II. Risks in Fujitsu Group Business Activities

8. Finance

[ Overview and impact of risks ]
Credit ratings (including CSR and sustainability-related ratings) issued to the Group by external rating agencies have a significant impact on the company’s financial and corporate reputation, and may be used as credit information when we do business with customers and business partners. If these ratings are downgraded for reasons such as failure to achieve our revenue plan or deterioration in our financial conditions, it may affect the Fujitsu Group’s ability to secure financing, as well as put the company at a disadvantage when participating in bids and other business dealings. In addition, credit insecurity, such as a deterioration in business or economic conditions of business partners, may affect the collection of receivables.

[ Measures against the risks ]
The Fujitsu Group’s measures for securing financing include ensuring liquidity, formulating plans to secure financing, and analyzing market trends. In addition, as measures for credit management, the Group works to reduce risk through exchanging ideas among credit management-related divisions, sharing and monitoring trends in corporate credit research information from external organizations with relevant departments, and providing advice, instructions, and reminders regarding credit protection.
