What are your FY2017 financial results?

During the fiscal year ended March 31, 2018, in Capcom's core Digital Contents business, Monster Hunter: World was a massive, record-setting success, becoming the best-selling title in company history, while Nintendo Switch titles such as Monster Hunter XX (Double Cross) Nintendo Switch Ver. and Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers enjoyed hit status as well.

Meanwhile, in its Amusement Equipments business, the impact of recent changes in model-testing methods has worsened market conditions, presenting Capcom with a challenging situation; nevertheless, the strong performance from its Digital Contents business has more than offset this, delivering sales and profit growth in the company's consolidated results.

As a result, net sales increased to 94,515 million yen (up 8.4 % year-over-year), operating income increased to 16,037 million yen (up 17.5 % year-over-year), ordinary income increased to 15,254 million yen (up 21.2 % year-over-year), and net income attributable to owners of the parent increased to 10,937 million yen (up 23.2 % year-over-year). Capcom has achieved five consecutive years of operating income growth, with all profitability figures from operating income down setting record highs.

Moving forward, Capcom will strengthen digital download sales and increase its pipeline of major title releases according to its medium-term strategic map, with the aim of continuing to grow the Digital Contents business.
