SoftBank's Take on Challenge

In line with our growth strategy of “Beyond Carrier”, we are expanding our business domain into social media, payment, media, and e-commerce through the acquisition of Z Holdings and the launch of “PayPay”, while pursuing stable growth of our telecommunications business. For enterprises, we provide a variety of solutions ranging from network construction, data centers, cloud services, security, AI/IoT, and digital marketing. We continue to evolve into a comprehensive digital platform providing Japan's top-class ICT (Information and Communication Technology) services.

What Value We Create

We use our strong telecommunications infrastructure as a foundation to provide top class ICT services in Japan, and we are involved in the digitalization of all kinds of industries. It is therefore no exaggeration to say that, without us, it is no longer possible to even think about the digitalization of Japan. Based on this awareness and pride, we create services that increase the convenience of and enrich people's lives while also utilizing the power of technology to contribute to the problem-solving of society as a whole.

How We Create Value

The impact of the mobile service price reduction in Japan is expected to peak in March 2023 and then diminish significantly. In the medium to long term, we will strive to maximize corporate value through the “Beyond Carrier” strategy, which includes growth in the Enterprise and Yahoo/LINE segments, growth and monetization of “PayPay”, and growth in group synergies. At the same time, we will promote a human resources strategy that supports business growth and technology strategies that will drive DX in Japanese industries.

Future Plans for PayPay
We are aiming further growth by promoting the widespread use of cashless payments and expanding financial services
