Information to help investors gain a deeper insight into who we are
Who are we?
We are a company with a robust financial base, high profitability and stability.
■Strong financial standing
Nissan Chemical has built up a robust financial base, having given careful consideration to a balance between shareholders’ equity and debt. As the figure below shows, our equity ratio continues to climb, while our debt is falling. As a result, our D/E ratio, one of the key indicators of financial soundness, is on a downward trend (the lower the ratio the sounder a company’s financial position).
■High profitability and stability
We have achieved high profitability and stability over an extended period of time thanks to our well-balanced business Portfolio that generates stable income streams and high margin returns that drive our growth.
