The company does not see any reason to terminate the agreement. In case of termination, the company will seek legal means to protect its rights and interests.
If the operation right is terminated earlier, the profit will be affected
The company still expects the rights to end in FY2040. Even if the right to operate is terminated, it is expected to be compensated. The contribution of the airport business accounted for a higher proportion of profits, and it is expected to impact the profits if the operation right is terminated early.
