Adoption of International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS)


December 27, 2016


PARCO Co., Ltd. has decided to adopt International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) in place of Japanese Accounting Standards (Japanese GAAP) in its consolidated financial statements starting from the first quarter of the fiscal year ending February 28, 2018.

PARCO Group is adopting IFRS to correspond with the beginning of its next Medium-term Business Plan (starting from March 2017), with the aim of improving the international comparability of financial information for investors, facilitating coherent management by unifying accounting standards with those of PARCO’s parent company, J. Front Retailing Co., Ltd, and increasing understanding and awareness of our business model by more accurately reflecting it in financial statements.
