As rich as our past has been, our future brings many opportunities for growth. We believe there are three areas from which we will grow:
1) Increase market penetration of existing products through geographic expansion and synergies with existing Sumitomo Chemical regional companies,
2) Accelerate the global market penetration of existing growth products through increased R&D evaluation activity and registration focus, and
3) Improve the new product pipeline through targeted licensing and acquisition activity, consistent with Our Vision.
By following these objectives, we will continue to bring our customers the value-added products and services they expect. This will also help us to remain the worldwide leader in the identification, assessment, commercialization and supply of low-risk, environmentally compatible products for agriculture, public health, forestry, and the indoor and outdoor household insecticide-ingredient markets.
