SERIO Holdings Co., Ltd. (6567) Financial Results for FY5/21

1. Overview of Results of Operations

(1) Results of Operations

In the fiscal year that ended on May 31, 2021, there were several states of emergency in Japan because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Due to this crisis, the outlook for the Japanese economy remained uncertain. Widespread precautions to prevent the spread of COVID-19 affected some activities of the employment assistance business. However, this business has been performing well partially because of the firm demand at companies for workforce flexibility. Normal operations continued in the after-schoolday-care business and nursery school business, along with measures to protect participants from COVID -19, in order to fulfill the role of these businesses of caring for children while a parent or other guardian is at work.

In July 2020, the Japanese government announced the 2020 Key Policies for Accelerating the Empowerment of Women. There have been numerous activities in accordance with these policies for the establishment of a framework that allows women to play an active role in workplaces. In December 2020, the Japanese government announced a New Child-raising Confidence Plan that has the goal of establishing an infrastructure of nursery schools for approximately 140,000 children by the end of 2024. Demand for child care is increasing because of the rising percentage of women in the workforce and demand is expected to continue to climb.

During the fiscal year, we continued to take actions aimed at creating jobs in order to provide an even larger number of people with opportunities to work while caring for children. We also continued to strengthen the administrative infrastructures of the after-schoolday-care and nursery school businesses to accommodate the growth of these two operations.

Sales increased because of the contribution to sales from newly opened nursery schools and after-schoolday-care facilities and a faster than expected recovery in sales in the employment assistance business following the downturn caused by the COVID-19 outbreak. Operating profit increased because the pandemic reduced expenses for instructors in the after-schoolday-care business, in addition to benefits from higher sales. There were expenditures for recruiting activities for more personnel, IT systems in order to reinforce security and other activities to strengthen our infrastructure that support the growth in the number of locations in the after -schoolday-care and nursery school businesses. In addition, to establish a base for consistent growth, we started new businesses such as the employment service for child care workers and the provision of greenery service mainly at nursery schools, kindergartens and other locations that care for children. Government employment adjustment subsidies and other payments received in association with employee furloughs were recorded as non -operating income.

As a result, net sales increased 18.3% year on year to 8,218 million yen. Operating profit was 337 million yen, up 147.1% and ordinary profit was 344 million yen, an increase of 105.5%. Profit attributable to owners of parent increased 121.3% to 223 million yen.

The following is a summary of business segment performance.

1) Employment assistance

As a company dedicated to enabling people to continue working while caring for a family, we are a source of jobs that enable more women to work in a manner that matches each stage of their lives. We submit proposals to companies in a variety of industries for personnel support that makes it possible to reduce expenses by using people in the most productive ways possible. The business climate changed during the fiscal year because of several declarations of a state of emergency by the Japanese government. By using online sales meetings, we were able to focus on sales activities for adding new customers.

In the beginning of the current fiscal year, some current customers adjusted working hours for temporary staffing personnel due to COVID-19. However, the recovery in sales following these adjustments and working hour reductions was faster than expected. In the subcontracting business, sales increased because of the expanding breadth of call center operations, expansion in office work operations in our temporary staffing business and more new contracts. Earnings in this segment increased significantly because of the higher sales, a more streamlined infrastructure in the subcontracting business, a decline in the cost of sales ratio resulting mainly from higher productivity and revisions to temporary staffing contract rates, and an improvement of operational efficiency in

our back-office department.

As a result, net sales of this business were 2,585 million yen, up 16.4% year on year, and segment profit was 101 million yen, an increase of 113.0%.

2) After-school day care

We are continuing to operate after-schoolday-care facilities while strictly following the guidelines for protection against COVID-19 infections in order to allow people to use these facilities with confidence. In March 2020, all elementary schools in Japan closed in response to a request by the Japanese government due to the COVID -19 pandemic. In June, after the state of emergency ended, schools have slowly started to resume operations. Schools shortened summer vacation to offset the school days that were lost earlier in the year. As a result, there were revisions to the plans for days of operation and operating times of the after-schoolday-care facilities operated by the SERIO Holdings Group for local governments. In addition, the number of children using these facilities was smaller than the number initially registered as some parents kept children home because of the COVID -19 pandemic. Although there were more states of emergency in 2021, there was no significant impact on the business climate for after-school day care, such as shutting down all elementary schools in Japan.

As of July 2020, the number of children on waiting lists for the after -schoolday-care club nationwide, as announced by the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare, was 15,995. The demand for after-schoolday-care facilities also remains high due to the increase in percentage of women in the workforce.

As shown in the table below, the SERIO Group opened 13 locations and added an outsourcing contract fr om one local government agency during the fiscal year. Three locations were closed because of elementary school consolidations, contract completions and other reasons. The result was a net increase of 10 locations. The number of after-schoolday-care facilities operated by the SERIO Group at the end of May 2021 was 132 for public facilities (operated for local governments), 10 for private elementary schools and one in the private sector, a total of 143.

Although sales were negatively affected by a decline in the number of children using after-schoolday-care facilities and shorter operating hours of these facilities because of the pandemic, segment sales increased because of the net increase in the number of new facilities. Earnings were higher too. One reason was the increase in sales. Earnings also benefited from a decline in expenses for instructors because of reduced operating hours due to a shorter summer vacation at elementary schools caused by the pandemic, a decline in personnel and recruiting expenses as fewer instructors were hired because of this shorter summer vacation, and a decline in expenses for instructors because of the smaller average number of children at all locations.

As a result, net sales of this business were 2,547 million yen, up 15.2% year on year, and segment profit was 157 million yen, an increase of 360.8%.
