1. Explanation of Matrix Model
(1) Points of customer contact = Cross-media business platform
FIELDS will take one IP, expand it horizontally through various business platforms—our customer contact points—then refine the IP and aim to draw more fans. By simultaneously developing multiple IP in this way, we aim to further increase revenue.
Transforming IP into a series with various contact points such as visuals, games, and, pachinko and pachislot machines, as was done with Ultraman, will allow us to exercise our leverage with the aim for further IP development and earnings expansion. (Figure 1)

(2) Building up more customer contact points
In addition to the expansion of business platforms for each IP through development as shown in the example Figure 2, we aim for further IP cultivation and earnings expansion by building up more verticals in each business platform.

2. Implementation of the [IP × Business Platform] matrix model based on the rebuilt business value chain
We will expand our business as envisaged through the [IP × Business Platform] matrix model based on an organic and well-functioning business value chain. To this end, FIELDS will first focus on rebuilding its business value chain, and will aim to expand revenue through operation of the [IP × Business Platform] matrix model based upon this foundation.
