Financial Performance

The company's revenue has been volatile in the past five years. Despite this, revenues had a 113% growth between 2016 and 2020.

Revenues was ¥14.8 trillion, a decrease of ¥1.3 billion or 8% year over year. This was mainly due to a decrease in transaction volumes in the Petrochemicals business.

Strategy

Mitsubishi Corporation has conceived its latest management plan, entitled "Midterm Corporate Strategy 2021: Achieving Growth Through Business Management Model." It will take effect from fiscal year 2019.

The new strategy will lay the groundwork for MC's sustainable growth over the next three years, recognizing how worldwide economic and geopolitical trends are putting pressure on enterprises to evolve its business models. Such trends include the US administration's America-First agenda, China' One-Belt, One-Road policy and the so-called "Fourth Industrial Revolution," the hallmarks of which are advancing digital technologies and the evolution of platform businesses.

Mergers and Acquisitions

In late 2019, Mitsubishi Corporation (MC) and Chubu Electric Power Co., Inc. (Chubu) were selected as the preferred buyers in a bid for the Netherland-based Energy Company Eneco, an integrated energy company that is actively engaged in renewable power generation projects, for 4.1 billion Euros. This acquisition will help Mitsubishi to accelerate its own renewable developments in Europe and around the world.
