Under our Group mission “Space for your Smile,”
we will take on the challenge of pioneering new businesses while
also expanding our business areas.
We greatly appreciate your continued understanding and support for the business activities of the SKY Perfect JSAT Group.
On April 1, 2019, I was appointed as the President of SKY Perfect JSAT Holdings Inc. and SKY Perfect JSAT Corporation.
With the emergence of various new platforms as a result of innovation in digital technology, the environment in which the Group operates is changing rapidly, and the needs of our customers are becoming more diverse and sophisticated at an unprecedented speed. I hope to develop the Group's business models and advance initiatives aimed at solving problems for our customers and for society. To do so, we will first solidify the domestic footholds of both our Media Business and our Space Business and strengthen the basic profitability of the Group, before expanding our businesses with a focus on the Asia region.
For the Media Business, as well as enhancing our existing pay broadcasting services, it will be necessary to offer the value that customers really want. Therefore, we intend to collaborate actively with partners in other industries and fields, rolling out services through new openings, including the health sector, for the middle- and pre-middle-aged customers who constitute the bulk of our SKY PerfecTV! subscribers. Moreover, with the 2020 Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics in sight, it is expected that 4K/8K large-screen TVs will become a household staple, and rather than simply treating these as high-resolution TV panels, the Group will harness them as a tool for providing interactive services that enrich people's lives, incorporating digital technology, such as 5G, AI, and IoT.
Through our Space Business, we are playing an important role in the social infrastructure that supports people's comfort and peace of mind, including provision of societal security against threats such as natural disasters, contribution to Japan's national security, and provision of in-flight and on-vessel internet connections, where needs are increasing. However, we also recognize that the market will not expand through existing satellite communication services alone. By working together with partners armed with cutting-edge technology and fresh ideas inside and outside Japan, it is necessary to improve the operating rate of our communication satellite infrastructure and provide services that offer new value. In addition, as a new business area, we will provide new services such as information analysis and real-time satellite image distribution services that combine the use of communication satellites with, for example, drones and future stratospheric platforms.
Across the Group as a whole, we will aim to increase productivity through further improvements in management efficiency and work-style reform. We are committed to the challenge of growing and transforming as a company, and to enhancing the corporate value of the SKY Perfect JSAT Group, while listening to our stakeholders, including our employees, business partners, shareholders, and local communities.
We look forward to your continued support in the future.
