For Shareholders and Investors
We will establish a redistribution infrastructure that contributes to SDGs
and take on challenge of digitally transforming to the expanding B2B distribution market.
Aucfan Group has adopted "RE-INFRA COMPANY" as its corporate identity, and based on an idea of building a one-of-a-kind infrastructure that integrates various "RE" of society, we will continue to expand our business on "RE" from operation of our original business which is price comparison media "aucfan.com", B2B wholesale platform called "NETSEA" and "NETSEA Auction*1" for slow moving inventory, returned goods, and out-of-date products.
In recent years, B2B distribution market in Japan has been estimated to be on scale of 300 trillion yen*2, and overseas, we are observing a new trend with a birth of unicorn company in B2B distribution field.
In addition, starting with the SDGs, the issue of waste loss has become a major focus of attention around the world, and it is estimated that waste loss in Japan reaches approximately 22 trillion yen*3 per year. Furthermore, market for returned goods will be expanded in the future as the rate of e-commerce increases.
In contrast, Aucfan Group has focused on the lagging digital transformation (DX) in the B2B market, particularly among SMBs (small and medium-sized businesses and sole proprietors), and has been working to reduce waste loss as an issue in September 2021.
Specifically, we have been developing solutions to support inventory liquidation using its stock value solution, which optimizes prices and sales channels by visualizing the market value of products using trading data and AI technology that it has cultivated since its founding, and its product distribution platform, which supports distribution for retail and distribution businesses, especially SMB (small and medium-sized businesses and sole proprietors).
In addition to reaffirming the necessity of DX in this market in the future, we see this as an excellent opportunity to become a leading company in the field of reverse logistics (return logistics) in the waste loss market, and are promoting the selection and concentration of businesses for future growth.
We hope that our shareholders will support our mission and look forward to your continued support.
