Comments from Auditor

Auditing the Execution of Operations Related to Business Development Amid a Changing Market Environment

監査役(常勤)平尾 一氏Capcom's team of corporate auditors consists of four individuals, including two external auditors.

Daily audit operations are implemented in accordance with the audit policy and segregation of duties determined by the Board of Corporate Auditors. To perform our duties, we communicate with the Board of Directors, the Internal Auditors Office and the Internal Controls Office and other persons within the company, and work to ensure a suitable audit environment is in place. In addition, collaborating with the Audit Committee, we constantly share information and views in order to reinforce operational audits. We also audit and verify frameworks that ensure director duties conform to laws and the company's articles of incorporate as well as frameworks for ensuring the appropriate operations of the company (internal control system).

Corporate auditors attend board of directors and other important company meetings, and based on reports from directors on their duties, when necessary, we request further explanations and browse important decision-making documents to investigate the status of Capcom's operations and assets.

Looking ahead, with Capcom engaged in a dramatically changing market environment, going forward, I would like to further strengthen communication and information exchange with directors at our affiliated subsidiaries and perform audits based on fundamental perspectives.
