Notice Regarding Transfer of Shares in Golf Operations Business Subsidiary


 Kuraray Co., Ltd. (Head Office: Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo; President: Hitoshi Kawahara) announces that it has concluded a share transfer agreement (hereinafter, “share transfer”) in which all of its shares in its consolidated subsidiary Iruma Country Club (Head Office: Ogose, Iruma District, Saitama Prefecture; President Shigeru Matsui) will be transferred to RESOL Co., Ltd. (Head Office: Mobara, Chiba Prefecture; President: Naoto Sano), which is under the umbrella of RESOL HOLDINGS Co., Ltd.

1.Objectives and Overview of Share Transfer

 Iruma Country Club has been a long-standing member of the Kuraray Group since its opening in September 1977, and has strived to create attractive courses and improve customer service. The club, with its hilly woodland courses, has a reputation for easy access from Tokyo as well as good course conditions, has been well received by many golfers.
 However, the Company’s medium-term management plan, PASSION 2026, calls for the upgrading Kuraray’s business portfolio. As the business environment surrounding the golf industry has changed, various considerations have been made to ensure that the club will continue to provide high-quality services in the future. As a result, Kuraray has determined that entrusting the management of the club to the RESOL Group, which has a reputable, proven track record in the management of hotels, golf courses, and other businesses, will contribute to the future growth of the club, and decided to proceed with the share transfer.

2.Scheduled date of share transfer

 August 31, 2023 (tentative)


 This share transfer is not expected to have a material impact on Kuraray’s consolidated performance. Going forward, we will promptly disclose any matters requiring announcement, such as revisions to earnings forecasts.
