1. Qualitative Information on Financial Results for the Third Quarter Ended December 31, 2021

(1) Summary of operating results

During the first nine months under review, the Japanese economy was moving toward recovery, albeit at a slower pace than the level before the spread of COVID-19, reflecting the gradual easing of the impact of COVID-19 thanks to large percentages of people vaccinated, among other factors. While the economic activity is expected to recover as the result of the easing of the impact of COVID-19, the outlook still remains uncertain.

Under the corporate mission "Bringing professionals closer," the Company has been operating the Internet media business through portal sites such as Bendo4.com for legal consultation and zeiri4.com for tax consultation, while also providing IT and solution services including CloudSign, a cloud-based online contract conclusion service.

As a result of the above, net sales reached 5,000 million yen, up 31.4% year on year, operating profit amounted to 833 million yen, up 274.4% year on year, ordinary profit was 839 million yen, up 271.9% year on year, and profit came to 520 million yen, up 367.5% from a year earlier.

Operating results by business segment are as follows.

(Media business)

In the Media business, the Company engages in the Internet media business through the legal consultation portal site Bendo4.com and the tax consultation portal site zeiri4.com.

In the bengo4.com business, the Company focused on providing content that is helpful for users and improving usability. It also sought to increase recognition through the distribution of articles of bengo4.com news, an owned media channel which lawyers use to explain familiar topics from a legal perspective. Consequently, monthly site visitors decreased 14.7% year on year, to 10.16 million in December 2021. The number of registered lawyers as of the end of the third quarter under review rose 5.2% year on year, to 22,044, of which the number of lawyers with paid member subscriptions to the lawyer support service stood at 5,171 (a decrease of 0.8% year on year). Meanwhile, the number of paid subscribers to bengo4.com paid services grew 7.1% year on year, to172,797.

As a result, net sales and segment profit increased 6.1% and 23.3% year on year, to 2,835 million yen and 1,156 million yen, respectively, in the first nine months under review.

(IT/Solutions business)

In the IT/Solutions business, the Company provides IT and solution services including CloudSign, a cloud-based online contract conclusion service.

In the CloudSign service, the Company sought to reinforce its development and sales systems by actively recruiting human resources, while simultaneously improving usability, increasing recognition and expanding its customer base through the placement of advertisements in a range of media, among other efforts. As a result, the number of contracts transmitted increased 61.1% year on year, to 1,153,499 in the third quarter under review.

As a result, net sales increased 91.2%, to 2,165 million yen, and segment profit came to 309 million yen (as opposed to a segment loss of 205 million yen in the same period of the previous year) in the first nine months under review.

(2) Summary of financial position

Total assets at the end of the third quarter under review stood at 3,769 million yen, rising 666 million yen from the end of the previous fiscal year. This mainly reflected increases in cash and deposits, accounts receivable and software in progress.

(Current liabilities)

Current liabilities at the end of the third quarter under review increased 146 million yen from the end of the previous fiscal year, to 1,052 million yen.
