McDonald's purpose of “feeding and fostering communities" in our mind, we will not only pursue short-term growth and profits, but also continue to grow in the future and contribute as a member of a local community to meet the expectations of all stakeholders, including our shareholders.
Thank you for your ongoing and unwavering support.
