In terms of profit, we have set the ratio of ordinary income to net sales of the entire group as an important management indicator in order to secure revenue stability.
Over the medium to long term, our largest goal is to increase revenue through the increase in the number of net cumulative subscriptions, maintain a stable upward trend of profit margin, and create a new pillar of revenue through the increase in income from other sources than "Media Service".
